Where wild minds come to rest
I've never been theraphy before. The only thing that I've done is see a social worker which I stopped going to after she reccomended me to theraphy which I never went to because I wanted to focus on school. Thing with me is, I get good grades and I usually have an over 80 average but this semester I just lost motivation after getting a 70 in math last semester so I started off very badly, I didn't have the motivation nor the desire to do well. I skipped classes, I couldn't concentrate during classes, I came to school late and my average for this semester is a flat 74% that too with courses that were easier than last semester except for physics. And all of you know how hard it is to balance grades with MD. MD has also been one of the reasons I did so badly and so has this internet addiction that I have produced. I look up everything I'm curious about. I write fanfiction, I watch videos(I'm interested in various topics, I'm the most curious person you'll find), I debate in forums, and then there's fb, shows I watch. I swear to god I have an internet addiction. It's ridiculous and my MD has also gotten worse. Anyways, I have a friend that goes to theraphy and she says it really helps. I was thinking about going this summer but I have no idea what to expect.
So I have a few questions. I'm sorry this is going to be long. So how were all of your experiences with your therapists? Did you go because you wanted to or you felt that you needed help or did you go because you had to? Were you able to tell your psychologist/theraphist about MD? And let's say I choose to tell my therapist about MD, would she reccomend I go to a psychologist because she would think that I have a comepletely different illness than MD like Adhd, or schrizo, bipolar, OCD and a lot of the illnesses that I've heard people say they've been labeled by their psychologist? Should I even talk about my MD, my social anxiety and my other issues to my theraphist as she's not a psychologist and may not be able to handle me properly? Has there ever been any time when your theraphy has had a negative effect on you. For example, lower your self esteem because your therapist doesn't understand you so you build more walls up and you feel as if nobody in this can understand you and relate to your problems? Or has theraphy made you depressed about a memory of a traumatic event that you were happy about forgetting? And what are the benefits that you experienced from theraphy?
