hey i think i might have anxiety of some sort. i wanna bring up a psychiatrist or something with my parents but confrontation is...horrible for me. any tips? 8')
Just say that one of your friends was recently diagnosed, or has been discussing diagnosing themselves with their parents, and then tell your family that you relate a lot to their symptoms and that you think talking to someone outside of the family could help you/give you a new point of view on the situation.
People oftentimes hear the word ‘psychiatrist’ and immediately shut down or object and claim nothing is ‘wrong’ with you. It becomes a game of out-logicing them and also being more polite but insistent lol.
