I get depressed once in a while and i think im also emotionally unstable. I think part of the reason i dont ecperience life is because i dont know how to keep up with conversations. I've just always been the quiet type andnthats ruinig my chances of making actual relationships with people. I think i need to see a therapist before i get overly depressed but im just afraid. Im kinda pushed to see one cos my sister really thinksnitll help and if she doesn't push me ill probably never fet better. Im just terrified of telling a dtranger about my issues so imnwondering if you guys would tell me your experiences of seeing a therapist so ill feel better. Like what do they usually ask and how does the whole thing work?

There's nothing to be afraid of. Therapy does work but its directly proportional to the honesty you put in it. If they ask how is your sex life or how often you masurbate you suck it up and tell them. They're not being nosy. Sex is a normal part of everyday life and if you're not engaging in it they want to know why. It could be medical or psychological if you're not having it. I promise no matter what you tell them your thoughts they will not be horrified and throw you in a looney bin and throw away the key. Good luck0

I've been to several psychologist through my life as I struggle with depression and other symptoms caused by Bipolar Disorder. Usually they'll start out asking questions about you and then they'll go into your family history and childhood quite extensively because what happened in your childhood shapes you and might have influenced you in a way you never realized. In general they don't always give advice or anything. They rather ask you questions that makes you elaborate and guide the conversation in a way that makes you think about things deeply and then usually you start to see things differently because of it. I can honestly say my psychologists have always helped me and made my life manageable. I've yet to walk away thinking it was a waste of my time.0
