Later on this afternoon I have my first appointment with a psychiatrist for my crippling anxiety and depression that has stemmed from the anxiety. I know I shouldn’t be, but I am honestly terrified of this appointment. From anyone who has gone to a psychiatrist what should I expect from this experience? What was your experience? Is it more clinical like a primary care doctor or laid back and comfortable like a counselor or therapy session? I do a lot better when it feels more of a conversation even though I know they’re assessing me, but is it just different from psychiatrist to psychiatrist or is it almost one in the same besides obviously having different personalities?
