Hoping for anonymity, here's my stuff

Hidden

I have been in therapy for two years, and my therapist thinks I have issues with anxiety. However, he just thinks they are stemming from my moderate depression, which fades in and out. But I just don't think he's right, I want to tell him, but I worry about all the things he could think. And I just get fucking lost. I feel like im going insane, I don't know what's wrong anymore. Bouncing between every possible thing that could be an issue.

Sidenote: Diagnosed with ADD at age of 8.

From my experience, depression and anxiety usually go hand in hand. But I advise you to tell him what's on your mind, no matter what it is, and not worry about what he thinks. You both have to be on the same page if you're going to make progress. Be completely open and honest with your therapist. You won't shock him. He's heard it all a million times before.

I know I can’t fully understand what you’re going through but I have gone through something similar where I believed I had an eating disorder and my therapist thought I just watched a video and decided that I wanted to be like it, if you feel it’s that big of an issue for you I’d say something to him but if you think it’s not worth it, you do not have to say anything to him, you’re allowed to think whatever you want and if you think he’s wrong then your thoughts are valid (sorry if this wasn’t helpful and kind of all over the place but I’m here for you if you want support)

I honestly wonder if I am just another kid who thinks he has something sometimes, and honestly avoid most if every video/website/anything about mental health. I feel like it will get stuck in my head and I'll end up thinking I have it. I once looked at a page about sociopaths and 6 months later, barely able to breath and shaking like shit I told my therapist what I thought. Reasoned it out, I like people too much so it's probably not right. I agree with him, but every now and again I question why I am thinking so much about what other people mean when they talk to me. I just can't find any clean head space anymore, something always leads me back. Ect.

Man, I shouldn't have posted this honestly. I'm fucking myself up with all of this.

Honestly it really looks like it’s eating you up so I definitely think you should bring it

Up to him, it can’t get better until you start doing things to make it better

I think that you should tell your therapist how you truly feel, he's a professional and he should be able to use the given information to help you. I am so sorry that you are feeling this way. Please stay strong and calm. Best of luck to you friend xoxo.

Hey there, as some of the others have said, please be open & honest with your therapist. Nothing is wrong with having anxiety. I believe I’ve had anxiety long before anything bad happened to trigger my depression. I think it would help you a lot to make sure you get the best care that you need. We are all here for you. We are all going through the same things. I hope this helped. <3

No PTSD? I was diagnosed with PMDD, depression, anxiety, lack of concentration, imbalanced hormones, insomnia but the reality was that I had childhood trauma and these were all resulting from the PTSD I developed from it.
