    (male 18)erm yeah, so in 30 minutes i have an appointment with the doctor on our uni campus

    its mainly about feeling very low after starting uni, and self harming worsened lots, but over the weekend i felt very very very low all weekend, to the point where i just didnt want to live, and was harming like hell, i am feeling more back to normal atm, but i cant ignore how i felt over the weekend, because its likely to happen again, and I'd fed up of being silent now anyway

    but i have been panicking all day about the appointment, and i've felt sick, not been able to eat anything, seriously i dont want to go anymore im just so worried that he/she will think its all a lie, and because of that, im just worried that i wont be able to make it look truthful, adding to em not believe me further, why am i panicking so much

    someone been through something like this before? make me feel better about it because atm i will just have a panic attack as soon as i walk to reception

    I've had a mate like this before. It got bad, really bad when he didnt go and get help. Feeling suicidal etc.

    The day we made him get councelling, we saw a completely different person. He was happier, going out more and enjoying life.

    Now he is in a great job with a fit girl and has alot more self confidence.

    My advice is, don't worry about getting help. Don't be embarrased. Stick at it, and things WILL get better!

    Take a deep breath. You won't have to say everything all at once by yourself. If you just explain you've been feeling down it will go from there and the doctor will hopefully ask the relevant questions.

    You should be proud of yourself for recognising you need help.

    :hugs: I've been through the same thing, it is really hard telling a doctor about all that stuff for the first time. They shouldn't be judgmental though, and I felt quite relieved once I'd finally done it. Good luck.

    Don't worry, the more you talk to her the easier it'll get. You don't sound pathetic at all, and I hope the counselling works out for you.
