So my mom's sort of forcing me to go to a psychologist today. I've never been to one before don't really know what I'm gonna talk about. Anyone have experience going to one?
should I tell them about my waifu?
I assume you mean psychiatrist, psychology is usually meant for research and not diagnosis. Get ready for a wrong diagnosis. It is so behind that it's pretty much guesses and pseudo science at this point.
All psychiatrist believe different shit so you can visit different ones and they can guess different shit for you. It's a big waste of money though, hence why no mental disorder has been cured, only badly "treated".
You're an idiot, psychiatry is almost strictly just treating mental illness with medications. Psychologists help you come to understandings and realizations with the aim of changing your behaviors for the better.
don't mention anything autistic, including but not limited to:
video games (you can say you play them, but don't mention specific games)
music beyond pop/rock/alt/normie music (aka don't say "I like mongolian throat singing")
lack of girlfriend
anything related to your ass or genitals (idk you can never know what people are gonna say to their psychologist, best to be exhaustive)
anime (for the love of god do NOT mention anime or cartoons)
I went to one after my parents got divorced at the behest of my mother. I was 13 I think. Wasn't bad, but didn't really do anything for me, so I stopped going after a couple visits. Their job is to help you out, so if it's a bit personal then feel free to express your feelings. Just don't autismo too hard.
It's a load of shit for the most part.
I get forced to go to them so they don't stop my neetbux.
Just fucking lie, you can't cure what's wrong with people like us without some medications that'll fuck you right up.
Just fake some normie problems, your anxiety and sometimes mild depression will do.
I actually opened up to one once, showed her everything the was fucked up with me. She just stared at me like I was a freak and essentially told me to get over it, in so many words.
Just do what you have to, to ensure you don't have to go again.
What's bothering you anon?
Here's what you do:
1 - Make a list of things that you want to get out of counseling.
2 - Make a timeline of when you want to accomplish these.
3 - Discuss both with counselor.
4 - Be prepared to make adjustments in both goals and timelines
5 - Continue counseling with both goals and timelines in mind
6 - Every month (assuming you go every week), compare progress towards goals and timelines
7 - If either are off, discuss why with counselor to keep them on track
You may get a counselor that really wants to help, or you may have one that is just looking for billable hours. If you don't do the goal/timeline thing you will lose all control.
