  • How the heck do I find a therapist? (or any medical professional that could help in general)

    I'm planning on seeing a therapist for my problems (social anxiety, not diagnosed, so that's a problem). I don't know what to look for and what's right for me, do I need a counselor, do I need a psychologist, psychiatrist? Which one is right for me? What do I look for and note when looking for one (medical professional)? And what if I was never checked and diagnosed? Am I qualified to get help from a psychologist? How do I even start omg I have so many questions I can't even write right now. What do I look for in therapists? What do i need to look for when looking at therapists profile online. Please help. Excuse this messy question. I have many symptoms of social anxiety and desperately need help of some sort. Feel free to add additional information on how you found your therapist if you got one. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also I wanna add, I'm looking at Psychology Today therapist finder and what do I look at in there that's important? Thank you.
  • I'm Exausted! I don't know what to do. Can you help me?

    I have recently started college in a new town where I don't know anyone, I love the college and the friends I have made are lovely. I am not a shy person (although I have my moments). Anyway, I haven't been into college for two weeks now, I'm waking up with morning sickness, throwing up, and tightness in my chest and throat and a crazy heartbeat.. On a normal day I can feel my heart beat and have a tight chest and have waves of sickness throughout the day. My diet is good, At night I sleep like a log (And for ages, like 12 hours is normal.) I'm quite a fearful person, I don't think I have extreme OCD, but I'm very particular about things, so its possible. I am also very claustrophobic to the point where being hugged or being in a building i feel i cant leave feels like I'm suffocating. I am currently having acupuncture, and just finished some hypnotherapy which I'm not convinced has worked. I know nothing about anxiety and how to cure or deal with it, or how to know what the problem it is, Can i be tested? shall I try Therapy? i don't know, I don't really want to start taking pills, but I need to move on with my life and this is really holding me back! Please help if you can.
  • Is anxiety cureable or do you have it for life and just learn to control it?

  • Tongue Picking Problem

    I'm not sure if I have anxiety or ocd but am very skeptical that I do. I have an odd problem with picking/pulling off taste buds. Ive had this problem for as long as I can remember, i get so into it I dont even notice when I do it until my tongue is missing chunks and my fingers are bloody. Its so disgusting, unsanitary, painful, and just weird. I dont know whats wrong with me and i dont know how to stop.
