    How much do I tell them?

    I was just referred to a mental health clinic, going in to see them in a few weeks, and I have no idea how much I can safely tell them, and still get the help I need. I have a 15 month old daughter at home, and if she got taken away that'd be it for me. She's the only reason I'm fighting all...

    dangerous impulses
