I’ve been struggling with my mental health for a couple years now and I’ve never really done anything about it because I’m a very private person and don’t like to let people see me upset/ emotional etc. I finally told a friend about how I’ve been feeling and she’s told me she thinks it’s a good idea to go to the doctors to talk about it. I want to go because they could potentially help me but my anxiety is just getting in the way. I know the nurse is nice but even calling the receptionist and explaining feels impossible. I’ve tried to book online but it doesn’t work and I just don’t think I can face talking to someone on the front desk about it. What would I even say? I feel stupid saying my friend has told me to get help because she thinks I have anxiety/ depression because then I think the doctor will rule them out straight away. I’m scared to talk to someone about it and then they tell me it’s all in my head and everybody feels this way. Anybody have any advice as to what to say or do?
