Hoping to find a place where I can speak openly about various things without feeling even worse or getting the standard responses about suckin it up or just go have a beer.

I've been diagnosed with major depressive disorder panic disorder and agoraphobia. I used to see a therapist but they always seemed to want to tell me what I was experiencing without actually listening to what I was saying so I stopped. I felt I still need to talk regardless of those experiences so I'll try this out.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I am sorry your therapist was unhelpful. There are some wonderful therapists out there who can make the world of difference. I hope in time you will try therapy again.
