Hi everybody! I'm Mimi, and I'm just a 18 y.o. kid from Spain. Lately everything's been starting to fall appart. I'm overreacting to everything and I feel like the most lonely human ever, just as if I hit puberty 6 years late.
I've got a lot of rantings about myself (low self-esteem, hypochondriasis, possible social anxiety and who-knows-what-else) but I believe an introduction is not the place for them. My biggest problem is that I've never seen a psychologist or a psychiatrist in my life. When I was little I thought people would laugh at me and now I'm just too afraid of what could they tell me, even if I know it's what I should and I don't know how to even approach the topic with my parents.

Hi Mimi and :welcome: among us. I'm not sure how things are in Spain, but can't you go and see your GP, talk things over with him/her, possibly get a diagnosis, and then bring it up with your parents? If you're really scared of how to start the conversation with them maybe you could leave some leaflets around the house, about your condition that they'll find, that way they might approach the subject with you? I don't know, just some thoughts/ideas. Good luck either way, and hope all goes well for you. :hug: xxxxx

:welcome:Mimi,

Whatever you are suffering from, anxiety, depression,low self esteem, fear of being ill, you can take your time before discussing it with a doctor or your parents.The important thing is to know what you are dealing with and how to go about sorting it out.a doctor is best placed to help you know this.Your parents don't need to know if you are 18 or over and think you feel better with them not knowing you don't have to tell them.Or if you do need to tell them try what mami suggests and leave leaflets around for them to find.

I am glad you have found the forum I hope you find it helpful and supportive.Nikitax
