Hello, I am new here and I hope to find out what is happening with my head.

I noticed I had symptoms of specific mental illnesses and sometimes all the symptoms ( quiet BPD ) which severely affected my life for the past years. I will not self diagnose but I do not want to see a therapist. Just like everyone, I don't want to be mentally ill and i fear I might be. I also fear I might get a bad diagnosis too.

All in all, I hope that chatting with people here will eventually convince me to open up about the matter and overcome my fear of therapy in order to get out of this position in my life where I know something is wrong but I don't want to correct it (causing it to persevere).

Thank you for reading/having me on the forum

I completely understand the fear of opening up or of being afraid of a diagnosis, even though i've kinda been the opposite where i wanted to know if i had things that needed to be diagnosed because it made me feel like what i was struggling through would than make more sense in what it actually is, but it is still very hard to put it out there, especially with family for me. So i understand your fears.

I hope you can find what you need from here though to help you move foward.
