I'm scared! Should I open up to him about how I'm feeling and the od's?
I've never seen this particular pdoc before so my anxiety is high
I seem to go into a bad place when I go to see them

Hope you get someone nice who is easy to talk to. It is worth noting down things - I know when I am anxious I forget what I want to say, usually something important. If you tell him everything you give him the best chance to think of ways to help you. Xxx

Sparkly you need to tell him suicidal thoughts and voices, very important. Why go if you won't let him help?

Purple Butterfly please don't cancel.

I'm just worried that's all x I'm sure when I get in there I'll either spill it all out or clam up and say nothing!

To both of you, why not try and tell them everything, give a chance you may get help you need. If they are rubbish (as happens) you've lost nothing. But sometimes they can actually help. Xxx

I get very anxious about going too. Just think you'll be on your way home in a couple of hours.

If you don't go you will still be suffering and eventually you will be back in this same position and have to go through it anyway.

I have to cancel I can't handle this pressure
Isn't that part of why you need to see him?, because your ability to cope and function daily is being effected so adversely? All the more reason to see him.
