I'm not afraid to go so much as I'm afraid of being misdiagnosed.
I'm afraid of being misdiagnosed because I cannot foresee myself sharing everything with the doctor. I cannot see myself telling him/her about the
thoughts I am having. I believe that would start more drama that I don't feel like dealing with.
But lets say I'm not misdiagnosed, but I don't truly believe what the doctor said is correct. Now I have to decide whether to take the
prescriptions, with the possibility of it being a misguided diagnosis, or not take the prescriptions and end up being wrong and paying for not doing
so down the road.
I'm only 20 years old and am nowhere near mentally mature, in my opinion, so for me, this is a tough balancing of the pros and cons of getting down
to what the problem is or may be. I simply don't have the sense to properly think out how to proceed with this.
I have lived 20 years of absolutely no serious health issues, and very rarely getting sick. So I guess you could say I haven't been conditioned on
how exactly to deal with properly, something that could
Thats my dilemma. Thats why I even shared this to begin with; I hate talking about myself and sharing personal emotions, even to family, so I was
hoping to maybe read something that would trigger some common sense in me on how to best deal with this. I'm very appreciative of everyone's advice
and general care to even bother posting, but so far the "just go to the doctor" recommendation hasn't settled as the most sound and comfortable
decision, and hasn't made the appearance of being "the" right decision to make.
Its really unnecessary to drag this out and make no progress, and just continuously talk about it while taking no action, but I guess the skeptic
inside of me is convincing me enough that simply going to the doctor isn't going to fix all of the problems.
