Welcome to the forums and I'm really glad you posted about your thoughts, feelings and questions. You've come to the right place!
My question for you is WHO told you that you needed to see a psychologist?
If you had phoned me as a friend and said all you said in your first post then I don't think I'd say "You need to see a psychologist" but I would think you're feeling pretty anxious atm.
There's a book you may want to borrow from the Library and just have a read.
It's called "Anxiety" by Dr Mark Cross.
I bought it this year and it IS a really good read. I only think you should borrow it, not buy it though.
It's by a Dr who HAS Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and has lived with it possibly all his life, certainly early in his teens as, I believe he couldn't 'come out' and that must have been awful for him.
I don't have GAD so it was a bit over the top for me... I DO have anxiety but it's a different type.
I can't say at all that you have GAD or any other type of anxiety.
I'm more concerned about who told you to "see someone" and what your relationship is with this person. I'm saying this because someone said that to me about 30y ago, so I went! lol.
The psychologist was FAR more interested in seeing the person who TOLD me I needed psych help. As it turned out he saw her too and it the outcome was peculiarly interesting indeed.
IF you just upped and decided TO see a psych, mocha had brilliant advice for you about how to start and you may or may not need the sessions.
Welcome again to the forums and I really hope you feel supported in this safe and caring place.
