btw I saw what you wrote about crisis and it's nothing to be embarrassed about. When I was in outpatient, I learned that quite a few people do that. I might try it at some point because therapy sucks, lol.
St. John's Wort is a natural herb that can be purchased at a health store or online, so no, there likely are no side effects. It just boosts your mood. I have a friend who has social anxiety who found it helpful.
Thanks for your comment about crisis. Yes therapy is basically a joke. The crisis lines are good though. And they're free, so there's nothing to lose.
