Default I want to go to therapy

Going to therapy has been one of the things I can't seem to go to. I don't want to go to the trouble of finding the right therapist for me, because I hate being told I'm going to do something great or I'm holding myself back or that I could try stepping out of my comfort zone. Another thing is that I don't need be reassured that everything is fine. I'm not even sure I know what I want out of therapy...

The one thing that seems to be bugging me to go, is to try medication. Even with that, I can't seem to bring myself to go. 2 or 3 yrs ago, I tried going to a guidance counselor and she recommended me to a public hospital therapist (is that even correct? she did that because i didn't want to go somewhere expensive) and I chickened out.

I'm still dependent on my aunt, financially, and I don't want her to be worried or spend more on me. Maybe if I manage to get a job and save up a bit, I'd probably force myself to go to one.

maybe. idk.

If you just want meds, why not just go to your PCP?

We don't have those here, locally. The best next thing is a therapist and I've been told they don't just give meds without having appointments on a regular basis.

Maybe if you tell the therapist what you told us?

Hey just if it makes you feel better, in my own experiences with a therapist, they dont push things unless you want to talk about them. The main struggle is finding a therapist you connect to.... um yeah feel free to ignore me
