I was on the fence because she made it known that I would have to sit down with my parents and talk about it with them to schedule the visit. It was different from what I expected. I assumed that when I got there, the therapist would basically dismiss me, but I was wrong. Dr. Wells made me feel comfortable and asked me questions that made me better understand what I was going through. She didn’t outright judge me for how I felt, nor did she make me feel small. I enjoyed sitting down and having someone listen to my problems. Then she told me her preliminary diagnosis from what she heard from me. I can honestly say that I was not surprised, which is why I wasn’t angry. Sometimes, when you expect the answer to come, it still weighs on you because, even though you know it will come, it evokes a feeling deep inside your subconscious. I don’t regret seeing Dr. Wells, and I don’t regret seeking help. This is a step I took, which I hope leads to a better me.
