VLinn from our forum asked the following question: "I was wondering if any of you were ever afraid to go to a therapist. I'm realizing that I probably need one but I'm too scared. I feel like my situation is too crazy to be dealt with. Maybe not crazy but I'd be embarrassed to release what I would need to talk about. Or that they personally wouldn't agree with certain choices I've made. I'm a very private person I think because it's hard for me to talk about things for fear people will think I'm weird--even close friends or family. But I'm now thinking that what I need to overcome may need help from a 3rd party. I was hoping someone could tell me how they got over being scared of talking to a professional. Any thoughts, advice, or ideas would be helpful."
