Question Need some advice - April 4th 2013, 01:25 AM

Hey guys,

So I have an appointment with my therapist tomorrow. I haven't talked with him for almost a month. In the past month my suicidal thoughts have become more frequent and more severe. My therapist doesn't know about them at all. I know I should talk about it with him and tell him, but I am kinda scared to.

Do you guys have any advice on how to go about telling a therapist?

Much appreciated!

I think you should just open up and be honest with him.
He is a therapist, so he is used to and it is his job to hear and deal with this stuff.
Maybe you could write down your feelings in a diary to show him, if that would make it easier,
hope this helps,
Mimi

Hi, Gabi.

I'm really happy you wanna tell your therapist about this. It's such a great idea to reach out and I'm glad you're wanting to do that. You've made a brave and big step. Instead of telling him verbally, you could write it on a note what you wanted to tell him and give that to him to make it easier. Or a text.

Hope it goes well! Good luck. I'm here if you need someone to talk to.

Stay Strong <3

Thank you guys! I'm so scared to talk about it. Hopefully I'll actually be able to do it.

I will probably try writing it out on my phone if I can. Just the idea of bringing it up scares me though.

Thanks for the help!

Being scared is normal. I think it's difficult for anyone to talk about these things. I hope you can talk about it with him.

Thank you so much. I was able to do it. I was shaking the whole time and it took me like 10 minutes to form the words, but I got it out and was able to talk about it.

Thank you guys so much for the advice!!!
