Catch 22-Social Anxiety - October 29th 2009, 08:22 AM

So I was diagnosed with depression by my sleep specialist (he used to work adolesent psych a few years ago) and he noticed that I probably also have social anxiety.I found a psychotherapy place that takes the health insurance I'm on and I've gotten a refferal from my sleep specialist (he's even willing to talk to them on the phone to discuss my sleep disorder)only problem is actually making an appointment.I've been trying to get my mom to call and at first she just kept delaying it but now she gets extremely pissed off at me and tells me to call myself which is like a slap in the face,I get panic attacks when I talk to people I don't know (somedays it gets so bad I can't even talk to some of my friends on the phone).I really need to go to the psychotherapist soon (my self-harm has gotten worse)but I can't make the appointment myself.Any advice?

You wonder why I never smile anymore,but with broken homes come broken smiles.

Has the acidic rain burned a hole so deep,that we don't care what's beneath our feet?

I'm a freak and my best friend is a pirate-ninja-dinosaur,what a unique friendship!

My heart is so numb,that I can't feel it breaking

i would suggest asking your mom why shes getting mad at you for asking for help, and if she still gets mad at you then ask a friend to make the call for you and if you don't feel comfortable with that then try writing down the information that you think the people your setting up the appointment with will ask. sometimes its easier to talk to people when you have what your gonna say preplanned. But i'm sure a friend would be more then willing to make the call for you. I hope this helps. Good luck
