I am seeing a counselor in the morning. I am nervous. I am going to get help with family problems, relationship (boyfriend), anger (I can get really heated at times). I am not sure how effective counseling is and I am really hesitant about getting on meds if that is something the counselor wants me to do. I think I have anxiety and maybe depression, its either one or the other but I will leave that up for the doc. The thing about taking meds is that I dont want to have to rely on them for years or even at all. I feel like I want to be able to control these issues myself. Am I wrong for thinking that?
