Ok, so I have depression, and whatnot...Like 3 weeks ago I ended up in the emergency room for overdose, and since then everything has basically gone back to normal. I got off the antidepressants I was taking...and I really dont want to go to therapy anymore, I just feel that I dont want to affect others with my issues. My mom is making me go to therapy, but I just cant bring myslef to talk, especially since I have a phobia of emotion basically and I get panic attacks when I start to share my thoughts with others. My mom keeps using the arguement that I just tried to kill myself, and I need therapy, but im just not ready to open up,and im pretty safe, whats a good arguement to make with my therapist, mom, and psychiatrist, that wont make me sound in denial that I am perfect, and I know it?

Ah jaes, not again... How many times are you going to go through this until you let them help you? If you want to stop affecting others with your issues, then you have to stop having issues... And the only way to do that is by getting better... It is highly unlikely you're going to convince your psychiatrist or your therapist that you are ok on your own right now. I wouldnt let a patient who recently overdosed out of my sight for quite a while... If you have a problem expressing emotions, then maybe that's the first thing you need to work on in therapy... this cycle is not going to end until you just let them help you... and they cant until you're willing to get help... You're not the only person in the world who has ever felt this bad. But people do get better. They just have to allow others to help them.

You are in the position now similar to an alcoholic or junkie who has just came from rehab and cab easily use or drink again.
You need to continue therapy, 1st you need to find a therapist who can work with regarding the emotional phobia of talking about your feelings and dealing with the panic attacks that occur with revealing inner feelings. You need to be on your mpod stabilizers again, to keep the seratonin levels regular.
You could "use" again very easily at this point. Your mother loves you and wants to see you happy. Do you realize that she is still praying thanks for allowing you to live 3 weeks ago. Do you know what it would do to her if you slipped to that point again, but this time you won??? A mother should not have to bury their child, it just isn't the way it is supposed to be!!
Return to your medication and start looking for a therapist who has practice in dealing with your type of issues. You'll be amaz2d. Many therapists have training in these types of problems!!
Good luck, please get back on the antidepressants and lett them have a chance to work

Counseling how to ask???
ANSWER #4 of 4

you need to dig deeper to the root of what's causing you to feel depressed that you even tried to kill yourself. I understand your mom's view point of making you seek help with a therepist, and I think it will be wise for you to do so (the mere fact that you mentioned "kill yourself", "phobia" and "panic attacks"). a therapist might help you but you also need to help yourself if you want to make it better for you.
