Anonymous: What if for certain reasons I can't go to a well-educated psychologist? I'm completely sure I have SAD, though.
That’s totally understandable. My thing with self-diagnosing is that it’s incredibly unhealthy for a lot of people, especially people on Tumblr.
If you think you have a disorder, then acknowledge what’s wrong and focus on your recovery more than having it written on a piece of paper.
Whether you have a disorder or not, you have (serious, I assume) problems with anxiety, and it’s important that you focus your attention on getting better, in my opinion.
That being said, I know I myself am very attached to having labels like depressed, socially anxious, etc. Not because it’s really cool or the new black or whatever, but it comforts me and reassures me of my poor mental health, so that I believe there’s something actually wrong (and there is!)
So, there are two sides to this really, but I hope you understand what I am saying! u_u
Best of luck.
