I was very skeptical of psychology and stuff - also, I didn't trust telling a stranger personal things about myself, but it got to the point where I literally had no one to turn to and it was all getting too much to handle by myself. I ended up scared and completely alone, with very bad depression and drinking and drug problems... I tried seeing a couple of different counsellors, and I think that is important - don't just give up if you don't like the first one you meet! It was a big step and it took a lot for me to do, but the lady I see now works well for me. It really can help you if you find someone you feel comfortable with.
