The main cause of my depression is not being able to find love easily. All of these people I meet are straight, some find gays disgusting or just uncomfortable. Some are okay with it. My uncle committed suicide in the 90s because he was gay. I guess it just depends where you live. It's harder to find that special someone. I was raised in a conservative family so that's why I'm still in the closet. I was thinking of going to a psychiatrist for my depression. I also get social anxiety in public as well so I'm just a fucking mess.
I mean would meds even work? Antidepressants or anti anxiety or whatever the fuck I'll just take anything to get out of this hole
Therapist is a good idea if you can afford it. It sounds like your situation is the problem, so I'm not sure if meds/a psychiatrist is a good idea. Pills will (at best) fix chemical imbalances in your brain, but they can't magically make your life better. Therapist on the other hand will help you get your shit together.
If you're closeted and in a horrible conservative area you just need to gtfo. It's hard to do but it's worth it. Life is so much better in a liberal area, it's night and day. If you stay there it's like living in a war zone, you're always on guard and about to get rekt by someone or other.
Just move somewhere better, to a more accepting place
Meds don't really do much from my experiences, but are worth a shot
Therapy is excellent if you pair up with a good psychologist you find caring
Take care, anon :3
I'm from AZ so it's not entirely conservative but you can get the point that there is a lot of Spanish people here and they believe in that gay is sin bullshit because of Catholicism.
I want to move, but money. So the best I have is a psychiatrist OR a therapist. I never experienced any of these before but I hope that I'll get better from it
