Mental illness isn't defined as one weird thing, for example hearing noises when there's nothing there. I'm in no way opposed to self-diagnoses, but if I were you I wouldn't worry too much about these incidents. Being mentally ill usually comes with emotional and psychological impacts. If you were waking up every night with feelings of panic, helplessness, and crippling anxiety because of these noises, I'd understand. As I understand it, however, I don't believe anyone would diagnose you with anything. In short, from the information I am given, it doesn't appear to me that you have any mental illness to speak of. Of course perhaps you do, and I just haven't heard the full of it. That's my two cents anyway.

I have experienced this too and I'm almost 100% sure this is what you're describing

hey yeah I've had extensive group therapy!!! (mostly because I was in day treatment programs :/ but I did do one voluntarily that was like a skills group)

I think it can be beneficial. Especially if you're not in day treatment/ other forced "no contact outside of treatment" types. Skills groups are good, and you don't necessarily have to be able to actually get along with the other members.

It's like a solid 6/10, I got to do some cool stuff and learn some shit.

OMFG GROUP THERAPY THE MEMORIES IM CRYIN THIS IS GREAT
um ok so I've been to a process group and also a dbt group and in general they are DIFFERENT!!!! process I thought was fun because it was just us ranting about our lives and there was a lot of arts and crafts and screaming and drama but it was kinda fun. also biased because I met my first girlfriend at a therapy group (pro tip: therapists dont like it when your fellow therapy patient is your lesbian lover). dbt group is more skills based and it can be tedious, but in the end the people that are there with you make it or break it. My advice is to always bring tea or coffee if it's an evening group, eat beforehand, try to be as kind as possible to your fellow group members, and even if the leaders are being super therapissy and annoying, at least try and absorb the bs they're throwing atchu. maybe its not bs who knows.

also give opposite action a chance! it's a dbt thing and it sounds awful and terrible at first but it can be useful so hang on to that lesson.

hi how do i go to a therapist w/o my parents knowing and also how do i explain to a therapist that idk if anything is wrong i just wanna know for sure if i'm being a baby or if i will stabilize more as i get older or if i need some lowkey meds?

i'm turning 18 in fourish months so that'll help.

i think i'm too immature atm because i'm a lot better than i used to be (i think), but at the same time i could just be reflecting my mom b/c she doesn't have very high opinions of ppl who take meds. So yeah, i wanna have like a check-up like you do with physicals? But i can't ask my family how to set an appointment up, obviously. Pointers?

yeah when i went to the mental hospital i had to do process and dbt groups and they were good so i think i would maybe like it, im assuming the leaders r like that everywhere lol like u said. also yea my gf was in the hospital in the same time as me and it was Bad .... and ofc some of it will b bs but i hope it's ok!

Same! I don't like process groups as much because I'd rather have the structure of working on like improving skills haha, process groups are more uncomfortable
