Is therapy worth it?

I know therapy can add up in your bank account, and I'm hesitant about it because I'm not sure if it's right for me.

I've never been to therapy or counseling or anything, so I'm not sure how it all works, but I'm not interested in improving myself. I know stuff is wrong with me, and I want to know what that stuff is, but past that, i don't really care.

I guessss what I'm ...

Warning signs?

Three weeks in to therapy, I feel worse than before I went in. Nightmares, insomnia, anxiety, rumination that I did not have right before.

The therapist has asked me to talk through my trauma, but it feels like it is re-traumatizing me. He has offered no guidance or preparation for me going though this. His few comments include "I don't know what to say" and that certain psychotherapeutic theory is "s***". I saw him concealing ...

Mindset

Hi

How do you change your mindset, the way you think about yourself, after failing at practically everything there is to fail, which lead to excessive self-hate. I got to the point, where I subconsciously sabotage everything, as I do not believe I deserve anything good in my life.

I suffer extreme shyness, social fobia, anxiety, depression to some degree, loneliness... I am tired...

Primal Therapy

A friend recommended trying primal therapy in Santa Monica, CA. However, my current therapist and psychiatrist seem to think it's a laughable form of treatment that doesn't work. I was going to try it out to deal with PTSD symptoms related to BPD.

Anyone ever try this kind of therapy and what were the results? Is it too good to be true and just a non proven pseudoscience form of treatment?

EMDR Stress

EMDR has stirred up a lot of stuff the longer I've gone through it. There's some good in it, but there's also a lot of stress and weird "side effects." Some times after some sessions, particularly when discussing certain aspects of the past. This last one, really kind of shut my brain off. I've had a migraine since Friday. I got that same sort of weird "pull" and haze the last time Max kind of ...
