Asking questions to doctors

This isn't really a social phobia related question, I think.

I've been given a new kind of painkiller, which I'm very happy about. I asked specifically to try something else because I'm in a lot of pain which prevents me from having a good quality of life and also keeps me up many nights and the painkillers I'm using now aren't working very well.

Saying cognitive statments in a safe place?

My story’s quite a long one. I’m a 23 year old guy who’s been struggling with some things over the last couple of years.

During my fourth year at med school, which is now 2 years ago, I had a mental breakdown. I felt very exhausted and couldn’t find the motivation to study for my exams anymore, which was a big contrast to the years before. I consistently rank among the top of ...
