I really despise the hypocrisy of society. We're always encouraged to share our issues with psychiatrists/therapists, and yet nothing good ever comes out of it. I personally refuse to take any kind of medication for depression due to knowing their potential side-effects, and I was actually once threatened by my therapist, who stated that she would send me back to the mental hospital if I kept refusing to take these pills. And the funny thing is that I had just finished telling her just how awful my experience there was and how I left mentally scarred and even worse off than before.
These "mental health professionals" aren't any more qualified to "help" you than the people on /r/SuicideWatch. They all say and do the same bullshit anyway; giving you stereotypical and bullshit "advice" and then quickly giving up on you after they see that they're not easily making progress with your mental state. The only real difference there is is that they can attempt to shove countless medications down your throat and act like they will solve literally all of your problems. They put medications on way too high of a pedestal, treating them as if they're the end to all mental and physical conditions. And if they or the "professionals" who gave them to you don't notice any positive differences, then it's your fault, and not the latter for failing to understand their patients or lacking the understanding and patience that is beyond necessary for these kinds of situations. Mental health issues are complicated as all hell, as every single person is affected differently. But if they can't help you, then they just automatically reach the assumption that you're beyond help and just send you to some psych ward so you're temporarily (or permanently) taken out of their hands.
I remember being switched to therapist after therapist since all them realized that they couldn't actually help me, to the point where I've lost count from how many I've seen. I never talked to any of them enough to form any kind of connection to where I felt comfortable discussing issues that were more private and sensitive for me, as after a few sessions I was redirected to someone else who seemed just as bored and uncaring as the last.
The sad reality is that there is no "help" in this world, or at least not any that won't cause other problems or cost a ridiculous amount of money. You have to sacrifice important things or even potentially make your life worse just to even try to start feeling better, and I learned a long time ago that it's just not worth all the hoops you have to get through. Even if I did find medications that worked, I'd be practically chained to them and forced to rely on them everyday if I don't want to suffer from the symptoms of withdrawal. But that's what society wants. They want you to spend more and more money on these bullshit pills. We're nothing but their cash cow, and that's all we'll ever be. And then everybody gets all confused when people commit suicide, desperately attempting to blame literally anything or anyone else but themselves. Because if it's the therapist's fault, that'll only further discourage people to make appointments, and they'll start losing money, and they can't have that, can they?
