Sometimes parents don’t take us seriously:
My social anxiety has gotten so much worse in the last year I don’t even think I can bare it anymore. Along side most likely depression and OCD I’m just chalk full of problems that need someone to fix. How can I tell my mom I want to see a therapist? I should say that I’m 15 and my parents are for lack of a better word cheap, and the way I see it in my head it’s going to go like this, I say “Mom can I see a therapist?” Then she would say, “why your fine!? (Her voice making her seem angry) oh why do you need a therapist there are more important problems in the world to figure out first.” And she would never mention it again until I did. And I would never end up going and trying to get help. Maybe there is no reason and it is only a waste of money I don’t know. But I need help to convince her. Any suggestions?
