I've had some long standing problems with my mental health. Because of this, I suspect that I have some sort of mood disorder or psychological problem that needs to be resolved.
I've gone through long sporadic bouts of depression since I've been about 10 years old.
I at the very least have some serious social anxiety, which to be honest is very reminiscent of Selective Mutism. I am not by any means comfortable around any of my peers, and though I can speak, I feel incredibly isolated and alone, as even something as simple as trying to do work in groups with minimal talking is like pulling teeth.
I filled out this "My Mood Monitor" online screening test, which seems to be somewhat reputable...
(Validated from a research team at the University of North Carolina, and the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) according to a quick look on wikipedia)
According to it I have a 90% chance of having depression and/or a 90% chance of having an anxiety disorder.
Now, I hate to base this off an online test, but I have serious trust issues and the only way I can get myself to go to for help is an anonymous source.
I'm on edge and irritable all the time, and when I'm not I'm a space cadet lost in the dark reaches of the void.
I'm tired of feeling like I'm a prisoner in my own mind.
The idea of getting help in person is absolutely mortifying to me, but obviously something needs to be done. This isn't healthy.
What course of action should I take about trying to get a proper diagnosis, and maybe a little relief?
