So, basically, I have Social Anxiety. I have taken many tests, and have been told by my doctor that I do. She even recommended a therapist to me. I am a freshman in high school, so it's a bit stressful, which adds on to the general anxiety I have as well. I've told my mom this many times and she even looked up what Social Anxiety was, and I had all symptoms. But even after all this, she refuses to admit that I have it and refuses to take me to my recommended therapist. I somewhat feel as if she doesn't want to believe I do because my older brother, who is 31 has ADHD, and my older sister, who is around 28-29, is bipolar. But I want her to realize that I do have this mental disorder and I need someone to talk to, instead of the getting to same response of, "Get over it" or "You're just being dramatic". I also want her to know this because she always says that we "Never have time" to go to a therapist, but my stepfather has a very short work schedule, so he could always take me.
