Has anyone tried phone therapy because you have a hard time opening up and found it easier to be honest over the phone vs in person?

Thanks for the responses. Some context - I’ve had bad experiences with therapy as a child and in college where I never felt like I got anything from it because I couldn’t force myself to lose the “mask”. I feel confident the same thing will happen with conventional therapy as an adult, so I’m considering phone options as a way to potentially lessen the instinctive masking that prevents me from opening up

I find the opposite to be true, but do what works for you!

I’ve tried it. But I liked in person better. I just couldn’t make an in person appt. work due to travel. That said, I understand why some people might feel more comfortable over the phone. Try and see what feels best for you!

I finally got diagnosed with ADD, inattentive type, at 28 years old. I’ve known I had depression and anxiety for years, but the symptoms and treatment never added up. It took WFH in a pandemic to realize maybe I had ADD, and still months of being dismissed and made to feel like I was crazy before I found a doctor to administer the MMPI. I feel validated, finally, but I can’t help feeling grief too over so much lost potential and unnecessary failure, especially in law school and my career.

Hi Guys,

I don’t think that most people they find in the lake went in it willingly. Water makes it too easy to cover up murders. Washes away evidence. But it’s dismissed because most people they found had also been drinking. But people just disappearing miles away from the Lake don’t just fall in it. Yes, suicide happens. But many of these cases show zero signs of anything like that. The constant MO is being out with friends having fun. The friend vanishes. Then is found in the lake weeks later.
