You sound like you can really use some out patient help here. Continuous theropy IMHO is needed. You sound like you should be monitered more often with this. This pretty much corrilates with with a severe manic depression. Some do well with just medication. And there are those that need numerous theropy along with it. You need to seek a good theropist ASAP. Especially if you feel you could be a threat to yourself or others. That is serious and needs attention now.

Your only hurting yourself by not confiding in him. He can't treat what he does not know about you. Your going to have to open up so you can get the proper help. That's the only way. You need to have a well mind to have a well body.

Why would you be afraid to tell your therapist? That's the only way you can get better. Anyway, isn't that what you're paying him for? To hear your problems and make you better? You have the responsibility to be honest, and he has the responsibility to do everything in his power to make you better. That's how it works. You do your part, and you can hold him accountable for his part.

What kind of therapist are you seeing?
