Customer Question

Hello, I am 23 and suspecting a personality disorder in myself. I have struggled with myself since I can remember but I was hoping some day I will grow out of it. My problem is that now to be seen by doctor I would have to speak to him on the phone before he decides if he would need to see me or not and I don’t know how to explain what’s wrong as being depressed is only part of what’s going on, plus every time I wanted to reach for help I was to afraid to ask.
