Post Hi tolerance to love.

I just was carving around the web and found this site:

thenicestplaceontheinter.net

In short, it's about love. Complete strangers trying to make you feel better, sending tons of hugs, love... the whole idea is so alien to me, I don't understand why would they do that [for me]? I was just thinking about it. I guess I do have a self-esteem problem, or maybe I'm just too cynical but I can't understand, those videos make me feel bad, a guy incapable of feeling love, to accept the love that people are willing to give him. Just thinking out loud. Thoughts?

I'm sorry you're feeling that way. Are you seeing a therapist? What about a pdoc? Maybe a med review is in order. I noticed you are fairly new to the forum. Welcome. You'll find lots of support here. I don't have specific thoughts on whether you have a self-esteem problem or are cynical but I wanted to lend you my support and let you know I'm thinking of you....

Hello & Welcome, Lowpoint.

Did your GP do or order any tests? Did he tell you to go to a psychologist only on the basis of listening to an account of your symptoms? To be sure, your symptoms could be indicative of depression, but it would be nice to rule out other possibilities.

Is your self-esteem problem recent? (Feel free to ignore the questions.)

Please make yourself at home here.

Wow. I'm really sorry, Rohag. I'm finally learning how to use web forums so I didn't see your reply. I still don't get the notification system, though.

Well, yes. He first prescribed me some vitamins and stuff because I'm really skinny and weak (BMI: 17~) and then he sent me urine and stood tests, just standard procedure I guess because I've been feeling really really tired and my atention is fairly bad. He wrote: "Adynamia. Asthenia. Psychological evaluation a few years ago. He has not been evaluated for control." And so on.
But I haven't gone yet. Too scared.

To be fair, I found a therapist online and we're having our first meeting tomorrow afternoon. Online as well. Too paranoid. We'll see how it goes.

I send complete strangers love because I believe we are all connected, and that we all need love in order to be loving.
