Avoiding My Psychiatrist Because I Am Not Ready for Medicine

I’m in college and last year I saw the school counselor, who believed I had dissociative disorders, depression, and anxiety.

10 years ago when I was 21, I moved countries. I started studying here and I learned the language more or less, I even managed to write a thesis required for the diploma. Somewhere in between I have realized that I developed some sort of split personality. Somehow my native personality doesn’t translate in to my ‘English’ personality.
