Re: Will my doctor give me meds?
Your age doesn't help your cause, but hopefully he will understand where you are coming from. If you show that you are a sensitive and shy, reserved individual, he will most likely throw out any worries about you trying to abuse his scripts. Just don't be surprised if he starts you on an SSRI. It's almost standard procedure, which is a pity, but you gotta deal with it. Or you can ask for meds such as benzos/beta-blockers, but make sure you're informed, and make sure you don't come off as needy or drug-seeking.
