When should I call the doctor?

It’s normal to feel uncomfortable during therapy because it can be painful to explore negative emotions, fears and past experiences. If your symptoms get worse or you experience increases anxiety or depression, contact your doctor right away. Get help immediately if you have thoughts of suicide or if you’re thinking about harming yourself or others.
