Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You don't have to be so worried or 'prepare' yourself to see a psychiatrist. It's best to be yourself and answer whatever comes to your mind. Psychiatrists are well-trained to deal with people of different age groups and varied mental make-ups. So, please consult a psychiatrist without any hesitations.

Wish you all the best.

Dont even try to anything special that will make the situation more difficult for the psychiatrist. We just want your natural, reflex answer. Any prepared answer can lead us to a wrong diagnosis. Just keep in mind during answering never told a lie. A small difference in answer can be very big in diagnosis. That will ultimately harm you.

And about your 1st question, I can assure you you need not to be worried about it if you go to a good psychiatrist. He will ask the required question and pull out the effective answer from you.

So dont worry just go to a good psychiatrist.
Best of luck.
