Well, I’ve officially been referred by a campus doctor to a psychiatrist. Now all I can do is wait for the call from the student health centre asking me to schedule an appointment.
The doctor is a really nice dude, but he is pushing a couple of points that I don’t really agree with, and I just need to rant a bit about that.

Hi there! I think that your feelings and understanding is completely reasonable. Asexuality is a real thing and the fact that you may have anxiety or other mental health concerns to deal with doesn’t invalidate that. greenchestnuts provided a link to some advice on dealing with therapists and I hope you find that helpful. Maybe you can take some resources on asexuality when you meet with the psychiatrist again. Good luck!
