You should not worry too much about confiding in friends although I understand your concern. If they have not said anything then it may not bother them that you confide in them. If they have said that it is a problem then you know that is a problem. I would choose one or two that are the closest to you. As far as seeing a professional, unless you are a new patient you shouldn't have to wait this length of time. You may have to consider going somewhere else. Different facilities have different rules. I would just do my research before I wait that amount of time. Consider finding a practice that has therapists avialable.
