I just did probably the hardest thing I've had to do recently.

I've been feeling pretty depressed and I've started having a hard time getting out of my apartment again (while at the same time being desperate to be not in my apartment), so I did the thing. I contacted my doctor to see if we could get me in to see her earlier than the 28th, and I contacted my social worker type lady and was super upfront- probably the most upfront I have ever been with them- and asked her for help too. Really called on the little support structure I have left


im not usually a big pray guy but some prayers or good thoughts my way would be really great. im trying really hard and its just getting too much i feel

Seeking professional help can be scary and can even feel overwhelming. It must have been difficult for you. I hope you will soon be able to work through your challenges.

You can be very very proud of yourself @dabearwiffdasammich

Asking for help is the hardest step of it all. So well done.
Being honest is incredibly hard but it's the only solution to the illness.

Hiding under the blanket can seem like a better option to speaking to someone about your troubles but the more you hide the more you feel guilty and the fear only grows.

So you've given fear a big tight slap by refusing to cave in and you've done the right thing contacting your support system. It is very important to be supported in times like these. I will definitely pray for your recovery.
