When You Know You Need Help

I am someone who finds it difficult to admit when I need help. I guess I'm quite stubborn in that I like to think I can handle things on my own.

I recently went to the Doctors to talk about my low feelings, who suggested I either go on antidepressants (which I'd rather not) or try counselling.
She gave me a number to call for counselling, but I'm pretty terrified of calling and explaining to another person these thoughts I've been having. Most people have no idea, certainly not my family. I don't know why I'm writing this here, I guess I figure if I can write it here maybe I'll be able to call, it's just one more person then maybe I can make this go away.

I don't like burdening people but
I need help.

It's not getting any better in my head right now.


  1. Go and get help Hannah. I had anxiety and I was scared to get help but it's the best thing I've ever done. Xxxx

  2. I hope you are able to get help. Just talking about your troubles can really help. But don't be afraid to get on meds if you need them. There is nothing wrong with needing meds for depression...it's no different than me having to take meds for my thyroid every day.
