Sometimes painful memories, strong feelings and intrusive thoughts become too overwhelming to manage. When this happens, it's not unusual to feel anxious, low in mood or just aware of feeling "stuck". You might be thinking "what's happening to me", and with no apparent answer, this can make things can feel unpleasant, destabilised or even frightening. Or you might feel that something more specific, like a bereavement, relationship breakdown or traumatic experience have made life seem more of a struggle and less of a pleasure. This is often the point when we seek help from someone.
