You are a wonderful person who has been engaged in a private battle with your mental health. You have tried to find solutions on your own but you're at the point where you know that you need more. While you may be hesitant about medications, it would help if you could speak to someone who would listen to you, try to really understand you and who would work to build a relationship with you so that you could really feel comfortable. Someone who understands the importance of medication and is therapeutic. You want to be a partner in your care and you deserve to know that your medication provider is really checked into you.

Reaching out to a doctor is something you've been considering for a while now. Irrational thoughts, overthinking, and anxiety have plagued you for some time. Before, you were able to push through and try to ignore it, but now it seems like your gut is telling you it's time to get some help. Feeling irritable, worried, and overwhelmed has taken its toll. It's getting harder to be patient with your kids and husband, and it's even harder to do well at work. Self-doubt feels like a constant companion. All that stuff about self-care? Yeah, right. All you feel capable of is hiding away, crying, and hoping your problems go away.
