I have never been one to admit I need help, not to my family, nor my friends. I’ve always been the one to be a rock for everyone, the strong one, the confidant.
As of late, however, it has been a countless battle with emotion. Every head pop is an example of me losing my mind, falling apart into uncontrollable anger and sadness.
For what reason, no idea. I looked at every head pop as a doomsday clock scenario. Just waiting to self-destruct. I never thought I could lean on the people who needed me the most, but it turns out I could.
It is never easy to admit that something is wrong. You feel worthless, judged, crazy, and so many other emotions. Taking that first step was the hardest to help me cope with mental illness.
After doing so, every step after gots a little bit easier. It has taken months to find the right medication, to find the right counselor, the right coping mechanisms that have somewhat helped me personally.
With a support group of friends and family, it has gotten easier. Just wish there was a support group in my city or county which could make it just a little bit easier. I found out it is okay to have bad days, everyone does. It is okay to ask for help.
Depression has been one of the hardest battles I’ve ever dealt with. It has taught me that I need to focus on myself instead of everyone else sometimes.
