Professional Help

It is vital to pursue the help you need. To fight those voices saying ‘you can do it – should be able to do it – by yourself’, or that ‘what you currently have is enough’.

I see a psychologist who helps me understand what is ‘normal’ in a very abnormal situation. I have been concerned that my sadness is leading me down a path of depression, but after today’s appointment, it turns out I’m normal.

Those closest to me cannot tell me if my reactions are normal. My husband knows me the best, but even he cannot be 100% certain that my reactions are healthy.

Reaching out for professional help is vital when you don’t know, or when you are not moving forward, or when life feels like it is too much.

Mental health is too important to try to manage alone. I’ll be back in 3 months for a check in.
