Hello there, yes I’m going through some hard stuff and what better way to talk about with someone than my friends on the internet!?
No but seriously, the reason to be sharing this journey is to inspire hope. I’m just like you and me, nothing special, nothing terribly different, just another human living their life. But sometimes life gets hard (for whatever reason) and you don’t really know what the right thing to do is, or what is ok to do. If you’re anything like me, you might be to proud to admit you need/want help.
So if you’re reading this, and there’s something you’re struggling with yourself, if it’s a small thing or a big thing, or not even sure if it is a thing, know that it’s okay.
Today I visited my GP before work, and she wrote me a Mental Health Plan and a referral to a psychologist. I have 10 free sessions as part of the healthcare system, then I can decide what I want to do from there. I’m going to call them today and see if they have an appointment for me on the weekend.
And so with a push and a few baby steps, we’re off to a start at least.
