Hi I'm Emilee. I live in Washington state and have been suffering from anxiety and depression since I was about 8 or 9. I didn't get help until I was severely depressed and finally admitted I had a problem. I was 25. I'm now 29, and have been doing well for months...until a few days ago. When I get overwhelmed with life (good or bad), I can feel my mental illnesses creeping up on me. A trigger of mine sent me spiraling into a total breakdown yesterday. I am waiting for a call back to make an appt with a therapist. I called into work today and feel bad about it. I just don't want to push myself and have another breakdown at work.
