I've been contemplating whether or not to seek professional help for my anxiety and depersonalisation issues. I've never had therapy or counselling before but I feel like it's time to find help as my bad days are becoming unbearable.
The only reason why I'm hesitant is because I feel like if I do speak with a professional it will make my feelings "real". I'm not sure how to explain it... I've been brushing my problems under the carpet and blaming my anxiety on poor diet and alcohol abuse and I never really thought I could be a person with mental health issues...
I just don't want to give my anxiety the attention it wants.
Can anyone advise ??
