  • Hi

    I'm sorry you are feeling in such a dark place.

    Yes you do need professional help but that does not necessarily mean you are terribly ill, just that you are struggling to cope with difficult feelings and that anxiety about needing help is making you drop even lower.

    Take courage and phone the local primary mental health care team - you can find them on google and in most areas you can refer yourself without even needing to see your GP. You just phone and say you are feeling bad and need to talk to the emergency worker so that someone will know you need help. Just talking for a few minutes may reduce your anxiety but even if it doesn't they are likely to offer you an assessment appointment. Then you will need support to cope with your anxiety whilst waiting until the appointment and we can all help support you during that time.

    Do phone, it only takes a moment and once you've done it then you can come back here and share your anxiety. Don't suffer on your own, if you are unable to talk with your family then you need someone else to talk with.
