Most workplace insurance covers psychologist and counselling visits. Check into your policy coverage and make an appointment to see a registered counselling psychologist. They can help make sense of the jumbled hot mess in your head and help with additional referrals if needed. You don't need to do this alone.Supercooled wrote: ↑Jun 8th, 2018 1:15 amEvery day when I wake up. Its like Peter Gibbons said, every new day is worse than the last day.
I tried seeking help through my work place programs but they never responded to my email. I have trouble articulating my thoughts through verbal communication because in my head I have so many things to express but they're all jumbled together so it's a hot mess.

Did anyone hear back from the OP? I hope things are better!Poppwl wrote: ↑Aug 3rd, 2018 4:14 amOP, how are you feeling now? Do you remember what happened two months ago that made you feel the way you did? Have you had a tougher day since that day? If you could redo that day from two months ago, how would you approach it differently.
I'm glad you had time out of your day to say you were not OK. It didn't take that much time. Your post was very short.

Beige Toyota, I appreciate and endorse the DIY sentiment of your advice, but I know many people, myself included, who have been helped immensely by Mental Health professionals. I don't think being a professional in that field makes you immune to having mental health issues or messy lives yourself. The ones who are good at their jobs excel at it, even if their own lives are messy and they can't objectively see or solve thier own issues. As an example, my family knows a world renowned cardiac surgeon (a part of our extended family) who performs life saving surgeries. Guess how many cholesterol-related issues he has himself? Plenty! At one point, his diabetes was so bad he nearly lost vision in one eye. Yet he is brilliant at what he does. The whole western paradigm of "you have to be 100% yourself before you can help others" is a weird lie that's perprtuated by Lululemon bags and the wellness industry... (if you don't make people believe this idea of making yourself a 100% well first, then they won't buy your products... anyway, I am going off on a tangent)BiegeToyota wrote: ↑Aug 12th, 2018 9:59 pmI am so much against mental help "professionals". Before you put your life in their hands, you should be able to ask them about their lives. Most of these people are even more messed up than their patients.
.....but at least I didn't rely on the pills to get myself out of it.
