With severe anxiety and depression the last thing I wanted to do is reach out for help. I simply just want to say two weeks ago I did and I am so glad I did. It was completely out of my comfort zone. I isolate myself so I don’t burden those who are in my life. But something had to give or I was afraid I would just continue wanting to die.
Don’t get me wrong - I still feel awful inside. But the one thing that has changed is that I have a little hope now. NAMI offers something I never had before. People like me. Along with the education we get about our disease -we help each other.
Please, please, please - just make that one phone call to a NAMI center!! Just tell them how you are feeling. They get it. They will do everything possible to help. It’s free so the financial burden of psych treatment won’t be an issue.
I’m a very depressed, anxious person and have found myself in crippling hopelessness. I’ve been this way as long as I can remember. NAMI is offering that glimmer of hope I’ve never had before.
One call - that’s all it takes.
