I have never had issues with anxiety/depression. Once I finished nursing school and entered the real world and started my career is when I started to become triggered. I would like to say im pretty self-aware when it comes to noticing my faults and doing something about them. But as someone who takes care of other people, why have I become so hard on myself to seek my own treatment? It feels like defeat and that my problems are no where near comparable to the average person. I do not want to sit infront of the shrink about my daily life troubles or disturbances. So I sit home and dwell on the fact of my increasing feelings. I went to my primary doctor and he told me that I really need to seek help. I am scared. I dont want to go on meds. I dont want to burden someone else of my life issues. I hope soon enough I can make a change and step into the right direction and to feel better about myself for once.
