I need to see a therapist. I’ve been dealing with depression for most of my life (along with anxiety) I seem to have all the classic symptoms of ADD, and I have been abusing alcohol.
I’ve decided with help from my partner to get professional help. I’ve been on anti-depressants but stopped seeing a therapist about 4 years ago. I think I did better when I did see one. So here I am, needing to call and make an appointment. A friend of mine told me of a good one just a few blocks away from me. I need to do this but I can’t pick up the phone. I’ve been staring at the damn thing for 8 hours.
I don’t know why my heart pounds everytime I think I’m ready to call and why I’m such a coward. It’s not as though I’m ashamed to call, I just hate that first call to a new therapist’s office.
Help me pick up the phone!
