Speed Dial

I’ve been on a downward spiral this week. 

I have been consumed by thoughts of suicide and feelings of hopelessness and guilt; literally every waking moment.

I feel like such a failure. 

I feel helpless. 

Today I felt unsafe.

I reached out to my therapist for support. 

I am always hesitant to do so because I worry that I am truly bothering her. 

In my heart though I know that’s just my anxiety talking smack to me.

I see her on a weekly basis and she will often remind me that if ever I need to reach out to her at anytime in between our sessions that she will always be here for me in whatever capacity she can; and oh ya, she also reminds me that I am most definitely not a bother either.

Having a professional who is always in your corner, who believes in you and who offers you a safe, judgment-free space to talk through or help you cope with whatever life challenges you may be experiencing is truly a blessing. 

*If you are in crisis or in need of immediate support and do not have access to care right away please reach out to a helpline or go to your nearest emergency room.*
