If you needed to seek professional help, would you be able to admit that you needed help and seek that help? Do you know where you would go to for that help?
There are places that you can start that you may not even know offered that type of help. Many employers now offer Employee Assistance Program (EAP), where you can get help needed for different items depending on your employer's offering, and one of those things would be to speak to a psychiatrist.
I would admit that I was once in need of those services and took full advantage of my 3 sessions offered to me. I still remember the phone call made to request services and the brief screening that took place; wanting to know if I was in danger of harming myself. While I was not in danger of harming myself, I was in danger of having a complete and total breakdown. Talking to someone that knew nothing about me personally that could listen to what I had to say from a removed POV; helped me to see that I was more important than the marriage I was trying to save at the time; or the job that was draining me mentally. I would go home and take out my anger on my kids verbally. I was angry all the time. I was ready to destruct!
But I was able to realize that I needed to get help, seek it, and take the information given to me. This is not something that most people like to talk about, but I hope and pray if anyone of you ever needs to get help that you would know where to get it from. Start with your employer, or the county to see what is available in your area.
