The weekend of the 14-15th of July I had a little melt down.
For the first time I got to a place where I could feel just unhappy, regardless of limitations and lack of time for myself. I allowed myself to feel unhappy despite the prospect of exciting things to come. I allowed myself to feel…
It isn’t a pleasant experience. But it is at this place, right at the bottom of the pit, with no sense of optimism or ambition that I realised that I needed to get help.
The Tuesday following the weekend, I saw a doctor. Lovely doctor that allowed me to word what I am feeling. She looked at me and told me I am going to be okay and then went on to prescribe a couple of things that will holistically make me deal with the depression, anxiety and assist with weight management.
Cheers to the road ahead!
