How to Know it’s Time for Help

 

If you find yourself missing out on things you used to enjoy, it’s time to get help. Another example is if you find your relationships changing. Maybe it’s simply you becoming more paranoid or worried about things you know you shouldn’t rationally be anxious about. It could also be that the people around you that love you are increasingly voicing their concern for you. If you are self-medicating with drugs or alcohol to cope with your anxiety, this is a huge warning sign that you need to see a professional.

The important thing to remember is that any time you go to counseling for help, you are never judged. If you feel like something is off with yourself, it is okay to want to get help. There will not be a time where a clinician says to you, “I think you’re wasting your time, you don’t need to be here.”

  • Holistic Medicine- Reiki, diet change or herbal remedies have anecdotes that say to have helped, but make sure you are cautious and research before you starting diving into the natural route and taking things you may not need
