We all have choices in our lives . Sometimes life can be extremely difficult and at times we can feel that we were giving a very raw deal in life. No matter our situation we can choose to sink or swim. We also have to remember we are not alone. Most people in their lives carry a lot of pain and troubles without doing any thing about it witch can cause a lot of illnesses.
Mental Health Issues can lead to a great many problems – sadness, loneliness, fallout with society, family and friends. Our bodies and mind cancrash just like we have sunk to the bottom of no where. It can be like we have just given up on life and our selves .
It can be very hard to accept that our bodies and minds are not functioning the way we would like them to. We also may not want our boss or family and friends to know at this stage we have to try and help our selves.
If we do not the situation will deteriorate It would be much better to know that you are not alone. You can try pick up the phone to a number of help lines who can speak to you in confidence it would also be wise to go see your General Practitioner who will aces you perhaps recommend counseling or medication or if needed refer you to a psychiatrist some people may feel up set about this but again you must remember that you are not on your own the psychiatrist is very experienced and will offer you a lot of options so that you can recover.
