I finally found the courage to seek help for my depression and anxiety. I start group therapy tomorrow and will attend all day sessions 3 days a week. On one hand I am relieved to finally be getting some help and to know that I am not alone but on the other hand I am horribly afraid and my anxiety is very high right now. Part of me wants to call and cancel and stay in my house where I am safe. I know though that this is not the answer. I want to be able to go to the park with my kids, take them to parades and carnivals. I tired of feeling so bad all the time and being so afraid of everything. I can't even go to the store without an anxiety attack. So I will do this. I will stick with it. I could look at it as adding in the mental health and emotional health component to my overall life style changes. After all there is more to healthy eating and exercise to a healthy happy life.
