Still waiting for help, two months later

Published Thursday, August 19, 2021

It took so long for me to reach out for help because I was ashamed to admit I had bad depression and anxiety. “I work as a nurse, so I should have it together,” was my thinking. Then for days all I could think of was I’d be better off not alive. It was so bad I even drove to the ER. I was told another company would reach out to me to continue care … that was 2 months ago.
