“It’s actually way more common than you might expect.”
I’d like to preface this post by saying that I am not a mental health professional, and this post is absolutely not meant to replace the advice of one. I’m just someone who’s been through this and would like to help others in a similar position.
Towards the end of last year, I shared my story in a guest post on The Unwritten blog. You can see that post by clicking here.
To sum it up, almost exactly a year ago I finally reached out to my primary care physician about feeling “down” pretty often.
On the surface, everything should have been great. I have a wonderful boyfriend who I love, loving family and friends, a nice apartment, a secure financial situation, and I had a stable job as a nurse. What was there to feel down about?
