I can't help but laugh at the irony of what I'm about to write about.
I'm turning 25 at the end of this month and have been going through a fairly large amount of stress lately. Some have called it my quarter-life crisis. Whatever it is, it's not pretty and it's been rough keeping my head up. I haven't spoken of it much with many people because these are the same issues I've been trying to work on for the last couple of years and I hate sounding like a broken record.
I've had various successes in my own private recovery but I'd say the same amount of setbacks and steps back. Truth of the matter is I cannot do this alone anymore. I need help and I need someone outside of it all to provide me with some insight.
I know I'm being quite vague about it all but I'm not sure I'm ready to divulge a lot of this information yet. It's a lot. It's complicated. It's messy. And it's frightening.
I'm putting myself on my own recovery program and I cannot put it off any longer, so I'm starting today.
Step One: Find a therapist to talk to.
