Kiery’s Stages of Getting Help

Kiery’s Stages of Getting Help

1) Meh, this is probably not anything. I can deal with it, everyone else is probably the same way.

2) I deserve this, I shouldn’t fix it, it’s just part of me and most likely my fault (thanks bad theology for roping yourself into the worst places)

3) That’s bullshit, no one deserves to live like this, I can’t do anything I like anymore and it’s driving me crazy

4) Freak out because I’m going to the doctors office to talk about meds

4a) Stay up all night running through the conversation with the doctor in my head, 12 hours before I go to the appointment

4b) Anxiety because of having to explain something that is felt so deeply but doesn’t really lend way to words that accurately convey the amount of depression or anxiety I’m dealing with. Also anxiety about talking about it, and forgetting key details.

5) Leave the doctors office with new prescription and hope I did okay. Reason that I must have because I have a new prescription and hopefully it’ll work.

6) Feel validated because I fixed point 3 and realized 1 and 2 are lies

7) Go back to bed to catch up on sleep from being stressed out all night, and then pick up prescription

tl;dr:  I got help. Finally.
