Are you often tearful over, what to others, might be the smallest thing? What about feeling overwhelmed a lot of the time? Do you have times where your heart is racing a million miles a minutes because you're anxious about something? Does it seem like you often say to yourself "I'm the one everyone comes to for help, I have to be strong" or "It's just that I'm having a rough time lately.”
How do you take the first step in seeking out counseling?
