For anyone who has struggled with anxiety or depression, here is an article from NAMI’s website that may be helpful in deciding to get treatment. Many people are afraid to take medication because of the erroneous belief that they should be able to manage their symptoms without it. I am glad we live in a time when mental illness is finally being recognized as a legitimate health issue rather than a sign of weakness. Don’t be afraid to seek treatment if you think you need it. Ignoring the symptoms will only make you feel worse in the long-run.
