All my life I’ve been her perfect 4.2GPA over-achieving daughter who is also an artist and she knows nothing about my depression, and I’ve decided that it has gotten bad enough that I really need professional help, and I’m going to ask her to get me a therapist. How do I tell her all this? What do I even say?
UPDATE: Just told her over facebook. Went really well…. now I just need to actually find someone. Anyone know a good website to look them up by location?
It's great that you realize you need help! Maybe text her? I don't like discussing my Mental Health around my mom (well that's me) Just say "Hey, I feel like I could use some help.. could I maybe start seeing someone?"
