SH ED MH Support, moving on etc


How do you do it? How do you move on? Or how do you actually verbalise a need for support?
Does the shame and guilt ever leave?
I'm not where I was 10 years ago, but I still feel utter shame and humiliation whenever I have to speak to any professionals

Perhaps if you can work on your self esteem, some of those feelings of guilt/shame would lessen. Professionals are only the same as everyone else, with their own sets of struggles and problems which you might cope with better than them. If you believe that the people you're talking to are on the same level, it's easier to communicate.

I struggle to verbalise a need for support or how I'm feeling about things which is why I often write things down and let them read it or I send my CC a letter if there's something that I need to discuss but won't have the courage to bring up myself.
