A friend in need

Hey all,

So as I have been thinking things have finally cooled down and stabilized, a close friend from college called me two days ago and said she was coming to LA and wanted to see me. When she finally got here and settled in at my place, she turned to me and told me something really serious was going on and that she needed a place to stay for a bit. I wont share what exactly she shared with me for her privacy, but I will say helping a friend in need is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. We all have our struggles and we never should have to face them alone or have to fear reaching out for help or comfort in times of need. I told her she could stay with us as long as she wanted and that I’d be more than happy to help in anyway I can.

 

More to come later

 

People always need help. Please, if you’re suffering, reach out, you are not alone.

It’s scary to talk about my experiences with anxiety and depression and ptsd. But I think it’s only scary because of the stigma and judgment people put on me. People can be very quick to judge one another. But, nowadays I’m open to sharing more about my personal experiences if it could possibly help someone else.

No matter what you’re going through you’re not alone and there are people who want to help. I’ve had to seek help multiple times in my life and I’m glad and grateful that I reached out for help when my instinct was to stay in pain in isolation.

I am a great listener and a great bridge to other resources if anyone is ever interested. Mental health is so important and each person deserves peace of mind.
