I'd had enough of life
I was finding things really tough and got to the stage where I'd had enough of life. I knew I had reached crisis point and that I desperately needed help, as I could no longer cope.
I didn't feel I could talk to my partner as he had PTSD, so his mental state made things more difficult. I was thinking more about him than my own health and, before I knew it, I had hit rock bottom.
I couldn't see a way forward or how to change things in order to look after my own well-being.
I decided to speak to a counsellor and I'm so glad I did. My counsellor has helped me immensely. I'm now on the right track and am able to handle things much better, even on the most difficult days.
