Hello. This is my first time here. I felt I needed to talk to someone. I wasn't sure if I needed professional help or not...maybe you guys can tell me
First of all, I've been having a very tough year. And please don't judge me on what I'm about to tell you because I've been keeping it inside me for a very long time...
I broke up with my boyfriend of 3 yrs in Jan...Although I don't know why. I just felt we weren't "IN" love anymore. After seeing other guys I got an abortion. I have never told anyone this. Not a single soul. Not even the guy that got me pregnant. I felt awful and ashamed. I went through the whole procedure by myself. That is one thing I never want to experience again. Then I got into a car accident, which triggered my lower back pain which I had previously had surgery on. I've been seeing a chiropractor for 2 months now. Then my mom came (from another country) to visit. The mom that I never really get along with. The mom that I love with all my heart, but never really like. Then she told me this week that my dad had cheated on her. The dad who is my hero. The one person I really respect more than anyone. The dad that I love with all my heart AND like.
So...the last few days I havn't done anything but sleep. I didn't go to work. I didn't even call in sick. I just sleep all day and night. This isn't anything new. Every once in a while I get like this. I don't get the phone, I don't go to work, and I just sleep for days.
Do you think I need some professional help? I mean, I know everyone has their own issues and ways of dealing with them...but when do you know if you need to seek help?
