Recently I have been going through some personal issues. I had too much going on in my life i just felt out of control. I started to have issues with my concentration, memory and I had verbal outbursts. I was told not even a week ago that i have ADD as well as OCD. Wow. My jaw literally dropped. Here I thought I was going crazy when really the problems were right in front of me and I kept ignoring it. I didn't know what to think about what my doctor told me. I didn't want to believe that I had these issues. I pushed the help away and cried for the first time in a long time.
I cried because I was scared and unsure of what to do. I prayed to God for most of the night. I awoke feeling better but knew I had to change. I never liked asking for help, but sometimes when you have no control in your life, ITS OK to ask for help. It’s ok to say, "Hey, I’m not ok and I need you right now". That’s exactly what i did. I prayed and reached out to loved ones. But bottom line, never hesitate to ask for help. It can change you for the better. Stay strong.
