VENT WARNING
So something just happened and I'm beating myself up about it. So for some context I feel like I'm my stepmoms escape goat when it comes to my brother and she just called and asked if I can take my brother to speech therapy today cuz something is acting up to where she can barely walk or whatever and I told her that my depression is acting up. When someone has a physical problem they get treated differently than someone with mentally problem.

Depression

Anxiety (Including GAD)

    That's understandable. You want to be as helpful and supportive to your loved ones. It makes it hard to want to do that when you have to take care of your own mental health. Then having the guilt of saying no doesn't help the mental health either. It sucks because mental health isn't something you can actually show sometimes like physical pain. I think that's why mental health needs to be taken seriously because the mind really is powerful.

        It's not your responsibility tho. There's nothing wrong with being there for people. It just shouldn't come at the expense of your own health. But you know that tho. It's not easy and it will take time to put yourself first, but you got this!
