hello everyone! I am a therapist who specializes in treating depression and anxiety while also being diagnosed with it. it can be difficult to be depended on to help others when I'm struggling myself, which is often.

      I imagine that is extremely difficult, I have kids and even though they know I struggle with things sometimes, they still can't completely understand. But as a therapist to not even let people know you are struggling, I can't imagine. I have anxiety, depression, PTSD, and ADHD. Also severe nightmares that I can't take any medication they have tried so far. All have ended disastrously. I hope you can find some peace. I will say this, the best therapist I've ever had, was able to help me the most because they did have similar difficulties. And could give me advice that no other therapist could because they had been through the same things. I hope you find some relief to your struggles, and I hope you can share what helped with your clients.

        @Lilybaby29 thank you for this! I actually have told my clients that I struggle with the same things. However, there's only so much I can tell them without taking away from their appointments. It does give them a sense of relief to know that I can relate to them not only on a professional level, but on a personal level.
