I got a request for a topic via a donation for SSA Week. It is the title of this post.
The best advice I can offer is not to do it alone. Tell your friends what’s going on. Have a friend there when you make the appointment. Have a friend accompany you to the appointment. It’s hard admitting you’re not well, I know. Being honest about it rather than trying to hide things and do it on your own will be much, much better.
I’m glad you’re considering doing this. After so many promises of life getting better that don’t work, I know it’s easy to get pessimistic. Therapy and medication work. I’m glad you’re going to give them a chance.
