Thank you for joining us both ghostcrab15 and Ladyhawk17.
I completely understand where you're coming from and can guarantee that you're not alone in this. I've seen so many posts from people who don't feel like their problems are big enough or worthy enough to get help.
Other than the warm welcomes and suggestions here, here's some extra things to think about.
- If you had a sore tooth, would you not want to go to the dentist because other people might have infections or impacted wisdom teeth?
- If you don't think your problems are serious enough, where do you think that line is? I can tell you from experience that there is no line, but sometimes reflecting on that can be really helpful because there's no 'minimum requirement' to get therapy.
- What if you were to think about therapy as preventative? Maybe that can be the sense of helping to clean a wound rather than coming in when it's infected.
- If your friend told you the same thing, what might you tell them?
A few metaphors here and things to think about but hopefully it helps! I promise you that you are important, your problems do matter and you deserve really good care.
