I refused help until I nearly ended my life, it was a wake up call which ended up with me taking anything docs offered to help

Oh yes totally, I will always grieve the time I lost but I’ve made peace with it now, took a few years though

I didn't expect it to be as all consuming it was and the guilt that would bring when I had a little person to care for
