Physical vs. Mental Health

Why is that if you are physically ill that it’s almost a requirement to seek help, but if you are mentally ill that it tends to be looked down upon?

As most of you know it’s been a year and a half since my grandpa passed. Seemingly on the outside I look ok. I even have gotten physically healthier, but I have gotten mentally sicker. Yes the gym helps, but not always enough. That is why I made the choice to seek a medical professionals help and make my mental health a priority.

I have only been going for two weeks, but I have to tell you it has helped so much. I’m not cured or amazingly better, but I have to tell you I have come to some pretty good conclusions while talking with my therapist. I know this is exactly what I needed to get mentally well.

So if you aren’t mentally feeling your best it is ok and highly suggested to get the help you need. I truly have felt a weight lift from me. So go give it a try! Your mental health is just as important as your physical health!

Promise!
