h e l p - BDP

Thank you for your response!

(20F) I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety when I was 14, I am currently on my third mental health care plan and taking medication again after voluntarily taking myself off my medication 1.5 years ago and refused to go to any appointments. However in august I went back to the GP (new one) as my mental health started to deteriorate, it got worse and i needed help.

I feel stuck in terms of seeing psychologists/psychiatrists as I work as a casual receptionist on full time hours Monday to Friday on $15hr (aud and off the books) after paying bills, I'm left with enough to get food till the next pay and the free option is only available during the times that I work.

i feel like asking for an hour or so off work is to much of an ask and get immediately shut down. this causes me to have major anxiety, then I dont even bother asking and continue to neglect myself.

I dont know what to do, I'm so lost
