No matter how hard we try, life often gets hard. It's no different for me. I've been learning not to try and take life three or four days at a time, so now I'm trying to slow the pace a bit, and take control of what I can. So I've taken a study break for the semester, which is doing me wonders.

I've been having some pretty full on panic attacks and stuff, so definitely feeling the pressure. Work has changed since one of my workmates left, and I was given his job. I'm enjoying the challenge, but it's definitely been a boots-and-all experience!

I had some difficulty admitting that I wasn't coping, but now I have, and I'm on the mend. With the help of my fantastic family and friends, I know I'll get through anything life can throw at me. I don't know why it took me so long to ask for help!

Life doesn't end when things get tough. If anything, life is going to get harder if you just ignore problems in the hope that they'll go away. There's nothing wrong with asking for a bit of help when things get beyond you. You're not doing anyone any favours, especially yourself, if you just suffer in silence.

Does any of this sound like you? Don't leave it too long, or you just might end up with bigger problems, just like I almost did.
