Breakup Resources

We are not doctors, nor are we licensed therapists. Most women we do speak with are depressed in some form or another. Please read the following and seek medical attention if you are feeling suicidal, or the breakup is interfering with your everyday life — taking care of your children, getting to work on time, etc.

 

The National Library of Medicine describes depression as “feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps.”

 

Further they say: “Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods. But true clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for an extended time.”

 

If you are feeling as if you want to hurt yourself, or even worse, commit suicide, please seek help.

 

Go to therapy:

 

Call your primary care physician for a referral to a therapist. If you do not have a primary care physician, you can refer to the yellow pages or visit www.LetsTalkCounseling.org.

 

A lot of insurance companies now cover therapy. Some businesses have free counseling programs of which you can take advantage — and your problems don’t even have to be about work! If you’re in high school, you can talk to your school counselor. If you’re in college, you can usually get free access to some form of counseling without paying a dime.

 

If none of these options are available to you, then use the internet to find free group counseling sessions (sometimes at your local YMCA or a local school), or you can ask a therapist to discount her rates for you. Some therapists will work pro bono dependent upon the situation.

 

If you’re feeling suicidal, now is not the time to be proud. Just be honest and ask for help,or just go to your local hospital. Someone will help you.
