Default Re: How do I ask for help?

Honestly, I'm in the exact same situation as you. I need help but I'm too scared to ask for it or actively seek it.

Another part of acceptance is to try your best to create excuses around it, like "I don't have enough time for it".

If you have a good relationship with your parents bring it up quite frequently, seek their advice. Maybe with frequent conversations saying you want help they will listen and try their best to help you.

If they don't want to help or don't understand the gravity of the situation, or if you don't feel comfortable telling them, go on your own. You don't need to be accompanied. Obviously it might be very different in the US since you need to pay for therapy, but if you can go to the doctors first and get a consultation it can steer you in the right direction in which you could tell your parents and it could help them understand how serious you really are.
