the truth is raw

I wasn’t sure what was going to be harder to ask for – a pap smear or a referral to see a psychologist – but today was the day I would find out.

Both things were due, but admitting that I needed to talk to a professional was tough. I’ve always tried to be steady and calm, especially everything that’s happened with Jovie in the last year or so. I always thought that things will and do sort themselves out, and I still believe that. But I also think that being brave is also admitting that you’re not coping.

Turns out the pap smear was a cake walk.

And I’ll start unravelling and putting back my head next Monday at 3.

edited to add – this article came at the right time!

definitely definitely the right thing to do. not only for you, but for your family as well. and that’s why there’s people qualified to do those jobs. because sometime people just need a little help or to talk things through.

so brave tracey x
