South end clinic
To the girl in the south end clinic this morning who came in seeking mental health treatment, I’m proud if you. I wasn’t trying to eavesdrop but the clinic was dead silent and I heard.
Good for you for getting help. I know how hard it can be to step out and get help. I know deciding to leave your house was very hard, and I know walking into the clinic and telling the nurse that you needed help was hard. Sitting in the waiting room, waiting to be called in was hard. But you did it. I would have asked you of you were okay or if there was anything I could do but I know if someone asked me that on a hard day I would break down right there, so I didn’t, but I’m proud of you. Today likely won’t be a break through, and the walk in clinic probably won’t solve your problems but you sought help. You are doing what you can to help yourself.
So to you and anyone else having a very hard day but still doing what you can: I’m proud of you.
