I really hope anyone who even thinks they might need help with not being focused, depression, anxiety, etc, asks a doctor about it, regardless of the treatment path decided on afterwards. There is no shame in it.
Fellow Authors and Creatives: The truth is, we did not pick easy jobs. We’re in a stressful industry at a stressful time, with outside responsibilities and things going on that other people don’t know about. That stress can get to you mentally, as well as physically, so even if it’s not what you would call textbook “depression” if you’re having a hard time, go ask your doctor and get an objective opinion.
