It's up to you to reach out

If you are feeling down and you are feeling depressed, then it's up to you to pick up the phone and call someone from that breast cancer support group or reach for recovery, or whoever you have been dealing with, or even your doctor's office and say: "This is really bad. I am really ill, and on top of that I'm really, really depressed. Can I talk to someone in the office?" And they don't say no. They recognize that and they deal with it. So it's important I think to reach out for people.
