Emotional preparation before getting help/opening up

  1. I have many problems in my life, real and some probably imagined. I am wanting to tell my parents and others how I have been feeling so I can get the real help I need, but every time I want to do it I find a reason not to. I just want to tell them everything. How I am having trouble at work, how I drink too much, how hopeless I sometimes feel... everything. I don't know how to bring it up or what to say when I do.

    Anybody who has done this themselves, can you share how you prepared for these most difficult of conversations?

    Thanks.

    I would look to write a letter and then maybe hand it over because you can thoroughly prepare beforehand and it also means it is all there and people can read and reread it over several times to digest stuff.
