Hey Laura,

I don't believe that will affect your future career in terms of getting accepted into school programs or receiving job offers in those fields of work. Many workers in the social service/mental health field have been through similar experiences that many of the clients they work with are also going through.

Working in the social service field is rewarding but it can also be very challenging. You need to practice excellent self care and be very self aware of what areas of work you can do and what you should avoid if it's only going to trigger you. It is very easy to burn out if you're not at a point in your life where you're healthy and have the support you need.

Like I mentioned before though, a future career in what you're thinking about can be very rewarding and your personal experience can definitely help you in terms of being more empathetic, open, and motivated to provide support to others. All in all, the support you seek right now will not affect your career. Just be aware that your experiences may bring you some difficulties if you go into that field before you're really ready and healthy.

Hope this post helped a bit!
Take care. :]
