Burying your head in the sand is never really going to help - though I do understand why certain life events seem too daunting to face, so I'd allow you a short stay; a day pass for the "head in the sand" section.
Once you've released your head back into the glaring light of day and shaken the sand from your eyes and ears it would then be time to get on with finding out what your options are, and whether or not you're up for those options. One can never assume that just because knowledge is gained appropriate action will follow.
Fear steps in....
Fear of the unknown.
Fear of acceptance.
Fear of failure.
There can be a sense of safety while you remain stuck in the loop of denial. Safety with regards to your headmind at least, but not the all knowing, all loving bodymind, it wants to be lovingly cared for. It wants you to take positive steps in a direction that both acknowledges there's been a problem and pro-actively witnesses you taking educated, well informed steps to remedy the problem.
If I know I've overdrawn my bank account and carry on merrily spending when I literally have no money left, I'm not going to get away with that for too long.
I might receive a polite text from the bank asking me to put funds in today as I've overdrawn my account.
I can delete the text and pretend I never saw it.
I might start getting letters from the council as I've missed a council tax payment.
I can choose not to open the letter as I have a feeling I know what that's about.
The companies I have direct debits or standing orders with start calling.
I choose not to pick up.
When it comes to issues of your health. You can choose to ignore the early warning signs, or you can look up, start investigating your options and be as pro-active as possible. Looking after yourself is no more than you deserve - if you're finding it difficult to show yourself the same kindness you would show a loved one, or a dear friend, confide in them. Tell them how you're feeling and ask them to help you take the first step towards helping yourself be well again.
"Facts do not cease to exist just because they are ignored." - Aldous Huxley.
