It certainly can be frightening asking for help initially and it is a stage we all go through. Going to see someone in person or attending a support group is usually how a lot of people do it. If that is way too invasive you can maybe try finding someone here or online somewhere else to vent a little bit and to get some advice and test the waters before plunging in so to speak. It's kind of a small, but in no means trivial step, in your journey to get better.

I was seeing a therapist and sometimes I was not able to see him so we would do our sessions over the phone, but I much preferred actually seeing him. Regardless, there are a lot of therapists that do skype/phone therapy. Due your diligence in searching for the right person, but don't be surprised if it happens that you have to go through a few therapists before you connect with the right person.

And wet she rose from the lake, and fast and fleet went she
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body

And loud, long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly did he ride
Saying "Course well, my brindled hound, and fetch me the jet black mare
Stoop and strike, my good grey hawk, and bring me the maiden fair"
