It is quite clear I need therapy promptly, but I do not know how to start having it.

It is possible that I have been depressed or anxious or both for the bulk of my 50+ years, but current issues have brought the matter forward in importance. I must have some kind of help and have it soon, but I don't know how to start or what questions to ask. My choices boil down to: 1) (specific question) or 2) WAAH. 1) means I have to select what's highest in priority and I do not know how to answer that for myself. 2) feels like a throw of the dice. I need a human guide or meta-therapist one way or another, because everything seems like priority one. What do you do when you know something ails you and you have the clues but no way of knowing how to begin? NB. This isn't a question about finding a therapist; it's a question about knowing what questions to ask of one to begin with.
