When you find that your emotions are interfering with your daily life, and preventing you from doing the things you normally do, that's usually a good time to sit down and think introspectively. When did it start? Did something cause you to suddenly feel this way? If you feel as though you can't live a normal life because your feelings take over, that's probably the time to start getting physiological help, though talking to a counselor also may help. It's dependent on the situation, and takes a lot of self-talk to know one way or another.

When you're ready, if you're not ready to think that you need that help then one day you will or one day you won't, but when you're ready and comfortable and feel like you need and want that help, do then seek the help!

If your problem or emotions are having a significant impact on your every day life or interfering with your day-to-day living, it may be time to consider seeking professional support.

when you feel that you are ready to. things around you may help you to be ready i.e. how other people are reacting to you and even the fact that you are ready to admit to yourself that you need help.

You admit to yourself when need physiological help you personally start asking yourself these questions. Realizing that you need someone to talk to and hear you out on what you are going through.

When you feel like it's hard to cope with what you're going through by yourself. Especially when you feel suicidal.

When it begins to create problems in your life. For e.g. your daily routine is obstructed by your psychological problems. Or if you fear that it is quickly worsening or afraid of what it will lead to. And if in doubt, go for at least a check up. It's always best to play it safe.

When you problems outweigh the good things in your life and you find it hard to deal with your normal daily living, then it may be time to seek further medical attention. Seeking advice from a professional healthcare provider can start to putting you on the right track from medications, to counseling or therapy. But you have to make that first step in admitting and knowing that things have gotten to difficult to handle on your own.

When it starts to interfere with your daily life and the relationships you keep in your daily life as well.

as soon as you feel like you should....as soon as you feel overwhelmed, out of control, need help, etc. it's never too soon to seek help :)

The major time that you should admit is when you start feeling suicidal. However, you have the right to admit it at any time.

I would say when you feel like what you’re feeling is starting to look as if it’s controlling your life and becomes the main reason you decide things. (I, personally, often let opportunities pass because I’m worried about my anxiety in those situations, and I often lose out.) If it controls you, you’re tired of it, and you WANT help (you have to want it), then I would say you should seek it.
