The ones that are closest to you are the ones that can save you. My family saved me from checking myself out. Being a creative soul constantly gives you a raw edge in emotions and I have found that extra care and nuturing is important for a stable mind.
This is a song written by my biggest inspiration, that being Sam Phillips (http://www.samphillips.com). If you haven't already, please check her stuff out. I am reprinting the lyric without permission but in many ways this song is my "launch song". It encouraged me to "give up the ground under my feet and hold on to nothing for good."
