When did you last ask for help?

A long, long time ago I did an internship at a neo-natal clinic in Paris. I was young, incredibly inexperienced, and determined to seen like the opposite of both of those things. I can't remember what happened, but one day ended with me in tears being severely rebuked by the charge nurse. Her closing words to me that day were "Here, when you're too proud to ask for help, people and babies can die." 

Asking for help is hard. It makes you feel weak and incompetent. Truth is, since it is so hard, asking for help is the bravest thing you can ever do.

Despite all that I know I find it hard to ask. How about you:
When was the last time you asked for help? 
When was the last time you should have asked and didn't?

I saw this link come across on Facebook from Mama Dweeb and had to comment. It IS incredibly hard to ask for help but with two kids on the spectrum with other health problems and my own health problems, I have recently had to do just that.
