Missing words in Anxiety article

There seems to be some words missing from the main article on anxiety.

Paragraph 2:
People will sometimes not want to ask for help because they think that people might think that they are.

    Might just be poor phrasing - I think they're trying to say that a person refrains from getting help, because then they will be perceived as needing help.

    So the sentance is saying
    " People will sometimes not want to ask for help, because they think that people might think that they are asking for help - and they don't want to be perceived as needing help"

    I could be really wrong though..!
