“I had anxiety about balancing my career and my children long before the pandemic was even mentioned. When my feelings started to change from worry to outright despair and intense sadness, I decided to look for help. I was lucky enough to find someone who can help me deal with my internal conflict so that I can better manage my perspectives on the challenges in front of me. I would encourage anyone who is experiencing any kind of struggle to reach out for help. None of us is ever truly alone and even a little help can go a long way.”
