Anger, Fear and Exhaustion from Covid 19 is normal
Feeling out of control often causes crying, poor sleep, irritability, not wanting to do anything after work (not that you can anyway) and more. These behaviors stemming from intense feelings are normal. This is an unprecedented time. You are not alone, crazy, weak or a failure.
You are a hardworking, dedicated individual who used to absolutely love your job
You powered through years of red tape, being in the thick of people’s pain with little support or understanding from management, and being overworked.
Now your livelihood is killing you. You dread going to work and you’re afraid of losing control yourself. Even before Covid 19 reared its ugly head, you were stressed. Now it is almost impossible to manage every day.
You tried ignoring the bureaucracy, and pushing away your own feelings but that was not enough.
It never is.
You started “self care” with youtube yoga, meditation, exercise, and internet support. You don't have the energy to go to the gym, but you don't feel comfortable going anyway with Covid 19 so rampant. Some of these even worked a bit, but it just still wasn’t enough.
You have hopes and dreams for your life and career, but know that you won’t get there feeling this stressed out. You sometimes question whether you want to stay in this career. Will you survive what Covid 19 has done to you and your community?
In order to survive this crisis, you need to feel level-headed with a good mindset,
but instead you’re feeling scared and burnt out.
There is hope...
You are ready to feel in control and competent again.
You just don’t know where to start, and aren't looking for "therapy."
