How do you know when it’s time to get help? I’ve never seen a mental health professional but I just don’t feel like myself lately, a lot of which I think is attributed to quarantine.

Last year I was laid off from my company due because of synergies.At the beginning I thought it was the last drop, but then I realized it was the best thing ever happened to me.Many times I considered quitting, but I was too scared and I was worried that my depression wouldn’t go away with a new job. I was wrong and while I looked for a job I was able to take time off and heal. I started a new job, and so far so good!There is alway a light at the end of the tunnel.I hope this help someone else!

Has anyone experienced trauma in life ? How do we recover from those PTSDs ? I have been in abusive relationships and I can get mental meltdown easily when I experience conflicts.

Anyone else having trouble staying focused while working from home? I’m in a tiny apartment in NYC and with my husband and I both being here 24/7 I am feeling very trapped and never get any meaningful alone time, which I need. He normally travels a bit for work, so this is really different for us. My focus is shot, I’m terrified of getting laid off and yet am having trouble motivating myself. Any advice? Anxiety through the roof too.

Watching the trials of Gabriel Fernandez is breaking my heart and is also making me remember the abuse I went through as a child. RIP.

Looking for someone in big four accounting to connect with and vent with. Is this the right place to find someone? I find that it helps to talk about these things with someone who understands.

My partner tells me to share my anxieties. I do share some, but I tell him I cannot possibly share all. There are many, and I don’t want to subject him to the inner turmoil I suffer daily.

How do you keep your cool and not cry in emotionally charged work situations? My nerves are shot, my team is overworked and chronically understaffed, and the pressure is about to get even worse. Halp!

I finally have a job where I can focus on my goals (CPA and working out). I have much more time now and am finally out of PA. How the heck do I get back into it? Any tips are welcome!

I don’t know if I can do this job. I’m on some insane engagements for the next few months, and I don’t know how I’m supposed to balance the crazy hours and my personal life/relationship. I’m really...

Can you learn to care less (give less fucks)? I feel like I care too much about the job, family, trying to date, the CPA, etc, it makes me feel helpless when my plans don’t work & my hopes are dashed.
