I feel you. And when you’re already talking about campaigns that won’t launch until Q1 2020 it makes you feel even more disoriented.


FCB1–Yesss. Also, my thought is always, “who in this room will even be here then? will I? will I even be alive?"


It’s so refreshing to know I’m not alone in these feelings. But it doesn’t make it easier. Try to focus on the here & now. I know it’s easier said than done, but genuinely try to tune everyone’s potential thoughts out and focus on what you need to do each day to get by. It’s not as serious as we think. Try to smile, chat and open your heart to others who are feeling exactly like you.


Been through that many times. It sounds like you may need some time off. Or, and I hate to sound overly simplistic but have you tried exercise? I literally am a raging , angry, frustrated, misanthropic asshole if I don’t sweat it out at least 3 times a week. No anti-depressant or anti-anxiety meds work as well as a freaking OrangeTheory class does for me. That and getting away from working too much. You could just be overworked.

Need a way to help with water intake at school? I was skeptical of it at first but finally caved and bought the cirkul bottle it has helped me nearly double my water intake since having it!! It’s small enough to carry around the classroom, tons of different flavors, and the metal bottle keeps the water cold throughout the school day! 😍 let me know if you want to know more about my favorite flavors so far! Also! Having an Amazon echo with reminders scheduled helped remind me to drink up too!

Manager made it clear he isn’t happy with how I’ve been doing some of my work lately. His messages to me instantly brought up a whole mental can of worms.
