OP if you don’t mind me asking - were you able to find the cause of the issue? is it age related or something else? I am asking because my mom went through this and is recovering. She was depressed for a long period of time as I am the only child and I am in US for 11 years. She misses me which is natural but as day went on she thought that she will never see me again though I visited her every year and do facetime everyday. She has been US too. So, I kept talking to her constantly whenever she needed me. It is hard but you have to be there whenever phone rings just to give them the peace of mind. Anxiety is something which when triggered can get out of control and if you are the only thing that calms them down - you have to be there for them. I thought of taking my mom to psychiatrist and put on meds but got feedback from many that meds are very dangerous for health in long run. So, apart from talk therapy - she got engaged to holistic healing - yoga, meditation and she is way better like 90%. Though there is bout of depression/anxiety but she can control it now. Hope this helps for you. Good Luck. DM me if you need more info.

In the EXACT same situation

For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
