I hope so. It’s so hard to take care of students’ needs when depression makes it hard to take care of your own needs. Best wishes to you.💜

I had a really hard time three years ago. My trauma was resurfacing and was having panic attacks left and right. My depression was out of control. My district worked with me and my doctor to basically form an accommodation plan for me so I wouldn’t get in trouble due to absences. Be transparent with admin about what’s going on and see how they can help. It is easy to be feeling like this. 💛

Yes, it is and could be the basis for a medical leave, FMLA, or accommodations. HR dept should provide you with your organization's policies.

I have taken 2 stress leaves. The key is that you have taken proactive steps. See a counselor for several sessions, then a psychiatrist. Generally, in our insurance case (privately purchased disability insurance,) you have to show a pattern that you have proactively tried to solve. If you can manage it, and can get help, I highly recommend it. With me, it just dawned on me, "I am done." It was clear as a bell. My counselor has many teacher patients, so that is helpful as well.

How do you feel about splitting everything 50-50 with your partner? I don’t feel as rigid about it bc I feel it balances out one way or another, but my partner feels as if he owes me if we don’t split 50-50 and I pay more. I get where he’s coming from but 50-50 just feels transactional and not intimate. For context: I make 3x more than he does and he’s still finishing his medical fellowship, so I don’t feel it’s a matter of feeling less than.

I never thought being a mom would be this difficult. I am working full time, have an infant who wakes up every 3-4h and doesn't fall back asleep unless held in arms, am breastfeeding for medical reasons, and feel resentful and beyond tired all the time. I hate the fact that my body is so different to how it was before, that I don't have a sense of self any more, that I can't disconnect and take a break (and this is likely to not change for years to come). Is this normal or unfit to be a mom?
