I know how hopeless that feels 🫤

Did you lookup Adrenal imbalance/fatigue ? Also your Vitamin D & Iron levels. Might be worth a try.
I had chronic fatigue, irritability, dry skin & pins/needles sensation in feet when i sleep. This is what helped me:
Vitamin D supplement, Iron supplement(tonic form so that it doesn't cause constipation) and drinking a glass of water with 1/4 spoon of salt first thing in the morning as soon as i wake up.

Why are people opposing return to office. I have been working virtually for more than 2 years and it impacts your mental health. We need a balance where we can work 2-3 days from office and collaborate with our team members. Don’t we all miss those days when we went to office, had lot of collaborative work done, lots of fun, canteen , meeting new people and get togethers. I see many people opposing it but folks how long we want remain in virtual world.

I wasn’t expecting because during our previous session he said he will reach out to EAP and get an extension b/c I have PSTD & anxiety. Today he decided there is no clinical need. I got so emotional all of a sudden. He said his fees are $300 per session (he only does online) if I want to pay out of pocket. His profile says he does sliding-scale, but didn’t offer me anything. I think he doesn’t want to see me😔
