Hello, I’m an LMSW in Michigan. I have 15 years of experience in the field as a clinician, supervisor, and an administrator. I am feeling burnt out and unsure of my future. I have worked mainly in the Community Mental Health and the VA Health systems, hence my fatigue. I’ve flirted with private practice work in the past, but my spouse has been worried about not having affordable healthcare and benefits that each system provides. Is it worth the jump? Am I overthinking things?

Caught covid and 1 week in. I'm very fortunate and my symptoms are relatively mild. I took the Regeneron antibodies and it does certainly seem to be an amazing treatment. As I have learned more, it seems that everyone I can find who took it has experienced fewer and less severe symptoms and a shorter duration overall. I have also been a strict and aggressive vitamin regimen from day 2.

If you catch covid, I encourage you to speak with you doctor about this quickly in the process.

Good luck!
