Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.

You’re not weak for asking for help. Admitting you need help and acting on it is one of the strongest things you can do! You’ve got this and you’ve got my support

Does not asking for help and suffering make you strong? I’d rather be considered “weak” and be happy than “strong” and suffer....mental health isn’t a competition.

Not weak at all OP - good on you for taking charge of your mental wellbeing. Everyone is struggling in one way or another right now - if you’re in a position to get some guidance from a professional, it’s a great idea. I’ve gone in for therapy before and it has helped immensely.

Anyone seeking professional help is weak and should be ashamed. How stupid does that statement I said sound? Incredibly stupid to me. Do it. I stay in touch with a psychiatrist myself and I’m not gonna say I’m super happy all the time but I know I’d be far far worse if I didn’t.

Not if you need it. Just go and don’t be embarrassed.

I really do not understand my company's attendance policy. No sick or personal time and each time you have unscheduled PTO it's considered an occurence. Its super restrictive and during a pandemic you risk people coming to work sick spreading what could potentially be Covid. I just don't get it. I understand they are running a business but it just shows you really don't care about your employees at all but yet you want them to care about this company and the work being done here.
