Why is being a mom and working in healthcare so difficult? I always feel like I am failing.

Would it make you feel like you’re failing less if I told you I still haven’t taken my Christmas tree all the way down? It’s true…. 😜. Go easy on yourself - especially in the times we’re in - no one can do it all. I’m willing to bet there are people in your life thinking to themselves “How does she do it?!?” …while admiring the sh*t out of you. 💜. And in the midst of taking care of EVERYONE around you…don’t forget to take care of yourself too! I know it’s so much easier said than done but you deserve it, Dr. Mamma!

Hang in there! That feeling is normal but most importantly it's just a feeling. It's not reality. You are doing amazing.

Being a mom and working outside the home in general is a battle, never mind the chaos and crazy hours of the health care industry. I don't have a solution, just wanted to weigh in and let you know you're not alone. And while you may feel as though you're failing, I'd be willing to bet your children don't hold that viewpoint at all.

I think all of us moms feel that way at some point or another. You are not failing. Hang in there.

You're not alone! You should definitely look into getting some counseling or therapy to work through this.

You're doing great mama! You are trying your best and that's what matters.

I know the feeling...What makes me feel better is, all my hard work is showing my kids, its possible to chase their dreams.

Go easy on yourself, Madam. Being in healthcare is a feat enough– now being a mother at the same time? I think that's pretty amazing. Give yourself credit, you made it, and you'll keep going!

I resigned from my most current employer about a month ago to focus on my mental health & transition to a new opportunity. I was honestly burned out. During this time of relaxation (& job hunting), I was offered a new role and accepted it. However, the offer is contingent upon a successful background check. I cannot remember if I told the hiring team that I resigned from my current employer or not. And I fear that this will show up in the background check that I’m no longer an active employee.

I posted about a week ago about having trouble finding a therapist with availability and getting responses from “in-network” providers. I got a recommendation to a provider that happened to be out of network. Here is the tip: If an out-of-network therapist is accepting insurance besides your plan, they may accept a “single case approval” from your insurance company. I have Aetna and the therapist I found suggested getting a “single case approval” which was approved and now she is in-network!
