Me in February 2017 when I collapsed of mental exhaustion/compassion fatigue and me 6 month later healing myself. I was physically present but deteriorating and mentally and emotionnal absent...I was in denial and ashamed about my feelings and my symptoms not wanting to admit because I figured, if I did, as a social worker, co-worker, mother, wife, friend & daughter, I had failed. Failed at being a super strong woman that I was suppose to be; to be able to do a job I loved to do; It couldn't possibly happen to ME....Well ha reality check girl, ya aint not perfect superhero, nobody is and taking time to rest, recharge, recoop, reconnect with your self is crucial and ive been saying so for years but hey, life happens and you know what, I didn't do those things because society tells you everyone else is more important well I say Bullshit! YOU are important and YOU need to take care of YOURSELF first if not, YOU will never manage to stay a float, you will sink, as I did and thank god I realized soon enough before to affected my body negatively as stress can be deadly. Im not looking for anything here other than hopefully inspiring someone who is silently suffering, who thinks its not ok to pause life and work to care for oneself to actually do so and reach out and get the help!
