Helping Adult LGBTQ + frontline providers or first responders who are feeling run down, burnt out, afraid for their safety, or hopeless regarding the job that was once loved discover (or perhaps be reminded) of new ways to manage what health care looks and feels like in todays COVID-19 world.
It can feel tough to deal with everything right now, especially when too much is happening or we are witnessing so much death, despair, and fear.
Most people who start LGBTQ+ Frontline Provider and First Responder Counseling feel stuck in repeat of the same terrifying and heartbreaking moments. Perhaps you can relate? Maybe your days start to blur together or you feel like you want to escape your life?
Stuck in overload, many have begun to feel hopeless, like your downing underwater while carrying your patients, clients, or customers on your shoulders.
Do You Feel Numb, Moody, Overwhelmed?
Do any of the following resonate with you?
Your energy levels are at an all time low... I'm just exhausted?
You've lost the joyful feelings that you used to have in life?
You have an insane schedule that doesn’t let you rest?
Your sleep is interrupted by anxiety or nightmares or you lay away unable to fall asleep night after night?
You wake in the morning feeling overwhelmed and depressed--have trouble convincing yourself to get out of that bed because life sometimes doesn't feel worth living at this pace?
You get stuck in your head worrying about dying due to your job, the consequence of your job on your family or loved ones, or how you can't do you your job like you used to because you are run down?
Perhaps you have turned to substances, self-harm, or are thinking of suicide because things are just too overwhelming right now.
If any of these sound true for you, I want you to know that even though you might feel like a failure for needing help, that couldn’t be further from the truth. It takes courage to become aware about what you are going through and ask for help. You deserve to get the help that you need to get through this unimaginable time.
Self-care is not an indulgence or a selfish act. In fact, it is especially important to take care of yourself when you have the responsibility of caring for others.
