  • My journey with depression and anxiety

    My story starts with my application to become a Military Training Instructor. I was so energized and excited at the thought of having the impact on new trainees; the same impact my MTI had on me. I joined the military initially because I wanted to improve myself, and now as an MTI, I was thrilled at the thought to impart that same desire on others. As a former reservist, I had to submit an application and complete an interview before possibly being selected. I remember practicing my interview answers over and over again. I wanted this and I wasn’t going to rest until I was selected. I talked about my desire to have a tangible impact on trainees and the ability to better myself in the process blah, blah, blah. A few days later I received a phone call that I was selected and I couldn’t contain my excitement. It felt like my dreams were coming true and I was hitting the high point of my life. It was the beginning of my downward spiral.

COVID-19 has created many challenges for parents and caregivers who are home with children full-time while trying to manage telework, homeschooling, parenting, and perhaps their own academic or extracurricular pursuits. Social media is lit up presently, with the impact of more time with kids at home (some good, some bad, and some funny).
