“I am a graduate student and I teach at the university I attend. This year I'm teaching two classes and it's so overwhelming. I am so behind in grading and I feel so bad because I want to give these students the best I can give, but I also need to focus on my own studies. My office mates are great, but I feel like we're all so busy that every time I try to reach out and tell them about my depression/anxiety, they have to leave or there isn't enough time to talk.”
