“I've been super depressed at my internship lately. I'll start to tear up at my desk for no reason and have to dig my nails into my forearms just to gain some sense of control. There's nowhere in my building I can go for privacy and I feel trapped. My family is across the country and I want to just get them on the phone and cry, but at the same time I don't want to be a bother. I'm not sure I can handle coming in to the office the rest of this week.”
