“I'm a teacher. I never used to be stressed about my job. I took a position teaching middle school last year and it sent me in a spiral. I was at my worst last year about this time. I would come home and take a few shots just to make the anxiety go away. I'm still at the same school this year even though I swore to myself last year I wouldn't be back. I'm going to that same dark, anxiety/depression-ridden place I was last year and I'm scared.”
