I’ve really been feeling especially fatigued recently. Concurrently, I’ve been very busy with building my caseload of online clients.
I always try to be “on” for the individuals whom I see, but I’ll admit that this is very challenging. I’m dealing with such a wide variety of issues and concerns: eating disorders, suicidal ideation, infidelity, low self-esteem, strained relationships, unemployment, substance abuse, sexual trauma, chronic illness, increased anxiety, etc.
I was definitely looking for greater variety in terms of the clinical issues with which I had been dealing. I certainly received it.
So, I’m thinking that I’ll follow my very own advice. I’ll schedule periodic rest periods, as well as time to pursue my artistic interests.
