Tasha was starting to feel overwhelmed all the time. It was no longer just her high-stress job that made her feel like she was drowning in tasks and responsibilities. It was her home life, too. Her aged, chronically ill mother had moved in with her and her husband, and Tasha was feeling the burden of being her mom’s primary caregiver.
The presence of her mother and her demands had started to take a toll on Tasha’s relationship with her husband. They never seemed to get quality time alone together. On the rare occasions when their schedules overlapped and they could share a meal, Tasha and her husband spent the time arguing about finances or Tasha’s mother. And though Tasha’s work had let her work remotely for a while so she could be home with her mom, they wanted her to return to the office.
Everything just felt like too much to Tasha. She knew that she needed to find better coping strategies for her stress and anxiety, but she didn’t feel like she had the time or the money to see a professional therapist. What should she do?
