Hi, Does anyone else here have, or know, any other teachers who struggle w/depression and anxiety? I do, and they've created a lot of problems for me. It's hard getting up and preparing for each day while your stomach is upset, you feel lousy and irritable. I want to do my best at school but the stress and physical symptoms keep me down. Many times I've taught while having a low-grade headache, chills, and upset stomach. It wears me down and has made me consider looking into a career change. For now I'm looking into teaching jobs since my last one was a one-year position, but I'm hesitant about it. I would appreciate anyone here who could comment on this issue and how to deal with it (I think it's more prevalent among teachers than people care to admit). Thank you.
