Mental Health in Grad-School

2021.09.16 18:06 Miserable_Amoeba8766 Mental Health in Grad-School

Hey all,
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about people struggling with their mental health during grad school and wanted to share my story/experience. I must note that I’m not a physician and am strictly speaking from my own experiences.
I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for over 10 years. I was in my undergraduate/b.s. the first time I sought our professional help through therapy. Firstly, if you’re currently struggling one of the hardest things is getting the motivation and willpower to go to a therapist. Even more so if it’s financially taxing. Additionally, it’s very likely you won’t “click” with the first person you go to see. If you do that’s awesome though. It took me until my first year of my masters program to find someone who I connected with. I spent years in therapy and doing the general suggestions to help alleviate my symptoms (e.g., exercise, mindfulness, etc.) and I still had major depression.
For me depression was with me every day. I would wake up wishing I was sleeping to just escape it all. If you’ve seen Bo Burnham’s inside essentially it was like the depression bits he included. 9/10 days I had symptoms and only 1-5 days a year of feeling normal. A the entire time my brain told me I wasn’t “depressed” enough because I kept going. So there was no way I needed medication. Nearly a year ago I finally convince myself it was time to see someone about medication.
I had been in weekly therapy for two years with no significant changes. I decided to use the winter break as a time to try out medications because I knew many of them came with initial side-effects and often you had to try more than one to find the one that worked for you.
I started off with one that targets dopamine and norepinephrine receptors. This came with pretty gnarly side-effects for two weeks but it also came with a huge blessing. I felt normal and so sad that I had lived 10 years of my life in such a dark state. It made me realize I needed medicine, but perhaps not that one. It took two more tries to find the right one.
Essentially I thought I was a horrible grad student who couldn’t do the work or handle the pressure and hated my master’s program. In reality I was clinically depressed and needed medication. I am now currently in my first semester of my PhD program, been on medication that works for 9 months, in therapy, exercising, and loving life. Don’t let imposter syndrome stop you from getting the help you need! It can be life-changing.
TL;DR: Grad school is tough and struggling with mental health makes it worse. Don’t be afraid to get help (therapy, medication, etc.) it can change your life!

A little after 3:18:00 in the live stream last night, Toby confirmed that the drawing in the unused classroom is indeed NOT Gerson, but Squidward, as seen in the classical art icon Bold and Brash. Less importantly, he said that Alvin drew it for his dad, Gerson

The title pretty much sums It all up. WKBRL was shut down and that might be one big, huge thing for us Theorists.
Although, I'm kind of shocked. This... This Is weird. I'm not sure how to react.
Ah well. Stay tuned, more than ever.

Hey friends 👋🏻
I’m looking for some restrictive biology electives to take in spring 2022. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’d prefer something that’s not too hard bc I’ll be taking Orgo 2, Organic evolution, Marine bio, & studying for the MCAT.
I heard medical botany wasn’t too bad but I would love some other suggestions 🥺💛✨
Thank you ☺️✨

2021.09.16 18:06 bearcatalum17 More hours = higher hourly rate?

I work with a family and my contract states my total weekly hours are 46. It typically ranges from 46-50 depending on the week and whatnot. Is it typical that when you work that many hours per week you get a higher hourly rate? I know what the typical nanny in my area makes but I’m just wondering, should my pay be above average because my job demands many hours? am I just burnt out and tired of being paid $17/ hour with no OT pay?
