All your life you have been able to carry more than others. You’ve always considered it your superpower. You can keep the house perfect, get the kids in all the right activities, keep your career going strong, chair the school committee, run a marathon, and, hey, even throw together family dinners.
Lately, you can’t seem to hold it all together like you once did before life changed. You have tried to run from the feelings by putting in longer hours at the ofﬁce. But nothing seems to ease the anxiety.

You have been experiencing inner turmoil and anxiety.
You have been having a hard time as to who you can talk to about this, because most people you know just don’t “understand” your nature.
