    It's All Too Much

    It's All Too Much

    We are back with another episode with Dr. James and Dr. Robin and they are discussing how the world just feels like "too much" to handle at times lately. We are all experiencing some feelings of uncertainty, overwhelm, and how there's hardly room to take a breath before the next big issue feels all-consuming. Politics, Covid, inflation, the war in Ukraine...so many unknowns creating feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and just not knowing how to handle it all. Dr. James and Dr. Robin help us feel like we're not alone in these feelings, but also give advice on how to get through this unique period of time.
