As we socially distance ourselves to avoid further catastrophe in the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us are suffering silently when it comes to our mental health. Our nation is currently facing a Zoloft shortage and nearly 50% of Americans have anywhere from a mild to severe level of depression. Beyond feeling helpless, many who suffer from depression and anxiety are doing so with an added dose of shame: I shouldn't feel this way, at least I'm still alive, it could be so much worse, all I'm being asked is to stay at home, etc. Elizabeth Miller of Elizabeth Miller Therapy helps us understand why this kind of self-talk is hurting us and helps us unpack the shame that is preventing many of us from doing what we need to do to for ourselves in a time of immense emotional struggle.
