Taking care of you

We are certainly in a weird, unexpected time with this new Covid 19 pandemic. Everyone is on edge and anxious with the uncertainty and life disruptions, understandably so.

Just the other day I had a patient call me saying they were feeling very anxious and depressed and thought they needed to talk to somebody on the phone. Since it was late, I directed her to call a suicide prevention number until she could connect with her primary medical doctor, and followed up with her family. Here are some helpful numbers if you or anyone you knows needs help. (CDC link)
