“She kept quiet, but she had planted the seed.
Interestingly I did not talk much about work during the appointment, so her question stirred my thoughts. Why did she think it was work-related? I started to look at my daily routine. I was able to recognize where I needed to set boundaries at work. At home, I delegated some simple chores to the kids. I must say kids are excellent learners if given the right directions. Small steps and changes made my life much more manageable. My somatic symptoms went away along with my stress.
I owe it to my PCP for recognizing what I was struggling with and bringing it to the surface for me to address it.”
Sirosh Masuood is a psychiatrist.
