You Are Never Alone

November 13, 2020

Sometimes it feels like we are managing all the varied aspects of our life in a healthy and productive way: family, work, medical needs, caring for ourselves. And oftentimes, we are.

But even the most balanced of lives can be jolted by a new added pressure or responsibility; and new challenges can arise while chronic ones that were under control might resurface. One of the most essential ideas that we at Amudim try to help our clients and the community internalize is that no one human can manage everything alone, all of the time, and no one should have to; we all need support. And when we help someone find it, it can make the difference in bringing that person back to a place of equilibrium and peace.

Leah*, a 50 year-old woman dealing with acute feelings of anxiety and depression, reached out to us for guidance. She has a diagnosis of bi-polar disorder and takes medication regularly, and until recently had been doing quite well. But her husband had contracted COVID and been put on a respirator; she was running her household single-handedly and feeling overwhelmed by the additional responsibilities resting solely on her shoulders, as well as concerns regarding her husband’s health. Leah desperately needed someone to talk to, and was seeking an older, frum female therapist located near her home. After spending several hours researching qualified health professionals that would suit Leah’s needs, our case manager found a therapist who was a perfect fit.

We are happy to report that after beginning weekly sessions several weeks ago, Leah has already reported back to her case manager that she is feeling optimistic about her progress. She is getting back to herself as she works with her therapist to develop coping mechanisms and sort through her emotional turmoil.

People every day are going through life events and challenges that none of us could begin to understand. We are here to provide guidance and resources for whatever crisis you or a loved one might be facing. Please don’t ever hesitate to call us anytime.
