I had always prided myself on my emotional resilience. Always the one to put "the mask" on in order to smile, laugh and execute the day's objectives in a timely, effective manner in a way that made work feel NOT like work. But the end of 2020 finally got me.

I broke.

Badly.

I am a NHS mental health nurse; and here was I, one of those individuals who is supposed to have the most insight and knowledge of tools that can help keep my mental health stable and healthy. But I broke.
