This year is different. My mind didn't stop for summer break. I'm developing a short temper, I'm worrying about what if scenarios on daily life events. My son threw a bouncy ball at me this week and I shouted and threw my fist into the ground in rage. I couldn't control myself. He is a one year old.
I made an appointment with my doctor. I'm seeking help from my family, friends and clergy.
While you need to be concerned with your students and the start of school, please do not neglect your mental health. Band is important, but your mind is more important.
Seek help if you are struggling.
