Overheard at work

One of the things I love about my job is the way we're very open when discussing our own mental health. After spending so much time trying to decrease the stigma associated with mental illness and help our clients overcome it, we're pretty fearless when it comes to talking about our own issues. But sometimes it makes for some odd conversations in the breakroom.

Social worker: "I guess it's just part of my illness talking. I worry too much about making sure my job gets done right."
Secretary: "You're great at your job! I think the problem is you worry about the wrong things."
"What do you mean?"
"Have you seen the yahoos who want to be President this year? Now that's something to worry about!"
