Oh man, even that bit about just being able to reply "I'm tired" and not realising the depth of what was beneath that- that describes so much of my teen life: coming home, parents ask what's wrong, and I couldn't put it in any other words than "tired".

The last paragraph on the right.... The work journal. One of the absolute more important things Sarah ever did. Was a way to put something in a place to analyze later without it overwhelming her brain when she couldn't afford the distraction.

That's such a good idea. I'll definitely try it out when furlough ends & I'm back at work. After a year apart, there's bound to be some adjustment time when we all start working together again, and this sounds like a good tool to help navigate that.
