TW: MENTAL HEALTH, DEPRESSION
Dealing with depressive episodes can be incredibly difficult. When you search for images of “depression” you’ll likely see an attractive white person crying or sitting with their head in their hands in an elegant black and white photo.

“Openly talking about the financial strain of childcare and implying that your nanny and her absurd monetary demands are directly contributing to said strain is an unfair stress to level on an employee — you wouldn’t bully a plumber or an electrician to provide free or cheap labour because renovation is expensive.”
