"As a millenial and a woman I am used to pushing myself, as I'm guessing most of us twenty-somethings and females are expected to. I ignored the sleeplessness and the signs of stress because I thought that's what I was supposed to do. I was a new mother, newlywed, and promoted to management at a job where I was working overtime. We each have a different set of life circumstances, but we can all relate to not getting enough sleep and having hectic and demanding schedules."
