“I was facing some personal issues and challenges in my relationship with my husband. The level of stress and feeling of being overwhelmed took over for weeks. I was barely functioning. I did not want to get out of bed or go to work. I felt so drained and unable to concentrate. I lay awake at night and could not shut my brain off. It took me a couple of days to find the right time to call. As soon as I did, I knew I had made the right choice. The nurse that answered my call was so kind and did not rush me.I made sure to follow his guidance and recommendations and very quickly I started to notice a difference in how I was coping each day. It was not easy but I felt like I had support and I felt a lot better being able to talk with someone about how I was feeling. ” – A very happy HumanaCare plan member
