Thank you.

So here is the thing. I have no plan or strategy. I don`t know anything about likes and algorithm For me over 100 k views is a lot.

The last few days have been a bit crazy. So many people have messaged me that it is almost overwhelming. The stories have been personal and heart breaking. Many say they cannot speak about it publicly.

Many say they cry reading the stories or they started writing their own stories. Maybe just for themselves.

For me it is the same. I just sit down and type. I speak about my own life and my own struggles as a full-time scientist and a mom of 2.

Writing all of this can be uncomfortable or even painful at times. But often times change does not happen without that.

I would like to see some change in the (academic) work environment. I would like to see that people are supported and that is ok to speak about mental health, child loss, miscarriage, gender, religion, racism, grief, loss, infertility, abortion, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, PTSD and so much more.

I know it is hard. I can relate. But I try to do my best.

Thank you so much for your trust and all your kind messages.
