Under times of stress we usually revert to old, often dysfunctional, behaviors. Going to new behavior under stress really is a change.
I wish you and your W the best. I hope you help her keep in mind that she's valuable because she's a human being, not because someone pays her to do a job.
Even so, I hope her next job is better than the one that went away.

So sorry you are going through more difficulties. It's always something, isn't it? The only thing we can control is how we react and behave to the things we encounter. And it's so nice to hear how your W is turning to you, recognizing her stress levels and seeking help from IC, and overall choosing better coping methods.
Peace and blessings to you all.
