Jane: He's been pressuring me to see them for a long time. I have also been pressuring myself. It's just not that easy when you're not feeling well.
(He = Jane's ex-husband)
(Them = Jane's and her ex-husband's children)
Context: Jane has had and is having a depression so she hasn't seen her children a lot as she has been suffering.
Question: Can I use "for a long time" here even though Jane has seen her children a few times (but far from enough) since she got the depression?
