Does anyone feel genuinely happy outside of work but then get severely depressed during busy season?

Busy season was effectively “designed” to make you depressed. You don’t see the sun, don’t see your friends and family, are constantly stressed, don’t get enough sleep, eat crappy take-out/delivery every day, don’t have time to exercise, constantly have to deal with clients who assume you’re stupid or out to get them, etc etc. My breaking point was a 6-month busy season after which I finally decided I couldn’t keep doing it to myself for the sake of my mental health, my physical health, and my relationships, and I’ve never looked back.

Is it bad to switch to someone else at his company..?
