No but I dream of doing it all the time. I just feel like my anxiety would be worse if I let work pile up bc it's not going anywhere.

Yes. Makes the anxiety worse as I spend all day freaking out about how unreliable I am due to mental illness, which makes my anxiety even worse than it was before I took the day off. Vicious cycle.

If I’m really depressed I’ll try and work from home so I don’t start self sabotaging and burning bridges.

Yes!!!! I take these often bc my co-workers drive me nuts!

I’m looking if a certain dentist accepts my dental via EY’s Better You “Find a network provider”. If the dentist doesn’t show up, that that mean the dentist doesn’t take insurance or that insurance doesn’t work with that dentist? Meaning if I wanted to ask if my dental insurance would be accepted, would I first ask the dentist in question or get on a call with my insurance provider?

Booz folks. How is the life of gov contractors? I might end up moving over for a contract, but it seems like benefits are lacking. E.g. A friend of mine pays for her own health insurance.

I am starting to question my existence in this world. I have a nice job, decent salary, i work out and eat healthy, maintain my health, read 3 to 4 books every month, dont have any personal commitments (single), in my early 30s and things cant be any better. Of course with the exception that i had a real bad break-up with my fiancé 6 months ago. And i dont have any symptoms of depression, but there are days when i just feel like what is all this for?

I just had an employee tell me they are on the verge of quitting due to burnout- actually going to quit but was told to talk to HR for options (we don't have any in place). The manager wants to keep them as they are one of our best employees. Any recommendations on how to help alleviate burnout when the cause is from customers rather than the company? Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?
