Just take a sick leave?

Your duty is to yourself before your team/company. If you need a holiday, your teams staffing issues don't cause you to need it any less.

You must have some kind of personal time off, but I guess your deeper question is that you don't want the team to fall apart which is super fair. You are going to have to level with the fact that there is going to be less productivity for the team while you are out but try to work out some kind of plan with your manager for how to cover for while you are gone, even if it's just a few days.

My experience at Equifax. I was there for less than 6 months. During that time my manager yelled at me in front of everyone twice, I worked every holiday and weekend from October-March. My training was awful and I was put under a microscope. Every little thing I did wrong would be turned into a big deal while I watched others make bigger mistakes. My manager would tell me one thing, while my supervisor would say another (I was a contractor but that line gets crossed daily at Equifax)

Going back to work on Monday and I really want to quit and take time off. I feel burnt out and not interested in doing advertising/design anymore.

I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.
