I feel the same way coming back from a long holiday makes you question things but once you get back in the groove I think it eases

Yea just pretend you are traveling for leisure. Enjoy some nice nights to yourself instead of spending it with the team to slowly ease back into it

Always had to re-enter after being off. It will get better but probably not until after the new year

Might be time to look for a local gig

Nope
