Is anyone dealing with extreme burnout right now? I know this isn't the time for work-life balance but oh wow! I don't think I have ever been this exhausted before. How is everyone else holding up?

I’m so sorry - your mental health is far more important. You sound like an extremely hard working - high performer. I’m sure other places would love to have you. Can you take a few sick days off (
for exhaustion and mental health - they don’t need the details) and just rest and spend a few hours updating your resume. Sometimes that can help just by knowing you’ve taken some time for yourself and you are taking steps to change the situation.


It’s so bad for me right now… I am literally on a ledge, and have no idea what to do. No option makes sense. I wen from, “it’s fine, I’m fine, everything is fine”, to… “I’m ready to give notice with no prospect and wait tables on an island”, in 24 hours. I’m sorry you’re struggling too, I have not answers, just tears, and apparently no compassion from leaders and a new counselor who should be, at a minimum, grateful for alllllllllllll my efforts and hard work trying to build better teams and market share, but all I get is, “can you make this pretty?” F this, my words, insight, experience, and exceptional technical value-add to clients is worth so much more, as they all tell me, not the new leaders I’m working with for the first time. I need out of my misery, now.

I am also struggling with the one day it’s fine to let me leave and figure it out

I’m struggling and thinking about changing my job every day

Aren't we collectively just sick of the lies? Now we learn Trumps oxygen level did fall. Yesterday he was doing just fine. Could be discharged as soon as tomorrow. Wtf.
You are sick and its okay to be on medication, its ok for your body to do things that are out of your control. My God, we can accept that he is a normal human being. Why try to portray him as some superhuman?


Vaidam Health review

Thought I’d share an amazing nugget I got from my therapist this week about how anxiety and depression is also tied to our nervous system. We tend to move up and down throughout these different stages within our nervous system, tied to physical symptoms of anxiety/depression. If you’re struggling with treatment resistant mental health issues, or just in general, Google “Vagus Nerve Exercise”. It helps reset your nervous system. Hope this can help someone else too!

Any information would be helpful.

Going to grow out my hair super long till end of next year for Covid-19, probably only cutting it after I go back to the office. I reduce risk by not getting a haircut, I get to put it in a bun and keep it away from heat and I'll be donating the 12 inches of growth to cancer wigs.
Convinced my hubby to do the same, man bun style.
