I officially suck at taking PTO when the rest of the company does not (aka any time not the holidays). I can’t shut it down. I am taking calls. When I’m not taking calls, I’m thinking about work. I always thought I had good balance, but I’m really questioning that now. I’m supposed to be on vacation and I have a huge tension headache and my kids think I have zero control over my schedulr.

Feeling very burnt out. With work, and also personal things going on in my life right now.

Anyone else been in this scenario? Any advice?
