Saw something similar elsewhere - I am getting absolutely burned out and it's starting to make me a little less focused and on the ball. I am not making actual mistakes, but I missed something the other day that I should have found on the first visit, not the third. Any advice for me?

Move to Costa Rica


Can you tell us what health care is like in Costa Rica?


It sounds like you need a break. It is very easy in this industry to get sucked into over working. Don't do it. Take care of yourself first and then you can better do your job.


if you feel like you are getting burned out, you probably are and it is time to take some time to Netflix and chill. No shame or blame in that.


Take a two week vacation

Sometimes it is ok to do less, refer, and delegate. Sometimes we are slaves to our own desires. Are there some expenses that you can cut down on in your life? Do you have to work so hard? Could you work less? Could you switch to contract work? I have done contract work for 2 years. I work as little or as much as I need to.

Some people seem tied down to their jobs because of health insurance and other benefits. Explore private health insurance companies and see what plans they have to offer. (Note: Healthcare insurance is not as costly as you might think.)

I hope you find this helpful.

Are you taking care of the basics in terms of sleep, hydration, food, physical activity? It's hard with a hectic schedule, but sometimes stuff like not eating or drinking all day contributes to fatigue and is fairly fixable by doing things like pre-packing lunches on the weekend, bringing a bit bottle of water and drinking from it at scheduled intervals, stuff like that.

I have multiple offers from a variety of private contractors and I can’t make up my mind on who I want to work for. They all seem very amazing but that’s just from the perspective of the recruiters, which are doing their job. I want some of y’all’s opinion. So here are the companies:

Lockheed Martin
Raytheon Technologies
Northrop Grumman
General Dynamics

FYI I’m being considered for Cybersecurity, IT, and or Cyber Networks related jobs.

Question, I have visited with a ENT and a neurosurgeon. I have a problem with a phantom smell in my nose that comes and goes almost daily. I can also taste it in my mouth. It is very hard to explain, and I can’t seem to get any answers. Does anyone have any advice or thoughts about what could be causing this and what steps I should take to resolve this issue? It’s been ongoing for about two years and is very aggravating.
