I am on the verge of burning out. I don’t know if it is because of my adrenal glands malfunctioning once again. Or if I am just overworking myself.
The main Burnout symptoms are;
- Lack of sleep
- An increasingly cynical outlook on life and work
If anyone read my previous post “Shaky Mental Health” you would know that my mental health is a bit on the bad side.
So as it is the anxiety is high. My arms are a huge show for that. (To see the images just look at my previous post).
I am getting headaches almost everyday now. Especially the tension headaches. Sometimes it releases a bit of pressure when my neck cracks but the headache constantly remains.
Lack of sleep. Well….that should speak for itself. Basically I am on no sleep schedule.
Fatigue does come from a lack of sleep.
When the adrenal glands are affected in any way. The fatigue becomes almost unbearable.
Most who burnout, is due because they don’t take care of themselves. I am sadly one of those many people. I rely on fast food to get me some energy throughout the day. If it wasn’t for fast food I would not be eating almost all day. Which is also very unhealthy.
For the most part, I have been in training of fixing that. I do want to get better and I am eating more at home. But again, there are some days where this is nearly impossible.
Most of us don’t exercise properly. I don’t remember the last time I went to the gym or even had a workout that made me sweat (that was not on the ice).
— Hell I have not even touched the ice in two weeks.
I over work. And don’t do anything fun. Too organized and cycled. Like same stuff on the list everyday.
I have been burnt out before. I have been put on medical leave more then once for a burnout.
I am seeing the Warning Signs flash before my eyes. I am working on changing things in my life to avoid the symptoms from flaring.
