For my working class with Chronic illness: how long does it usually take you to feel burnout? I haven't had a break from work longer than two days since november and I'm starting to wonder if I'm suffering from burn out on top of my illnesses

      It depends on how hectic the week is and how many hours I'm working. I can feel burnt out in as little as a week if it's an overstimulating environment (like the grow house I used to work at) but sometimes it takes months. I usually notice because my brain feels like an overheated windows 98 pc

      I 100% suffer from burnout in my job and it doesn’t help that I work long hours 10+ with no breaks each day. I am looking for a new job or something part time because this is not feasible for my health anymore. You can try other things like setting time for meditation/workouts/cooking meals/journaling that can ease my symptoms sometimes

      Thank y'all on the input, it's helping me determine what I gotta do to take care of myself especially as the busy month comes to my job 💕

      I don’t usually feel it until about a week after it’s actually started to manifest. So I miss all the key signs and end up in a bad place.

      i would actually die if that were me… im 16 for reference but when i had a job that i went to like a couple days a week, i would be in so much pain from simply standing and using my arms after only like 2 hours. you shouldnt push yourself like that in my opinion… you have a valid excuse for taking days off and you should use it. do your bosses know about your condition?
