Just a thought today as it popped into my head.
I, myself, have suffered from the above state at various times in my life. You know the feeling....if one more person asks you to do one more thing...you will fear you will explode from all the stress.
I believe women suffer from this more than men do. In fact, I just came across a term for this condition..HUMAN GIVER SYNDROME. I know....everything must have a clinical name as of late but it is simply giving, giving, giving until you have nothing left to give.
Right now, with so many women working remotely from home I would imagine that BURNOUT has reared its ugly head in many a family.
With mom home, it is so very easy to come to her for every little thing..unless mom has been able to set some very strict boundaries, and if you have, good for you.
I no longer have children in my home...just my sweet partner and myself so I can pretty much do as I please most of the time. But I do remember what BURNOUT felt like.
Are you suffering from HUMAN GIVER SYNDROME and if so how do you cope with it?
