Are you walking away from the troubles in your life?

Friday is “catching up on emails” – day.
I am working from home and put some Craig David – Walking awayย on.

An email about the company doctor catches my attention.
I nearly forgot, but in two weeks time we are going to have a useless training about feeling worn out due to your job, how to deal with that, how you can prevent it, what are you rights salary wise and so on.
Apparently, that has happened quite a lot in the past few years.

We were asked to come up with questions so the company doctor can prepare his training.
Anonymous, right?


I have most definitely reached my limitation of stress levels due to work before, but never even considered visiting a doctor about it.
Certainly, not one that conspires with the company’s interests.

Usually way too late, but if my work gave me stress, I would “Walk away”.
So I’m with there with you, mr. David ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d make sure my CV was visible for anyone and everyone.
I’d apply day and night.
Staying away from a toxic workplace can only help for those few weeks.
But coming back, you’ll notice that nothing has changed.

By then, you should walk in a faster pace.
Run even, as fast as you can.

Have you ever been overworked? How did you deal with that?
Did you visit the company doctor, or did you take the walk with me and Craig? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Yes! I was being massively over stressed and had ptsd too and literally broke and went mental under the pressure… not fully tin foil hat mental but not a million miles from it. ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Mental health is important, I didnโ€™t understand for a long time.

  2. Ugh! I’m sorry you had to deal with that!
    Mental health is indeed important and often understood!
    Happy to hear things are going better now ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I hate those sessions that are supposed to “help” YOU, but they end up only annoying and stressing you out.
    I wouldn’t trust that doctor at all, either. But I know people that do. Good for them.
    What I would do is walk away and make more time for my blogging, which is a way better therapy option (like you said!).

  4. Yes. But again, I just seem to be the only one!

    Probably, if the company doctor wouldn’t tell me to put my laptop again, I would be blogging during the session ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Or I’d tell him I need my laptop to make notes, muhahah.

  5. Game the system! Say that he’s so interesting, you just HAVE TO write it down.
    I wish that worked for me. I feel like I’m in primary school when we have training, and are expected to participate, and maintain eye contact, and no electronics allowed.

  6. I’ve learned that I have a “no turning back” clause. Once I’m disenchanted with a job and it sticks within my mind completely, I have to leave. Also – why stay at a job where you’re unhappy? I’ve done that and it never works out. We spend more time at work than we do at home. It’s got to be worth it.
