How to deal with professional burnout
December 6, 2010 7:49 AM Subscribe
I have been suffering a chronic illness, including dizziness, indigestion, and severe depression resulting from overwork.
I have been seeing a doctor for over 2 years now, but to no avail.
Has anyone had a similar experience, and recovered?
Any kind of advice will be appreciated!

I have worked at my current company very hard (up to 400hrs/month) and think that I have contributed pretty much.
(I received a MVP award that only 5% of the emplyees are awarded)
Though my work has been fulfilling, it has sucked all the energy out of me.
Currently, I can't get myself to go out for any kind of recreation.
(I used to love playing tennis, golf, skiing, etc.)
By the way, I am male, 32, single, and work as an programmer.
Thanks in advance!
