i love my job so much...i enjoy what i'm doing. this is the job that i've been longing since i graduated in college. i spent most of my time with it. But..i'm too tired and stressed. i want to take a leave but there's no chance because of so many projects lined up. i don't even know the feeling of having enough sleep...my head and body were often aching. i want to take a long rest but seems like it's impossible. what do you think is the best thing to do? is it still right to love my job that much? now, i'm a little con fuse of what to do...do i need to give up? please give me some advise on this?..i need your opinion? thank you.

If i were you ,i will stick to do the job.Because you love the job even it is too tire .I think we have a lot of time to do many things not only the job.When you tire ,you can have a rest.If you too tire to work,it is no effection.So whatever you have many much work to work out,when you tire,please take a rest although just only a liitl time.If you absence from work,you can't make sure that you can find another job which you love.So just to have a time to relax.

In another post you mentioned that sometimes you don't get to come home because of all the work. This is wrong. I believe if you are not careful you will reach burnout...then the job will be gone. You cannot continue to give and give at work, there has to be time for you to replenish what you give out or you will have nothing left to give. Is your time management at fault or is your workload too big? I think you need to talk to your boss. Or maybe talk to your chemist or doctor first...maybe your diet is inadequate and you need a vitamin and/or mineral supplement. I hope everything is better for you soon.

I also feel the same way sometimes. This is because I'm passionate about my work that I give it more than 100% if possible. I also love my teaching job and I think I'd still be doing this for many years to come. For me, there's no other job that I'd like to be doing. Of course, with fewer sleep comes stress. I try my best to keep my job tasks restricted to weekdays even if I lose some sleep, then keep my weekends as time for myself or for some relaxation/enjoyment. Even if we love our job, we still need to stop and rest for a while to re-charge our bodies. I would advise you to find a hobby that you like and insert this into your busy schedule. For me, this is important. All work and no fun makes us dull, and I know you know this. MyLot is also one of my stress-busters. Happy myLotting, friend!

I know how you feel. It's happening to me too. I love my job and what I do, but lately I noticed that I was feeling too tired...too stressed. The job that once I felt I should be paying to do instead of being paid, seemed to be just too much lately. SOmetimes we just need a break and things go back to normal. I have been teaching for over 20 years, but this summer when I was offered the chance for a different kind of work within the school I accepted. I have been busy in many projects and curriculum plans but I am resting at the same time from the stress I was feeling inside the classroom lately. This is not really quitting and starting a new career for me, since next school year I can go back to teaching if I want to. MY decision was more to provide a brake that would allow me to just rest a bit. And it's working.

a job that is too tiring but you love it? oh come on! maybe it's just your mind set. you do love the job and yet its tiring but if you could only set your mind that "i love my job and i will have fun doing it, i will not be that 'tired' person like before" think positively. i know you can do that. maybe you just think that it is too tiring because of some emotional problems. go joodzki6! you can do it! i know you can! :)
