Yes!!! Vacation from work.
But what do i do now??
No clients to see. No emails to answer, no phone calls from caseworkers, supervisors parents… no crises.
Working in the field of mental health is not an easy task. You become consumed with assisting others with their journey to wellness. There are days when you become fully overwhelmed and you just want the work day/week to end.
Then comes vacation time and you realize, there will be days with no client’s problem for you to deal with…no crises….here comes the intrusive thoughts…time to deal with your own stuff…dealing with your own challenges. Relationships, expenses, family stuff, need to do’s want to haves…SITTING WITH YOUR OWN THOUGHTS……agh! Back to work….comfortable chaos thats not your own.
