I went wibble from stress 13 years ago and drugs did not help. Once I got out of the career I was in, I started to mend. I got a job in a school and found it brilliant fun. I have now retired but still get asked to help out with the occasional trips for Geography or History supervising youngsters.

The key is our decision making process. One has to choose to do no more than is reasonable. Taking on too much just burns us out more quickly. Learn to say "no" and mean it.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
