In the middle of the night you start talking about the latest project in your sleep.
You dream about actually doing your job rather than something weird that could never possibly happen. (Who really wants to dream about working at work!? At least it should be something hilarious. . .about someone else of course.)
You lay awake at night crunching numbers in your head.
You can’t remember the last time you went outside.
You see your spouse and ask when their hair got long/they grew a full-blown beard.
Your eye twitches at the thought of going out with friends.
You are a year behind on your children’s age.
You forget what your home bathroom looks like, because for some reason you can only remember the beige/white wallpaper or multiple stalls.
Your closet contains nothing except work clothes.
Your dog growls at you thinking you are a stranger.
The dog sniffs you and continues to think you are a stranger.
If you have any of these symptoms, I suggest eating lots of chocolate, drinking lots of coffee, try to eventually take a vacation, laugh a little more, and god speed. Oh, and working out might actually really help. Or so TV says so.
By the way, I am not a doctor and have no medical opinion whatsoever.
