Sometimes it's too much of one diagnosis or another, like seeing too many depressed people in a day can (HAS TO) make a doc a little depressed.
Or maybe there are simply too many borderlines out there, or too many traumatizing stories. Borderlines can have therapists all up in arms, worried about themselves, their families and personal harm, worried about others who have to deal with them, still more worries about suicide gestures and occasional success.
So real estate has tremendous appeal, okay? Not for me, frankly, but it does seem to be the choice for lots of other therapy docs. I kind of love my job, you know that, and I balance the types of folks I see every day, lay lots of responsibility for their welfare back on them.
But what about BLOGGERS? Do BLOGGERS burn out? They write day after day, week after week. They go nuts when they go on vacation, terrified their ratings will drop in Technorati, have others blog for them in their place!
So do they? Do they burn out, writing, writing, writing, day and night, organizing, editing, re-editing, reading other blogs, redesigning their websites, losing precious template symbols that trash the site (temporarily), commenting to others and to those who write to them, deep into the early hours of the morning, bleary-eyed, half awake the next day, manic, full of words, crazy.
Do they burn out? Do they?
