Perhaps your stress at work is caused by deadlines, as mine is. It's amazing how many people procrastinate on given projects, only to let others pull the rabbit out of their proverbial hat. In my case, after going through radiation and chemo while working every chance I could, so I would appear much more normal than I felt, I didn't experience any gratitude for all the troubles I endured. I feel immensely let down by my employer. I wouldn't come to the colon club, if I my thoughts were not always interrupted with cancer, and the thought of recurrence. As I cannot think of a viable means of support at this time, every day sometimes feels like an eternity, before I can end it. I don't know if that is just plain tired, or depressed, but I am exhausted on most days. I envy your decision, and may you be blessed with the answers, of which you are searching.
