I think I'm to the point of total burn out here at work. It's gotten to the point of slightly depressing me and it makes getting up in the morning all that more difficult. I go to work at which I have a lot to do but I can't find any motivation whatsoever. I used to like this kind of work too, I think I just need a break. My wife is telling me to take a leave of absence and try that out instead but I feel that's not going to cut it. Financially we can manage for some time even with paying our own health insurance during the time off. My only concern is trying to re-enter the job market after 6-12 months off. How would that look on a resume? Oh well! Anybody ever take a break from working.
