70% burns

Going by the article I’ve found from Mayo Clinic, I am quite sure the symptoms described had not been a figment of my imagination.

Do you find yourself being more cynical, critical and sarcastic at work?
NOT YET.
Have you lost the ability to experience joy?
YES. *work ONLY*
Do you drag yourself into work and have trouble getting started once you arrive?
YES.
Have you become more irritable and less patient with co-workers, customers or clients?
I ignore them.
Do you feel that you face insurmountable barriers at work?
YES.
Do you feel that you lack the energy to be consistently productive?
YES.
Do you no longer feel satisfaction from your achievements?
YES.
Do you have a hard time laughing at yourself?
NO. *Ok, so I’m still alive?*
Are you tired of your co-workers asking if you’re OK?
Nobody asked.
Do you feel disillusioned about your job?
NO. *so there’s hope still?*
Are you self-medicating — using food, drugs or alcohol — to feel better or to simply not feel?
1 Paracetamol EVERYDAY.
Have your sleep habits or appetite changed?
YES.
Are you troubled by unexplained headaches, neck pain or lower back pain
YES.

RESULT – a resounding 9/13 (70%) YES ?!

I wonder what they would say if I blow this up and stick this on my office computer screen while I attend a conference over the next 3 days.

Ok. Maybe I am not THAT BURNT YET. No?
