    Unfortunately this is becoming an increasing problem as our lives get busier. Many employees don’t only have their own health issues to contend with. More and more find themselves up several times each night to care for young children or elderly parents. Those caring for elderly relatives often are not entitled to any benefits or care support and have to continue for years. I’m getting a lot of patients in my practice with chronic exhaustion and burnout and fortunately I’m usually able to help them to feel better despite their circumstances.
