USP - can you get away for a break? I had a really bad year a long time ago.
I'd worked my arse off double shifting and nights, everything was getting out of focus. Drugs didn't do much good, and I had the wife kids and mortgage to worry about. I found a place on a remote island where I went for six weeks (family came too) - after that I got together again.
It wasn't a very flash place but it was private, and the 'phone had an 'off' switch. Groceries were delivered by the daily ferry. I didn't have to talk to anyone or tell them what to do.
My cousin in Canada has a house on an island in Georgia Sound. He goes there when he needs to retreat from the World. Works for him too.
I guess it's a form of practical disengagement therapy.
