"Do you have any vacation days you can take? A nice break from work and home might be good for you. Maybe a nice Mancation? Just a thought.
I know how you feel. I've been feeling like that for a while here at my job. I'm just not motivated…"
"My wife is a paramedic/fire fighter (associates in para-medicine and fire science) - it took her about 17 months of schooling, and she worked while she got it.
