Fatigue due to burn-out: a burnt-out feeling
A shortage of a few chemical substances in the brain (neurotransmittors) ensure that you lose your zest of life, that you get exhausted and that you're no longer rested and sometimes even that you have poor sleep. The exhaustion accumulates. You feel like you are losing your grip and you feel tired and empty all the time. An excess of adrenaline or the stress hormone ensures that your body and mind are working too hard and LItterally and figuratively get exhausted. You're burnt-out and don't understand why. You feel tired, you get irritated and you are having a hard time. You'll have complaints about... Eventually, your unpleasant behaviour towards others will become aggressive. Your fatigue inclines.
Fatigue because you ignore yourself
How do you become fatigue? Well, sometimes you ignore yourself too much, which causes that you don't draw boundaries towards others anymore and don't stress what you can handle and what not. And eventually you will handle too much and your system will overload and keep working until you collapse. You're mentally burnt-out and in need of a vacation, while your mind tells you that you should keep working. Because you have less energy, you'll have a mental burn-out and you will need a vacation. But your mind will tell you that you should work until you're finished.
