Our expert says:
I've been in this sort of situation, and understand what you mean --- many organizations are only too ready to take advantage of able people. Is there an HR person or dept you could discuss this with ? Or is there a boss who would listen understandinglyif you described your feelings calmly, in the way you have expressed them here ?
You probably DO need and deserve a break --- have you asked for one ? Who is it who says this is impossible ? IS it perhaps you yourself who assumes it to be impossible, or do they formally turn down your formal requests for leave ? Have you been over-working so routinely they have come to expect it, or have they actually asked you to do all that extra work ?
And before discussing it with the relevant people, think through what you actually want. Some time off ? Normal working hours ? Leave ? More recognition of all you do ?
