Had to quit a very successful career because of extra long hours and demands of the position. The doctor actually told me to either quit or die. I loved my job but it didn’t love me. I was in hospital at least every 3 months. EMT’s were at my home weekly because my levels would drop so low I would either pass out or simply not wake when sleeping.
