Feeling burnout

Time Spent- 30m

I feel so burned out, mentally I just feel like I’m relied upon too much, especially at home. A family member has become ill over the past year which adds to my feelings of burnout. Even though they are in a nursing home, I still manage all the finances and other decisions on top of things for myself and my spouse. My spouse also doesn’t help out much around the house which gives me more feelings of just wanting to collapse wherever I am standing. I want to seek counseling but the job I have looks down on those types of things even though they say they are supportive of it. I know the truth, they would put me on the chopping block just for trying to seek help, I’ve seen it happen before. I am grateful for the things I have and I turn to Jesus to thank him everyday but I just can’t shake these feelings.
