A very warm welcome to you here at Healing From Burnout. My name is Lisa Callinan , I am in Brisbane, Australia, and I am the person behind this website.
I experienced a very intense burnout in 2010 (in my case severe adrenal fatigue) and it is my desire to share my experiences and the many resources I found over these past few years that helped me on my healing journey.
Does any of this resonate with you?
Are you are feeling overworked, underappreciated and stressed? Are you giving to everyone else’s needs to the detriment of your own needs? Is your health being compromised and is your tank running on empty? If so, you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue caused by an extended period of mental, emotional or physical stress. Some of the symptoms include extreme fatigue and lethargy, hypoclycemia (crashing blood sugars), digestive disturbances, weight gain, thyroid dysfunction, wired at night and completely worn out upon waking in the morning.
Healing From Burnout provides valuable resources and tools to help you reclaim your health and vitality, and to live a life that is authentic and meaningful for you.
In October 2010 my life came to a crashing halt, just about everything had fallen apart (for an end result of better) and my body had crashed under the strain of the previous years, my adrenals were literally burnt out, they were exhausted.
I had spent many years doing things I didn’t want to do, and spending my life in situations I didn’t want to be in. The result was an extraordinary amount of stress over many years, which eventually took a very large toll on me. I was however, eventually able to end the relationship that I was in, and end the business we were in together which resulted in liquidation and bankruptcy. This whole process quite literally brought me to my knees. I was exhausted on every level. My adrenals were overtaxed and overused and my health had become severely compromised.
The great thing however was that what wasn’t working in my life had now been removed and I had a fresh slate with which to begin my life over. What began was my healing journey.
My desire here is to share my experiences and the many resources I gathered along the way to help you heal from your own burnout, or even better to avoid burnout, altogether.
The good news is that healing from burnout is absolutely possible. As you set out on a new path, one in which you are your authentic self, your life has the opportunity to expand into the most wondrous of possibilities. I come very much from a spiritual perspective as I know without a doubt that for healing of the physical to occur we must embrace healing on a mental, emotional and spiritual level as well.
The global community here at Healing From Burnout is growing rapidly and I welcome you on this healing journey.
I look forward to this journey with you.
All my love
Disclaimer: I am not a medical doctor on this topic of adrenal fatigue or adrenal exhaustion, I am however coming from the position of my own personal experience with this and the largely unaccepted medical community explanation for the myriad of symptoms I was experiencing. This was my experience, and your experience may or may not be similar. Always check with your medical doctor if you are in any doubt about what you are feeling physically.
