Mental Exhaustion

see also Stress

Also referred to as nervous exhaustion or nervous breakdown, a catchall term not used by psychiatrists but meaningful to the ordinary person, signifying a sudden inability to cope, usually due to overwork or other forms of pressure. Just as ligaments and tendons can be stretched beyond their elastic limit, so can emotional and mental resources. Some people have more resilience and stamina, more ability to absorb Stress for longer periods, than others. If it takes very little to topple you into Anxiety or Depression, constitutional homeopathic treatment could help.
