Stress and stress-induced depression hit many knowledge workers, and yet it is still a taboo. “I am stressed” has become something we hear every day, and it has almost become prestigious to say so; it shows that we are busy, important people. On the other hand, it is a bit embarrassing to be really stressed and not being able to handle it.
The sad thing is that when it comes to the people, who are really stressed, we don’t hear it. We do not see it; we do not talk about it.
