On the edge of a burnout

I've got a bad headache that won't go away. Maybe Tylenol or Advil will make it go away. But I don't want to end up like my officemate who pops 4 pills in one take.

I'm close to crashing and burning. Seriously. I've been thinking of working from home, but it hasn't happened yet. Some days, I want to leave the office early. Like yesterday, for instance. It didn't happen. Actually, I ended up staying late.

I want to take one day off. Just one day at least. But what I really want is to take off. Two weeks max. Away from the madness.

But my work ethic kicks in and I find myself back at the office. It's insane, this pace of work. We're not a big company, really. Everyone's swamped. We're all trying our best, but this is ridiculous. It's great to contribute in a growing company, but man, the last thing I want is to end up unglued, unhinged and unscrewed.
