    In all honesty, I haven’t figured out what to do that works for me quite yet. I don’t believe I’ve experienced enough stress at work for it to be able to count as ‘compassion fatigue.’ If I have and just haven’t identified it as such, I think talking your feelings and thoughts out with a coworker or your Director can be very helpful. They can help provide you the space/leeway to recharge at least a little while at work, and then it’s up to you to finish taking care of yourself when you get home.
