Thank you so much for getting this discussion going. For years I have found my identity tied up in my work, and I often have the impression that I am alone. This discussion has affirmed that I am not. I don't know if this has come up in the discussion or comments today, but Workaholics Anonymous is a real organization (though some assume it's a joke) and it has been immensely helpful for me as I've navigated layoffs, career changes, etc. A person can actually be physically addicted to work, with the adrenaline rush that comes with continually being over-stressed. Being aware of this has changed my approach to work, and, consequently, has changed the rest of my life for the better. http://www.workaholics-anonymous.org/
