“I want so badly to take time off. When I got this job, I was so excited to have "unlimited PTO". Well, while it's unlimited, there is NEVER a good time to use it. I am so scared to go on vacation and to come back to a mountain of work. It ruins the entire idea of vacation for me. Vacation is supposed to be relaxing, but with the nature of my work, and thanks to my anxiety, I'd never be able to enjoy it. I wish I could just go without any consequences.”
