      experienced burn out....Total burnout and it is because
      of the passion.  I am all for shutting down  (difficult as it is) AND IT IS....because there is nothing worse than an activist inable to do what they do best.  It is like a jogger not able to run, or a bird not able to fly.   The burnout hurts and one has to build those blankets or walk the beach for shells and constantly put the brain on neutral for a little bit to become more effective.  I know this for an absolute fact.

      No body wants to listen to a matyr with a loss of purpose.

      Good diary !
