Can I just not think?

Today at work was stressful at times, overwhelming at the end of the day, and has left me feeling sad/discouraged.  Teaching is  hard job, but being bipolar with OCD and teacher makes it doubly hard.  By the end of the day, I tend to feel like my brain is mush.  I want to go home and do nothing but veg out.  Does anyone else feel this way?  Any suggestions for working but managing stress from work while having a mental illness?

  1. I have bipolar disorder and OCD as well. I work with seniors. I really enjoy it and love seniors but it is mentally exhausting for me at times. I take my medications as prescribed. see a psychologist regularly and spend a lot of time alone when I get home. Not good but I need to not think for a little while sometimes after work. My psychologist has really helped me a lot in balancing my life.
