Are you experiencing physical, emotional & psychological symptoms such as headaches, exhaustion, depression and anger? You may feel guilty and confused as to why you are having such strong reactions.

Living vicariously is wonderful when it's imagining you're in Tuscany holidaying with a friend. It's not so wonderful when you find yourself taking on the burdens and grief of the pets and people you deal with daily.
