Medical condition

We've all experienced the feeling of "burning the candle at both ends"; intense stress, rising heart rate and endless exhaustion. 

This experience of fatigue and depression as a result of anxiety and lack of control is now formally recognised by the medical community: Burnout is now an official workplace syndrome.

The workplace disorder is now classified as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed,” according to WHO.

Burnout is now included in the International Classification of Diseases, the World Health Organisation’s handbook which helps medical providers in terms of diagnosis.

Initial reports characterised the classification as a medical condition, but WHO clarified that it's an 'occupational phenomenon'.

The common symptoms of burnout include energy depletion or fatigue, increased medical distance from one's job or feelings of negativity or cynicism related to one's employment. Reduced professional efficacy is also included in the list.

The handbook notes that the syndrome “should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life" outside of occupation.

CNN claims that the science behind burnout dates back to a 1974 study by the psychologist Herbert Freudenberger.

Burnout has widely been infused into society as a talking point of stress and workplace exhaustion, but wasn't taken seriously as a legitimate medical condition and was associated with younger generations.

Many young people claim that they have internalized the idea that they should be working 24 hours a day. This new classification can help validate those who need medical assistance to help them manage burnout.

In an interview with MailOnline, Megan spoke about the body shaming.

The 25-year-old explained: "I didn’t know what it was and people were really criticising me, saying you look anorexic, you look skeletal, it’s disgusting’.

"It annoys me that people think they have the right to say it to me or have the right to call someone fat. The trolls online are vile".

Megan detailed that her condition was only recently diagnosed last year, and she has been "dealing with it in private."

The TV personality went onto explain the reality of living with IBS.

"When I get really bloated my belly can swell up to the point where I literally look two months pregnant."

"I can go from that extreme, to having a really bad belly and losing weight – because if you can’t keep [food] down, how are you going to keep it on?", she added.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a common condition and it affects the digestive system.

It can be a lifelong problem which can cause bloating and stomach cramps.

Diet changes and medicines can often offer some relief to symptoms.

If you're concern that you may have IBS, talk to your doctor. 

Ignore the haters, we think Megan is FAB.
