It’s a moment just as likely to catch us off guard as it is to give four weeks notice and an iCal reminder.
It can happen in the car, at work and even in the dairy aisle.
Comedian and radio presenter Em Rusciano has this week described meeting her breaking point and crawling under a desk in tears.
“Last Friday all the wheels feel off the rickety wagon, which resulted in me writing an overly emotional Facebook status and then discreetly crawling under a table at the radio station and delicately crying in my active wear,” she said.
The open and honest reveal was published on her website on Monday after a tumultuous few months.
“I’ve been teetering on the brink of burnout for a few months now,” she said.
Rusciano shared how the last straw came from her daughter’s school who called to say she had forgotten to pack her daughter’s lunch.
