Default Workaholism: Therapy

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) was seen between November 2002 and July 2003 (an outbreak of SARS in southern China caused an eventual 8,098 cases, resulting in 774 deaths reported in 37 countries, with the majority of cases in Hong Kong) according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Treatment involved ventilation and oxygen as well as antipyretics. There was also an impairment in ability to work and some cases of severe mental depression.

Toxoplasmosis is another illness with symptoms related to oxygen dynamics and mental problems.

This thread is about the onset of serious maladies that often require an addressing of respiration, oxygen-flow, hygiene, and rest, treatments very 'symbolic' for our modern age of hustle-bustle *workaholic* urban environments (e.g., Wall Street).

While it can be nearly impossible to diagnose any real 'illness' related to urban congestion and/or over-worked lifestyles, many people often seek some kind of 'home remedy' or even 'psychosomatic/spiritual advice' regarding the relaxing of muscles and the brain in times of great work-related stress.

Work-related activities can be (and have been) correlated to the use of stimulants such as Ritalin and cocaine and overworked people may require methods to unwind and relax (perhaps using depressants or taking muscle-relaxants).

The biggest obstacle to the diagnosis of urban 'workaholic' patterns connected to physical or mental atrophy is that no one in the modern age wants to 'admit' that they feel 'hurried' or 'suffocated.'

"He go lags behind in Wall Street becomes a dinosaur...so never complain of fatigue or congestion on the trading floor!" Now, that sounds like a line from a possible Hollywood (USA) film about Wall Street culture. So you can see the 'peer pressure' associated with the 'diagnosis' of urban work-overload related tangible physical/mental deterioration!

To 'treat' this kind of 'double-blind' mass behavior of health-neglect, we can't simply continue to drink Starbucks coffee and take energy-drinks to 'get through' the Wall Street hours...

What we need is a way to talk about WORKAHOLISM and how to feel more 'comfortable' prescribing and talking about 'lifestyle-potions' such as mentally-calming herbal tea breaks, sleep-enhancing NyQuil (a relaxant as well as a cold-medicine) doses, portioned sleeping-pill allowances, and various forms of respiration/ventilation devices/treatments (e.g., humidifiers).

If we completely ignore this kind of issue, we could see countless strokes among stockbrokers and urbanites and possibly even depression related toxoplasmosis-like physical atrophy (not unlike Rigor mortis).

That's where the World Health Organization comes in --- the WHO is in a position to advocate serious contemplation of work-related health deterioration in this modern age of WORKAHOLISM.
