Psychosomatic? Nope. I don't think I long for approval, but one often misjudges oneself. I only care if I really like someone, but even then, when the rubber hits the road, I've got to please myself.
Once I started having responsibilities, I started not liking to miss work because it only meant I had to catch up. Sometimes, I get irritated when a holiday comes along. I started taking off 2 weeks for IW, and it's a bitch. I have to work so hard before I go and then again after I come back. Sometimes when I'm still playing catch up in May, I wonder if it was worth it.
