When You Feel Like You Have Nothing Left To Give

One of my fellow nurses posted this article today:

The realities of this article hit home for many nurses, especially those who have been in the field for more than a year.  It is an issue that I hope comes back into the forefront, but with the aging baby-boomers, I only see this problem growing.

I am currently reading Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others by Laura van Dernoot Lipsky.  I am looking for some strategies to help with my own struggles with compassion fatigue so that I can continue to be the nurse I want to be.  In serving professions, self-care becomes a necessity in order to continue to give to others.  What strategies do you use in your own serving profession?
