I worked up to 120 hours per week, when suddenly the light went out Café-owner talk candidly about burn-out
Winch Thick two months after a severe burn-out him in the psychiatry did end up, is Peter Borghs (50) once again behind the counter of the well-known Lier café ’t Good Example. “In combination with any other job I worked up to 120 hours per week, until suddenly the light went out,” says Peter frank. “Today, my dark thoughts away and I dare once again to make plans.”

When Peter Borghs end of January, with a burn-out had to be admitted to the psychiatric department of the Lierse Heilig-Hartziekenhuis, he made no secret of. On the Facebook page of café ’t Good Example, he played open cards with the outside world. After five weeks of therapy taps Peter again pints in the pub that he, together with his wife Pim and four years ago took over from his parents-in-law. HLN asked the cafébaas to further his story and the man voted in to the taboo of burn-outs and mental health to break.

one night I heard my own voice in my head. That said, " make sure there is still an end’. in the Morning I let me record in psychiatry.”

“I have a very heavy period behind,” says Peter. “When my mother-in-law decided after 38 years to stop with ’t Good Example, my wife and I the about. We wanted this Lier horecamonument after all in the family. Only am I to remain in the combine with my job as a freelance producer and assistant director in the audiovisual sector. That way I knocked sometimes 120 hours per week. Gradually grew the combination of work-cafe-administration me over the head. I slept barely a few hours per night and during my sleep I was constantly worrying. When we then were confronted with a few financial setbacks, I am crashed. That setbacks were not dramatic – it was ‘only’ a few thousand euros – but I was all relativeringsvermogen lost.”
