Burnout destroyed my faith. There’s no other way to say it. Having grown up as a conservative Baptist I fully expected medicine to bring me closer to God. Instead I chafed against beliefs that weren’t supported by my experiences and that I had been questioning for a long time.
But burnout took those beliefs and put a huge crack right down the middle of them. I couldn’t believe that God wasn’t stepping in to help me through some really dark times and everything I’d been told just seemed… ridiculous.
Since coming out of burnout, I’ve begun building new beliefs and honestly feel like I’m more spiritual than I have ever been. But it was a hard road. I’m digging deep today. Sharing some really dark times and giving some perspective on what it really meant to leave behind beliefs that had been ingrained in me from my first days on Earth.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen miraculous things happen. I haven’t suddenly become an Atheist and believe that there is nothing out there, but the way I believe now is nothing like it was then.
… and burnout is the reason why it all changed.
“I was getting ready to go to work on Monday and the dark, dark cloud of dread was just all over my house and all over me.” Dr. Errin WeismanIn this episode:
[03:37] I share my religious background.
[06:30] Listen as I share how my burnout destroyed my faith.
[08:50] I decided it was time to talk to the pastor, and I share my conversation with Pastor Logan.

[15:27] Sitting in the muck allowed me to come to new truths.
[17:35] I speak about what has become my new belief system.
[21:18] I now lean into what feels aligned, real and true to me.
