In brief: It depends

It depends on how you are dealing with this mental exhaustion and repetitive stress.
Are you working through this with a psychologist or other psychotherapist? Are you practicing a stress-relief method like meditation or yoga daily? Are you eating healthily, and getting consistent rest? Is your work fulfilling? Do you have support from friends & family? All these are important factors.
