If you’ve ever suffered from burnout, or know someone who suffers from a gaming disorder, the World Health Organization just deemed them as official medical diagnoses.

Burnout is a result from chronic workplace stress. Doctors can diagnose a patient with the condition if they have three symptoms: exhaustion, mental distance or negativity toward their job and reduced ability to complete tasks.

Burnout can only be diagnosed regarding work and not other life situations.

Along with burnout, a gaming disorder has also been added by the WHO as a medical condition.
