Having been the DM/GM for over 90% of the years I've been gaming, I can certainly relate. No one in my group hardly ever wants to run games, though the last couple of years has seen that change to a small degree. I get to be a player 3, maybe 5 times a year, and even that small amount helps immensely. I'm about to start playing in a PbP game and I'm really excited by the idea. I have no doubt that my periods of burnout will be made easier to deal with by getting to be a player.
I think I rambled. I hope I made some sense.
I'm in the same boat. The issue I have is that even when I manage to get a player to take over for a few months or I find a group away from my home game; no one runs the kinds of games I want to play in :(
So that itch is never fully scratched.
