My last project and horrible leadership left me with PTSD. Anytime I need to talk about it (staffing interviews, performance, etc.), I get anxious all over again. Has anyone dealt with this before?

My team has been 2yrs working mostly from home. I’ve come to value it a lot. If I interview around, is it a bad look to mention that? Curious how that’d be perceived. In M&A due diligence FWIW.
