I am a PI attorney who has far too many clients to manage. This is due to having 4 major surgeries over the last 2 years and my sudden loss of a very experienced paralegal and inability to find a similar replacement. I stopped taking new cases a while ago and still feel like I need to dump some of my more time consuming cases but I worry about doing so, for a myriad of reasons. At the same time, I feel like a failure and am sleeping less and less at night. How do I get out of this nightmare?

Even if they do it, my swearing in date will still be June 2018 instead of Dec 2017, I still lost 6 months of my career even if retroactively I passed the first time.
