Feeling really stressed by client on my project. I dont know if I can survive without it impacting my health. Is it possible to get a mental health evaluation to assess? Never had issue letting stuff roll off my back but this one is causing sleep loss, stomach issues, and I feel like I want to cry all the time. I do a good job on deliverables, on time and quality work. Seems no matter what, he is nasty. Others say not to take it personal, its just him. But I cant deal. How do I fix this?

Please suggest as I'm very stressed.
