A first year associate at my law firm (I joined 2 months ago) died by suicide last week. My brother died by suicide when I was younger. I don’t know that I have a specific question, I just feel so terrible for her and her family. I also can’t help but wonder if it is a red flag as to my new firm.
I have a title/survey memo due this week and my last one took 3 hrs for 10 items so assumed the new one would be quickly too... Just opened the title commitment here at 11pm, memo due tomorrow, 60 exception items I haven't started reviewing. Send help, I severely played myself 🙃

I’m an associate attorney at a mid-size family law practice. (5 attorneys, 3 support staff). I’ve been here for 3 years and just asked for a raise to $130k from $90k. My annual billable target is 1400. However, since I’ve been here I’ve barely broken 1000 despite working my ass off. I bill out at $375. They told me no more raises unless I start taking my own cases. Now they just hired a new associate and are paying him $170k and he takes his own cases. Am I being unreasonable asking for $130k?

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

I got off of Lexapro after 4 years. It’s been about 4 months and managing the stress of work and life feels so overwhelming (even with therapy) and I’m slipping back into old habits. Has anyone felt successful after getting off SSRI’s? I want to be medication free but it seems unrealistic. Any tips?
