I have a feeling my Engagement Partner wants me to quit the engagement. It's my 3rd week, but he's been nothing but rude, demeaning and unhelpful.

Roll off voluntarily or wait until he fires me?

I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?

Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning.

Laid off last Nov. Have built up a steady freelance stream since and it’s working. Shit, it’s lucrative. But I miss being in the game. Can I get back in? Should I? Opportunities at my level seem few and far between. Plus, I’m in Canada. Was in the US. Should I go back? Can I? This is messy, I’m sorry. Few beers in. But hey let’s chat!
