My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?

Is West Coast consulting life during WFH the worst possible scenario right now, especially if you have a crappy team? I have clients/3rd party vendors/fellow team members in all time zones in the US + Western & Eastern Europe.

The only way this could be worse is if I lived in Hawaii LOL "It's about points scored, not minutes played"
