Came out of a pretty toxic work environment and therapist has basically said I have PTSD. Trying to get past it, while aiming to excel in new team but finding it hard to voice my thoughts/opinions given previous experience. Also experiencing the beginnings of burnout, caring for a 4 year old and full time work. Oh and any thoughts of promotion are truly gone...any ideas on work strategy?

It’s possible. I was in such an environment at the beginning of my career and it wears on you.

I just started at a new company 2 months ago with the expectation of having 3-4 people on my team. However, my team size will be increasing to 7. I don’t really want to rock the boat so early at my new job especially since I’m still in the “drinking from the firehose” phase, but this is going to be a significant increase in responsibility. We only have pay review in January of each year. Would it be crazy to ask about a raise later this month?

It just feels like I can’t have anything. I already don’t have many friends, family etc. Work is my main thing and I do generally enjoy it but it’s hard to get/stay motivated when I’m this isolated/depressed. I’m well-regarded but also not seen as the best/promotion material, at least yet. Just got scolded and it is so disheartening when I need to get myself motivated to work a ton this weekend regardless. Just venting, but happy to hear thoughts.

Glory to God. After a long battle of advocating for my own career advancement while being under a team who intentionally did not support my advancement/career growth, I finally***** got promoted. With a 10% raise. It was a battle but I stayed faithful to Gods word and sought the kingdom first. Again. ALL. Glory. To.

I recently moved out of my apartment complex 2 weeks ago and ended my lease early because I had to move for work.

After looking the lease, I found the clause but I really don’t want to pay especially when they made the mistake on not billing me and are just now following up 2 weeks later. Advice? Ideas?
