I caved an took 0.5 mg of xanax and drank a beer to cap off this hellish week (dw, I don't abuse either substance). Can't keep this stress up forever. Thankfully I've had some great interviews with companies this week and am looking forward to the outcome of those to find somewhere with a more manageable WLB and culture. Just felt like sharing.
