Considered falling down the stairs today to injure myself so I could have time off work. Think this means it’s time to take a step back and think about my physical and mental well being.

Hang in there! I'm ex-ATK and I can't imagine the partners you work for would not figure out a way to release some of the pressure you're facing and help you in this difficult time

Kearney Manager here. Feel free to DM me. All of us have bad days - most of the work related troubles don’t matter in a few days / weeks / months. Health will always matter.

There are many support systems - your senior project team being the first line of defense. You just have to reach out for help when you need it.

Hi, I'm sending a hug. It has been a hard day here as well.
Try saying it out loud to someone. I am still feeling down, but it released the pressure.

If you're remotely serious about this post, time for you to shut off the laptop and step outside for some fresh air. Reset your headspace. Re-evaluate whatever's going on. Nothing about this job is worth physically injuring yourself.

Take some vacation and add some unpaid leave if needed. No point being miserable and dying rich. Hoping for the best.

Did that in middle school once when I had 3 huge projects and got so stressed I did none of them. Long story short, it hurts a lot but not enough to get you out of much. Told someone years later about it, they told me that’s very bad and I should probably get some help; I did. Therapy helps, if this isn’t a joke post d seriously look into some counseling options

Or a step forward. And down those stairs.

Same, but I’ve also been asked to be available when I had to take off for important doctors appointments so there’s no guarantee that this would work.
