I was in a similar spot a few months ago when I was going through a medication change. I started from the ground up to pull myself out of the funk. First I focused on eating habits, sleep hygiene, and at least a walk outside a day. Once I had those down, my head was much clearer. Then I started picking up weekly therapy sessions & made sure I spend at least an hour a week with a support group. For me this is my AA home group but getting together with supportive friends is healing. Now I feel ready to start tackling bigger changes (potential career change, working through issues with my partner, setting boundaries). I wish I had a quick answer / solution for you. Whatever you’re feeling is temporary and you have the power to make positive changes in your life

How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
