I don’t know how I’m just realizing this now, but my job gives me anxiety. Over the past 5-6 years I turned into an anxious person with GERD and IBS. I thought that’s just who I am, but it seems like every time I take vacation I’m back to feeling ‘normal,’ until I start thinking about work. Any advice?

I’m a mental health counselor with a masters, 10 years direct experience, no license, earning 45,000 a year and 17 days PTO ( no additional holidays) in NE PA. I think it’s low.

I feel like I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown and yet I'm terrified about taking the time I need for my mental health. The fear of potentially losing my job (and my income) for taking extended time off to take care of myself creates a vicious cycle of fear, paranoia, and anxiety.

This is not a sarcastic question, I genuinely want to know, how do you use PTO as an attorney? Is your billable hour requirement for the month offset, or are you expected to make it up? How do you make sure your cases are all good and there won’t be any fires while you’re gone?

The only way I studied in college is by cramming. Sadly is so hard for me to get studying as it just seems like it’s so long of studying till you take the test and never ends. Have any of you guys passed FAR in a month of cramming? I’m also working but my clients are a little bit easier this time of year and have some PTO days at the end of next month. If you don’t mind sharing your studying techniques if you did pass in a month that would be awesome!
