Yeah if they're scheduled on your client that's annoying for the staff too

Get off the client. Clearly one that has not been tagged a priority, which sucks, but will likely not change.

I always wonder if my team gets sacrificed because they know I can do the job without help (because my SM knows I'm good) or if I'm just straight up getting fucked.

I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
