I have the kind of anxiety that makes me cringe so hard at uncomfortable interactions in TV shows. It’s like I’m being put personally into an awkward situation.

Hello,
I’m a MRI technologist with bachelors in radiologic science. My goal is to become epic analyst. I do have a proficiency in Radiant. However, I am not having much luck with any applications. Almost all the postings require actual certification or build experience. I am thinking that I may have to go back to school. My options are either go for masters or go for another bachelors in IT/computer science. What could be my other options? Thank you.

I keep seeing all these posts advising people to take a leave of absence instead of quitting. Do LOAs even exist outside of big law / big consulting firms? I work for a mid-size law firm & have never heard of someone taking leave - other than maternity leave. We have a 1-person HR team and each of our legal departments has 1-2 associates. I just can’t imagine the firm being open to an LOA. Has anyone at a non-major firm done a LOA?

I’m sick with stress. Literally - physically ill every day. I’m severely depressed and anxious, and have been on medication for years. I recently began a new one. I took a short leave at the beginning of this year (one week) and it wasn’t enough. I thought it would be. I feel like I’m letting everyone down. I have an appointment with my GP on Friday to discuss the next best steps for me and treatment, but I also want to figure out how to approach this with my work.

My wife is pregnant and trying to reduce my risk profile. Any advice? My anxiety is through the roof!

A reminder to those who are stressed about your billable hours that your value is more than your pure productivity. To those stressed about relationships, relationships are hard even for non-lawyers, but you are absolutely worthy of love. It is an important reminder for all of us that you are worthy and you are valuable. Keep fighting!
