I was talking to my husband yesterday and he mentioned feeling anxious most of the day, and I realized that he used to say that sometimes when we were dating and I never understood why he would be feeling anxious but not know why/have a reason he was anxious. I just hadn’t experienced it so couldn’t fully relate. I can now say that after 3 years in biglaw, I do understand and can relate. Sad what these high stress/ high hour corporate jobs do to our mental health. No real story, just sharing.
