...I’m sorry, why are you traveling for work if you’re feeling ill? No manager / partner / whoever in their right minds would want you to work with COVID 19 going around

I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field. My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?

After summer, I’m due to start my career as a big law associate. And I’m scared to death. Imposter syndrome is crippling me, despite having performed very well at both Ivy League undergrad and law school, as well as the bar exam. Maybe it’s my background - raised by an alcoholic, abusive single mother and making it against all odds and thinking I statistically should be in prison, dead or on disability. How can I deal with this fear of failing?

Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning. I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.

At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations. I just had to take sick leave again on the first project out of the gate. Dr is recommending 40 hours a week which will not fit the requirements of my director role. I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?
