Has anyone been to Costa Rica (Tamarindo) recently? Are things open with COVID? Did you feel safe? Thanks!
As a manager, have worked 2400 hours to date since July 2019 (taking 48 hours of vacation). Finding it very hard to justify working this much for the amount im getting paid. Not considering COVID-19.
Can an employer ask for joint tax returns to obtain health insurance with the company? I have never heard or been asked to prove this. Thank you!

How much is your gym membership?
Looking to lose the baby weight, surround my WFH lonely self with other motivated folks, and meet new people in this town.
Really trying to justify this epic amazing gym stocked with facilities & amenities instead of jogging / peloton / planet fitness / 24 hour fitness.
No other big expenses other than mortgage & food & car, low key person generally not extravagant. But I want this. It's $250/ month for family (2 adults, 2 kids in onsite daycare).
Has anyone taken the OHST exam? I have over 12 years experience in health and safety plus my CSP. Wondering if a three day prep course will be enough.
On a scale of 1-10 how worrisome do you think it is that I’ve lost 13 lbs in my pregnancy in the past few weeks? Im 19 weeks, I had covid, my husband had emergency surgery that was stressful and the situation spanned a week, I have ADHD and executive dysfunction in general so I’m not good at feeding myself ever. I didn’t have crazy nausea in first trimester. I ask bc my anatomy scan is next week but with a lab tech, not the OB, and I want to know if I should let the OB know/make appointment. TIA

Ugh... insurance just retracted and now say they don't cover egg freezing after initially saying they do... has anyone flipped insurance no to yes?
I have been practicing family law for 7 years and made partner at my firm. But with Covid and some big (happy) life moments this past year I keep wondering if the stress is worth it and can feel myself burning out. Has anyone made a successful transition entirely out of family law? Is there anyway to go in house after practicing family law? I don’t want to do estate planning because I am not at all familiar with that area of law. Federal clerkship?
Honest confession: my life pre and post-covid was pretty much the same. What can I say? I'm a homebody!
Feeling a little sad and blah today. I’m 9 wks pregnant as per my calculations and apps. Went in for first doc appt and doc saw the sac but no baby. Could my dates be wrong? *sigh*

I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
Does anyone have experience breaking up w a therapist? I've been seeing my therapist for 5+ years for eating disorder treatment and we've been through so much together, but I don't think she's able to help me anymore. While I've stopped my ED behaviors, they've evolved into OCD, and I'm finding that her methods might be making it worse. I think I want to try an OCD expert instead. But I don't know how to end the relationship. Do I just stop going? Do I explain myself? I don't know what to do 🥺
Anyone here willing to share their firsthand experience of searching for and selecting a therapist? My wife was kind enough to vet a few through our church and her friends, but wondering if I might find a better fit with a therapist who specializes in working with lawyers or small business owners.

Does anyone else feel like having kids is the only acceptable reason to not be in the office 24/7? If I choose not to have children, do I not have any valid reason to have a life outside work?
I've been working from home for the last six months and had this constant urge to eat treats I find anywhere around the house. My two daughters find it humorous, but it has rarely made me feel good. Kindly, what can I do to stop?
Any 🐠 here with fibromyalgia that have managed to deal with sudden flare ups impacting timeline of return of deliverables? Yesterday and today have been complete washes due to first, all over body pain and today, added brain fog and extreme fatigue. I can’t think, can barely lift a pinky. I have items that I expected to get out but are now taking longer and not getting the focus I’d usually bring. Has FM interrupted your schedule before and how did you deal with it?
If you’re reading this, go drink some water!
This article popped up for me on LinkedIn - does it resonate with anyone else? I feel like so many people I know feel this way, notwithstanding that we should be grateful to be where we are. Is there really no way for this industry to get better as long as we’re client services?
Does anyone have any experience working with a Life Coach/Therapist to help in this industry and just overall? I realize I get in my own way by overthinking and I have trouble executing. Also realizing I doubt myself/ability, so it subconsciously holds me back from implementing things I want to do/achieve. Any recommendation(s) is greatly appreciated!
I’ve been working to an unhealthy degree lately. And I’ve been making the excuse that I have a lot of work right now, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m addicted to it. Part of it is anxiety and perfectionism. But my behavior is now actively harmful to myself and starting to harm my marriage.
How do I stop? I’m not talking work-life balance. I mean, how do I say, “I don’t care that the client wants this tomorrow and I’m not close to done, I’m going to sleep tonight”?
I’ve been struggling with finding the right antidepressant. I started a few months ago but had really bad side effects and stopped (headaches, lethargy, nausea, inability to concentrate). The withdrawal is just as bad. I’ve noticed that I made mistakes when my mind was in a haze and just can’t seem to work. I think I need to find an antidepressant that works for me but I’m nervous it’s going to make work that much harder. Do I tell someone at my firm? If so, how?
People with depression in big law- how do you manage? How do you meet your hours? The lack of support/training and being remote has been very hard on me.
Gripe- there is no room for a sick day in this profession. Big closing coming up. Have a bad cold. Have billed 40+ hours in the last 3 days.
Why do lawyers celebrate a culture of poor health?
3rd yr here in a mid size firm. I’ve been struggling in the mental health dept. I was on leave for 3 wks and have returned to work in June. However, i still feel like a corpse everyday and have zero motivation to do anything. I have noticed my work product declining and I feel extremely burnt out with no hope for the future. I have been trying to get appointment with a psychiatrist but they are either not working or booked up. I want to get better but don’t know where/who to turn to. Advice?
What about legal work is currently causing your mental health struggles?
Mine’s the hours, which is not normally my issue. I billed 230 for June and July and am already at 145 for August. My ability to focus is getting worse by the day, so I’m working longer to bill the same hours and have had to pull a couple all nighters. I burst into tears this morning when a client changed plans and now wants a major project by end of month, on top of my other deadlines next week... I just want to sleep.
Anyone participating in dry January or done similar things in the past? Did you notice an effect on mental health or other benefits?
When covid first hit, I was delighted to be working from home. My hours even improved. Now, because of some triggering events, I’m dealing with horrible panic attacks on the daily. I’m dissociating and can’t focus long enough to get work done. I JUST hit a year at this firm and am going on a one month stress leave. Worried I might not kick this mental state in that time. Any advice as to what I can do while on leave so I can come back focused and ready to work?
