Is it possible to go on disability leave for a few weeks with a therapist’s recommendation? I’m having anxiety and migraines due to something that happened at work. I don’t think the reason matters

because it’s my prerogative. Has anyone gone on short term disability while they work out some psychological issues?

How intensive is the process to get a doctors note on this? If I haven’t really been working with a doctor or psychologist, what’s the best way to get the necessary documentation to go on short term disability?

VP1 - Do you need a doctor’s note or approval to do so?

You need a doctor’s approval.

My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?

Small/boutique corporate/M&A associate here: How do you deal with low value work when you are slammed? Usually we have 1 or 2 big transactions a quarter, but it has been insane since January. I have started deprioritizing low value work (e.g., one-off LLC formations/agreement reviews) to focus on the whales. I am the only full time attorney in the practice, the other is part time. Do I suck it up while the good times last or (firmly/politely) ask the firm to hire up? Thoughts appreciated.
