I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
I’m a new lateral 3rd year in a niche practice area and the partner I do most of my work for with called me today saying he has a medical emergency and can’t look at emails today/tomorrow. We have several deliverables due this week and I’m the only associate on his projects. HELP
I can’t function. I don’t have energy to do the smallest things. All I want to do is sleep. I don’t have to feel pain or deal with life when I sleep. I left my job because of this. I have a history of clinical depression and this is the worst episode I’ve ever experienced. I made an appointment with a therapist and to get on meds. Do I qualify for state disability even though I quit my job?
How do you guys handle calling out of work for being sick while on a tight audit? I do not feel well but I feel the pressure of working though the pain Bc I’m behind. I don’t want to fail my team.
