Not sure what the question is?

Seems to me like your mgmt should have stepped in & discussed extension/delay with the client (if it was the client who delivered the data that late, that is). However, there’s always exceptional circumstances, but then mgmt should make you aware of the criticality of this analysis upfront so you can mentally prepare for the crunch-time... at least that’s how it usually goes at my company.

Our partner often mentions his top 3 priorities:
- Client success
- Consultant wellbeing
- Company financial success

I think he’s got his priorities straight.

That ☝🏿 and I hope you built some good models you can plug data into. Also I hope you are selling models not outcomes. Always easier when you have a client that you know will struggle with collecting data.

I feel like OP is blowing off steam and there is an implicit “Go!” at the end of this. Not effective situation/question. I’ve been in your shoes but if you’re going to air this as a problem, make your points distinctly

Give them a break. They have had 8 hours of sleep in 3 days.

Sounds like you had somewhere between 3 days and two weeks of had work. That isn’t fun but it’s part of the job. There are people in the world who work those hours in perpetuity, though

I just went through a rough time dealing with depression, PTSD, and anxiety. I didn’t seek help earlier because I didn’t want to appear weak or less capable than my male counterparts. I tried to ignore the elephant in the room and it almost cost me too much. I am glad that someone convinced me to seek professional help. That was the best decision. If you’re struggling with stress at work, let me tell you: your mental health is more valuable! Reach out and talk to someone. It can save your life.

Shifting gears, but today is Lynch Syndrome Awareness Day. I was diagnosed in 2017. If you have multiple family members with colon or uterine cancers, it is a good idea to get genetic testing so you can be proactive of your own health. 4k colon cancers, and 18h uterine cancers are attributed to Lynch each year. This syndrome also causes additional diseases, which are shown in this graphic. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out. It's my goal to educate and save lives!

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
