I have serious anxiety and panic attacks getting worse dealing with everything and work and family. I'm barely surviving and functioning. Every other day I feel like I will just collapse because I can't handle it anymore. I know what I can do to make the situation better but I'm in no physical situation to do it

To start.. take some days off if you can. Work is the last thing that should be in your mind in the immediate term.

I second SM1. Op can you take personal/vacation days? Hopefully there is someone to tend to your mom overseas. If not can you plan on going there just to be by her side? She seems to be the most vulnerable of all. Your brother is hopefully mature enough to get a grip on his life and handle it by himself for a bit. Sending good vibes your way ♥️

When was the last time you visited your own firm’s website? The last time I visited was when I was interviewing with them last year.

By now, nearly every CEO of a major company has made some public statement or proclamation of their commitment to racial equality, diversity, and such matters. What percent of those do you believe truly comes from the heart and a bias for both personal and corporate action, versus a necessary public relations response with little personal ownership? My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.

I accepted an offer for a reputed firm and realized there is no mention of severance in the offer letter in the event they decide to end the employment. It is normal for firms to not offer severance?

Just completed my annual benefits enrollment. I plan on going the entire year without ever seeing a doctor. New plan totally sucks. It was a choice between bad, worse and worst.

When you apply for a job with a client, could they reveal that you’re doing that to your current firm? I’m sure the official policy is to protect privacy, but more concerned about client individuals who may have close relationships with partners/SMs at my firm and reveal something casually while interviews are still ongoing.
