Has anyone had to (or considered) leaving consulting because of their health? With WFH I am just being USED; I’m up at 3am to work before the kids are awake and working late into the night. I spend about 40 mins of quality time with my kids, aged 1 & 2. It’s starting to impact my health, I’m having chest pains and heart palpitations and my anxiety is through the roof. I usually love my job, and feel respected and valued. But I don’t know if I can take it anymore.
