Entertaining client a bit too hard

Stomach virus. No one will want you to give it to them.

Get Berocca at Walgreens. It's like Airborne for hangovers. I promise it works!

Anger issues run in my family; we actually have a name for it that goes back a few generations. Sadly, I too, believe I have been infected w/ this same anger. Most days if something upsets me I want to punch a wall or scream so loud I collapse a lung or shred my vocal cords rendering me unable to speak. I’ve been in therapy for 6+ years, it’s worked for a bit, but now I feel myself regressing.

I need help and need it fast before I wind up pushing away everyone I care about. Any suggestions?

I’m totally empathetic to people that miss offices and traveling. I understand your reasons why, I truly do.

For me personally, after non-stop weekly travel for 4 straight years, not traveling has made me realize how much I enjoy being home. Spending time with family, sleeping in your own bed, consistent exercise schedule, etc.

I for one hope consulting becomes more of a hybrid travel model (i.e. travel 1-2x per month or as needed). Else it won’t be for me.

Anyways, just some thoughts.

Changed employers - What should I do with my 401k balance? Will it be best to roll over to Roth IRA or leave it as is? I had my 401 with vanguard.
