I had panic attack last March on a Monday at 10:30 PM in the office due to 15+ hour weekdays, consistent update calls with my many partners and seniors, barrage of emails coming in, and massively insane volume of work put on me since previous months. It was 1st year as manager. I didn’t call my parents or friends; I called the partner of one of my engagements that same night at 11 PM. That’s how you know I had lost my mind.

However it turned out well, as she actually picked up the phone and listened to me “rant” a bit and use words I usually wouldn’t say. Then she emailed all the partners whom I work with and told them to leave me alone for next few days while I organize my work and focus on it.

My advice: if you want to tell someone above you, make sure you know for a fact and beyond all doubt that that person truly cares about you and actually will do something about it.

Any Deloitte 🐟 here know how much an IUI at Shady Grove costs against our $25k lifetime max benefit? My coverage starts Jan 1st and they won't be able to tell me the amount until the new year. But I'll be getting the IUI in the first few days of January, thanks to my body's terrible sense of timing. The self-pay option is $1800. Is it significantly more if I use insurance? Because if an IUI is going to eat up like $5000 of my $25k benefit, then I think I'd rather self-pay.

My sister and I have recently both come to the realization that our parents guilt us into spending time with them or visiting them and the guilt causes us both to shut down. Our dad is the main offender, often reminding us how little time we have left with him, asking us why we’re leaving so soon or reminding us about all the good deeds and sacrifices made. We’ve both noticed this shift in our relationship with our parents after graduating from college and starting our own adult lives. Continued
