Best friend has been diagnosed and is swinging very fast between manic & depressive states while their doctors find the right balance of medication & therapy.

I have multiple client projects. One client talks a lot and keeps going over slotted meeting times. I am frustrated because I can’t find a good way to cut the client off and move to my next meeting. I even tried extending time with him. This client thinks his problems are the most important and doesn’t understand the concept that I’m across multiple engagements. I’m sick of being late all of the time and having to apologize to my other teams. What do you guys do when this happens?

I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due.
