How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed? I’m at a point where I’m considering getting an official diagnosis from a doc. It’s interfering with my day to day ie I easily zone out and get real anxious halfway through conversations (even short ones) Zoom calls are no better. I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)
How are you guys keeping things going with people you've been seeing? Just had a zoom date last weekend where we watched a movie but idk of any other ideas And how do you make moves to into...

Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
To the person on my company slack who said "welcome back! Was just telling <my skip level boss> how we haven't spoken to you since you went on Mat Leave and that was a long time ago".

Question- is it appropriate for team members to join video calls with political propaganda in view? For example, if a person had a giant Biden/Harris sign or Trump sign and the clients might have different affiliations, should we worry about that or ask team members to tone it down?

Has anyone tried therapy via Skype (or something similar)? If so, how was your experience? I am struggling to find a psychologist that works weekends...
I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!

Anyone feel like they just aren’t a good attorney/cut out for being a lawyer? Started out doing corporate work, hated it. Switched over to litigation because I had originally went to law school thinking I wanted to be a litigator of some kind. About one year in, I work my tail off and have the reputation for doing so. Almost like clockwork my written work gets torn apart, and I make what i feel are stupid mistakes. I try to cut myself some slack because I’m junior but the doubt creeps in.

I’ve been doing civil defense work for well over 15 years. I am seriously thinking about switching sides. I’m tired of being valued by how much I bill instead of my results. I’m also tired of billing 10+ hours a day. And really I’m just overall miserable. Can anyone tell me what being a plaintiffs attorney is like? Do you get salary and commission? Do you really have no billable hours? How does that work?I make 180k a year, can I get at least that much as a salary doing plaintiffs work?
