How do you deal with a partner who makes you feel terrible about not just your work but yourself? This is a female partner who is older and a leader in her practice area. She comments on how I speak and it veers into personal criticism. Anything I offer to a project she shuts down, but if her favored paralegal says the same thing, she publicly praises her. I feel like they tag team me and unfortunately I can't completely stop working with them.

If we have good, free healthcare through spouse’s job (military), is it still worth it to pay for a high deductible plan through my job to get the benefit of an HSA? For context, we are a family of three. The cost of the health care plan just for myself would be $20/paycheck every two weeks (or about $520/year). Cost to add husband or child to the plan is over $200/paycheck (so I know that’s not an option). My thought is it’s not worth it to pay for the plan, but is there another pt of view?
