All good suggestions. A little background: This client is a lady of a certain age. She has been embroiled in a court case (over the stupidest, most trivial bullshit I've ever heard in my life) that has taken over a good part of the last 5 years at least, probably even longer. Moreover, she can not win, but will not let it go.
Unsurprisingly, this has taken a toll on her health - the latest symptom, I suspect, is that she's started to lose hair to stress.
