All of these layoffs are revving up my anxiety, making me question my job security, and I think it's getting to the point where my anxiety attacks are making me sick again.

I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan. Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?

I personally feel that I am more of a slower worker than my other peers at WIPFLI. I take my time when I work through my assignments. Recently I have had a conversation from a Partner and separate conversation with a Sr. Manager who is my performance coach. They both say it takes what it takes to complete a job. But both are asking questions about my over budget. What do I do? I’m scared that I will get fired, honestly. I just try to do my best. I’m thinking of having a chat with them.

I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.

In the start of busy season and my 8 month old goes to daycare 3 days a week. I feel worn down already by work & her (a single mom basically). I was looking forward to her going to daycare today because we had off and I could run errands and just have a DAY to myself.. her school was cancelled. Is it bad if I take a sick day on Wednesday just to have a mental break, alone.. I feel guilty because it’s busy season.. but I feel like I am drowning.

If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?
