For those that lost their sense of taste after testing positive for Covid, how long did it take to get it back?
(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.
Have 46 nights on Marriott Bonvoy this year - no more work travel so if I want to get to 50 I’d have to stay 4 nights personal - have my plat status renewed for next year so staying the 4 nights would only be for getting the 5 suite night upgrades - never had them before so wondering if they’re worth spending ~$700 in essence just for them? What would u guys do?
Left my wallet on delta flight. It's been 4 days and no word. Anyone have a tip on how to get it back?

"CDC now says people exposed to coronavirus may not need to be tested. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has changed its COVID-19 guidelines, no longer recommending testing for most people without symptoms, even if they’ve been in close contact with someone known to have the virus. The CDC had said that viral testing was appropriate for people with recent or suspected exposure, even if they were asymptomatic." Thoughts?

So he tested positive days before the debate. Then miraculously tested negative. Then days after, he tested positive again and ended up in the hospital. After the fact, in his town hall with Savannah Guthrie, he said he never tested positive until *after* the debate. I’m sure it was all totally above board… and naturally, Trump says Meadow’s claim is fake news. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book
Double vaccinated but got Covid. Had 102 fever, chills, body ache, red eye, fatigue, runny nose in the first 2-3 days and now after 6 days, most of the symptoms are gone except mild brain fog, fatigue, and loss of smell/taste. For those who were vaccinated and got Covid, how long did it take you to recover? Should I join back my office?

Sisterhood of the Understanding, I have a question for you and pray you may give me guidance. Over the next 2 weeks I have 9 interviews coming up. I’d like to get Botox and my fillers redone, but especially the cheeks and tear troughs tend to leave me with bad bruising for 2 weeks that make-up just doesn’t cover. Only one of the interviews is web cam. Would you do the fillers and Botox now or wait until post interviews?

(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
