How do you guys handle calling out of work for being sick while on a tight audit? I do not feel well but I feel the pressure of working though the pain Bc I’m behind. I don’t want to fail my team.
Best tech strat/planning departments? (or creative agency unicorns that have solid pay and balance?) I can’t take it anymore — horribly underpaid and overworked, sick of the holding company bullshit, mental health is suffering. I don’t want to give up on strategy but I can’t keep waiting around for my company (and the agency world) to change. Where do I go ?
Is there anything you can say if you suspect one of your directs has ADHD (probably undiagnosed)? I don’t mean this with any judgment. I have ADHD and recognize many similarities in their behavior. Their performance has been suffering (a lot), and I’m running out of ways to address the day-to-day issues. It feels like there’s a larger issue at play that I can’t mention.
Sick and sprained my ankle, haven’t worked out in over a week. Feel like I’m gonna gain all the weight back and lose muscle. What do you all do when taking it easy with exercise?
So sick of projects that only care about standing up functionality and not the UX/UI. Next thing you know our “solution” becomes the crappy, difficult-to-use product that another firm is replacing.
Hi ladies, looking for good birth control recommendations. I’m 26 and have never taken bc, but I’m so sick of the terrible cramps and heavy periods. My period knocks me on my ass each month. I’ve hesitated in taking birth control due to weight gain, mood swings etc. I know it’s different for each person, but any recs would be much appreciated.
Had a medical emergency on my flight and they delayed drinks. The guy next to me reacts at the flight attendant going “really all for one person, you’re going to have a plane full of dehydrated ppl” 🙄

Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?
Hi all, I realize this isn’t a medical community but would still appreciate insights. I started Trintillix for anxiety / depression but ultimately insurance wouldn’t cover it. I switched to Wellbutrin and didn’t feel anything. I also now need to get off Wellbutrin because of some other medical things. What successes have people had for anxiety / depression? I have a history of eating disorders so really won’t take anything that might make you gain weight. Realize this is a tall order, but TIA.

Just curious...for those that work at Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, social media companies...how do you limit your screen time? Are you so sick of social media at work that you don’t care about it when you get home? Do you let your kids have access?
I tell myself that I've come to terms with my husband not being very thoughtful or helpful around the house. But I was sick last weekend and he didn't even unload the dishwasher or put away the laundry I'd already done, and when I asked him to help me by getting me drinks and stuff, he would tell me 'in a minute' because he was on his phone, and then he'd get to it eventually or forget. It's like, can you pretend to care just a little?
BBB creates national paid leave program that gives four weeks of paid family and medical leave. Workers starting in 2024 will receive a percentage of their income starting at about 90% and scaling down for higher earners. Some how this absolute joke and pushed out to 2024 is considered progressive and this is the “far left”. If you are a real liberal or progressive, BBB is a joke!!! It’s as progressive as a bill corporate California Democrats can stomach.
Just received a new job offer and negotiated my salary for the first time ever. Ended up securing an extra $10k for myself. It was exhilarating and empowering 🤩 Posting to encourage other women to go to the mat for themselves. It was not at all something I was comfortable doing, but I kept reminding myself what I wanted and what I thought I was worth!
