Sanity check here - I lateraled to a big firm last summer, and since then I’ve noticed a few red flags. We have zero project management in a partner-heavy group and no admin support, and every day is a constant scramble. The top partners do not treat associates or staff well and I had a brutal “last straw” situation last week. I’m burnt out (pacing at 2200) and anxious all the time, I hit a wall mentally/physically/emotionally. Is it worth it to look elsewhere or is this just big firm life? 🥴

Pt. 1: Alright, here's my concern. I understand bus drivers are hard to come by. When you got 'em, you want to keep 'em. Our district is in short supply and we recently found out a player (players) on one of our athletic teams, along with a coach (coaches) has tested positive for Covid, OR been exposed. A few of us drivers recently drove this team to an away game within this past week yet none of us were notified if we might have possibly been the driver to one or more of these players/staff.

Just found out I’m getting promoted to manager at a Big 4. Yay! They have no idea how hard it was getting diagnosed with ADHD finally midway through this year and thinking I’d never make it. Jokes on them!

This would be my 3rd, but need some input. I am 10 dpo (guess) and I just wiped some reddish brown discharge. It’s like mucus/veiny consistency. I have had cramping pain yesterday and today.
