A friend just kicked out of dental school because she refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. She claims her family has suffered “adverse affects” from the vaccine and is afraid to get it. What have you done to convince someone you love to get the vaccine? I hate watching her throw away her career because of something as trivial as getting a vaccine.
How would you feel being invited to a late August wedding where the couple asked that you be vaccinated in order to attend? Let’s assume honors system. 150 people invited, all outdoors. 25% of guest list are doctors. Mostly progressive crowd. No kids.
Is anyone else tired of hearing people talk about all of the things our seniors are missing out on? I’m so tired of this entitlement situation. Yes, it would be nice to have a graduation and end of the year activities. But these things are not owed to anyone. How about being grateful for survival? There are students all over the world that seem to get along just fine without senior activities.
In desperate need of advice here... I resigned from my job three months ago and made the conscious decision to take some time off before finding a new gig due to crippling anxiety and depression. Got the help I needed and I'm doing much better. I have a few interviews lined up over the course of the next few weeks and I'm torn on whether or not to disclose the fact that I've been professionally diagnosed with anxiety and depression. What's the best course of action?
Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.
There's a clinic nearby doing walk-in coronavirus tests. Been thinking about getting one for peace of mind (paying out of pocket, outside of health insurance, to avoid the hassle). I think it's an antibody test. If I test positive, will a crew of hazman suits take me away immediately? Has anyone done one?

Any New Yorkers out there been claiming Unemployment Insurance then freelanced for a week and had to answer these questions from NY Dept of Labor? They seem contradictory. Not sure if they’re saying I should declare my freelance earnings or exclude them, based on the wording of the question. Please help!
Do you think being fat is detrimental to your career? Feel like people judge on physical traits all the time at my firm. Not overtly but just get vibes off certain people…
Is anyone else upset by how much we lose from our paychecks to taxes?? I calculated it out and it’s like 20% of mine. Why give people stimulus checks when you could just have everyone pay less in taxes.
Looking for advice - I try to sleep a good amount every night and also try to stay hydrated but am always so exhausted. Don’t / can’t drink coffee due to health reasons. Any recommendations for boosts of energy and feeling more awake / alert? TIA
Did you all see this?
Question: how terrible does it look to have had a bad semester in uní? Went to Top20 (3.5gpa) for ug and unfortunately failed a couple of classes in a semester due to health reasons but these were business courses (social science major). I know some schools have an optional essay to address this.
Hey all - lifestyle question. Have been very successful in consulting over last 15 years, with all of the drawbacks you could expect on lifestyle. I am an ADD riddled binge eater who hates to exercise and buries himself in work - and now I need to change lifestyle and lose weight in a way I can sustain. For this group - assuming money isn’t an object but time is severely limited, how have folks thrown money at the problem to improve health and lose weight? Lap band? Chef catered meals? Recs?
DPW has made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all U.S. offices. Anyone who doesn‘t have the vaccine will not be permitted to enter the premises. Can I please check how the other BigLaw firms are dealing with this? Don‘t want to start a political discussion, but this seems very intruisive to me.
Hi all, looking to withdraw money from my HSA to purchase a cooler mattress topper to improve my sleep. (Hot sleeper) Under current rules, it seems I would need a letter of medical necessity from a doctor which I’ve asked for and am likely not going to get. I plan to withdraw the money from my HSA and make the purchase anyway. Yes I know it’s against the rules, but I have a high conviction that this will improve my long term health. Will I be asked for QME documentation at tax time?
Ok question to all- I’m 100% disabled (T&P) and have my company insurance (BCBS). I went to the VA and they’re charging me for the co-payment. I’ve never been charged before and today they did. Is this new? Again I’ve been going to the VA and they’ve never charged me before. Any insight on this would be appreciated. I did call the VA but no one was helpful, as expected
