Yes, absolutely. I think it's an unavoidable symptom of withdrawal, or atleast it has consistently been for me. I describe it as dragging ass. It lasts a few weeks whenever I've gone off meds. During those times, basic functioning was pretty tough and I was not able to function at the same level in terms of productivity and quality of output. Also found speaking intelligently to others a bit challenging. But it ends and it's not like being dope sick fwiw. Good luck!

Yes for me as well.

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period.

I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!

Hey, I’ve been working at an agency for 10 months. Tbh the low entry level salary in marketing is getting to me. I live in a high cost of living city. I hate having to work from 9-6, sometimes skipping lunch(not paid for lunch hour), and working overtime for no over time pay. Is it worth sticking it out or switching fields? I didn’t have the best childhood and want to be self sustainable faster. I’m not a quitter but my mental health is not in a good place. Would like some advice. Thanks!

Pre Covid I lived in a big city, liked work, had a close group of friends and went out a fair amount.
During Covid I became a nomad, solo traveled, and was very active; hiking, exploring the world and meeting new people.
Post Covid or now: I feel like im at a crossroads. I’m seriously saying someone and looking to move to their small mountain town. Ik the outdoorsy life is more me but I feel like I’m choosing between lifestyles and I have to pick one.

I'm a diabetic, but it's not debilitating in the slightest, so I always get annoyed when it is listed as a disability on job applications. I never select it; I always say I do NOT have a disability, but a part of me feels like I'm being misleading. This potential company will have to pay for meds that I take after all. But I just don't want to lessen my chances as they could easily assume marking a "disability" means I'd have issues performing the job.
