Anyone in consulting and going through fertility treatments or even a holistic fertility treatment? If so how so you handle travel? Has your manager been understanding?

I told my partner I had a medical procedure that would be three weeks and I couldn't travel, but that I could work remotely. He asked no questions. You are not obligated to share details. Don't let guilt force you into sharing anymore that you feel comfortable. It's no one's business but yours. If they push simply say "I'm not comfortable sharing the details.".

It sucked, but doable. Bring all the needles and meds on the road and make public bathrooms your jam.

My boss knows, did it already three times (all failed) will try soon a fourth time. No problems at all. I was pretty open at office about it. And.. To my surprise a ton more people did it then you would have thought! They just don't talk about it lol

Am considering but would never disclose to anyone. It’s medically related and no one needs to know aside me and my doctor.

No need to tell anyone why, but I think it helps (everyone) to talk about it. A lot more people did it (or tried it) than you might think!

Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that.

I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.

I accepted an offer from another firm and gave notice to my direct partner on Friday. He asked me to wait a few days as a courtesy before giving notice to the firm’s managing partner. The partner I work for knows several of the attorneys at the firm where I got the offer. He is now coming back to me and saying my current firm will match the salary, offer better hours, better title, etc. Needless to say, I’m torn. How bad is it to walk back on an accepted offer? We are in a smaller legal market.
