Anyone struggled with PMS associated depression? I took a day off because I could not bring myself to get out of bed!Feel paralyzed with guilt & work stress, losing my limited time off every month.

Yes, if I wasn’t traveling for work today I would spend the day in bed. Talk to your doctor it probably means your hormones are swinging to far in one direction.

If this is a recurring issue, talk to your doc so you can get recurring FMLA approval. If you only need one or two days off a month you won’t miss the pay, but then your company knows what’s up and you can’t lose your PTO or job for it. I have done it for PMDD related depression and pain and it was worth the minor hassle of getting it approved.

Yup. FMLA doesn’t have to be used in one go. You can get standing intermittent approval for migraines, PT appointments, etc.

I’ve done really well in my 2 years with my current big 4 firm and am coming up for promotion in July. I am sitting on an offer with a step up in title and 40% pay increase. They say grass is not greener on the other side (hello unlimited PTO and all the other terrible comments I’ve read for new firm. Guess who 😂😅) but it’s hard to justify not moving. Am I making a huge mistake leaving behind my 2 year hard work going to the unknown or should I just go for it and take the pay and title!? Help.

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?

Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
