Applying for jobs and seeing that depression and anxiety is listed as a disability. I’ve been diagnosed for depression/anxiety for 5 years, I take pills and it is not a significant stopper in my life. Should I be marking that I do have a disability? What are the pros/cons from a hiring perspective (I know they say it doesn’t matter but I don’t trust people)

Been diagnosed for well over a decade and I never listed this as a disability. Never know how it may be held against you. If you ever need a mental health break, just take it when you need it after starting the new job. In the current climate we are in, only a monster would hold it against you. Good luck, bro/sis.

I have an autoimmune disease and have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and OCD. I never put that I have a disability because I don’t want it to impact my ability to get hired. I know they say it won’t but you never know. It doesn’t impact my ability to get the work done so I don’t see a point in listing it. Better safe than sorry in this case.

I was so good and confident when I was interviewing with consulting firms. Now that I am here for something close to two months, I am really struggling. Struggling to piece together coherent questions and thoughts. Struggling to speak up. Team structure is weird - no one has the bandwidth to address dumb questions, feel like I’m lost without good guidance. Overall this is not good for anyone wanting to be successful in consulting. Any thoughts or advice? Is this the initial phase, gets better?

Just venting. I feel like a horrible mom. My daughter is 20 months old and she has been on and off low key sick (runny nose, no fever) for the past three months since daycare. She has been waking up screaming all hours of the night and I’m so tired I can’t handle it anymore. My husband has been so great with her and holding her all night as needed. Whenever I see him handling her crying so well, I feel like I’m the worst as I just want her to stop. Loud noise is too much. Always feel like

One thing I struggle to remind myself of is you can only lose so much from a bad investment but gains from a good investment are (sorta) unlimited. If your starting position is $10,000 and the value halves, you're down $5,000. But if the value of a separate position doubles, you're now up a total of $5,000. I think learning this will help me reach my FIRE goals by eliminating a lot of emotion and impulse in my investment decisions. What other "life lessons" do any of you have?
