(Parenting adjacent) How does anyone juggle a chronic illness with work and kids? I’ve already done a long leave of absence and dropped from partner track to staff attorney. But I miss about three days of work a month ill, plus doctor appointments and having two kids (9 and 10, one autistic). We moved in with my parents and brother so I have help, but I’m so tired. (Their father isn’t an option for support of any kind). Suggestions?

Trying to join another company either in the same discipline (pm) or another one (account). I’ve been honest with all of my applications - especially with the part where they ask about disability. Am I stupid for this? Should I say no? Or I don’t wish to answer?

TFW you're already sick of winter and realize winter hasn't even officially started yet.
If you go on short term disability are you still counted as employed? I was out for 4 months so if another employer checked, will I still have credit for those 4 months?
The idea that the vaccine will somehow be dangerous in the future is kind of ludicrous to me. Do those saying this really believe that something that could essentially wipe out 170M Americans, including the president, pretty much the entire medical industry, university students, and others would be this heavily recommended by lifelong experts? Do those saying this really think they’re smarter than everyone else?
I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often. But I’m wondering if this is something that is valued by upper management when evaluating their talent? Any thoughts from leaders and managers in consulting? I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.

Hi tax 🐠, I have a question for those who prep individual tax returns. My parents claim my grandfather as a dependent on their tax return and due to their low income, receive PTC for the premiums they pay on his insurance (not eligible for medicare). However, would it be advantageous to have him file for his own tax return (he stays with my parents and doesn't have his own proof of residency via bills). If so, can he get PTC if his income is 0?

Should I still try to negotiate salary after accepting a offer? It is from Accenture for a security analyst position. Since I’m basically a new grad I assumed negotiating salary wouldn’t be worth it. Until I talked to someone on the security team there and he told me I should at least be a senior analyst since I am coming in with a Masters. Should I try to negotiate to a senior role and the salary or leave it? It’s my only cybersecurity offer. Also looking for FAANG,big4or MBB referrals :)

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
