Anyone with ankylosing spondylitis? Any tips on living with this condition? I’ve been having massive back pain and stiffness when I wake up. I already have a few other immune system diseases. Doc thinks I’m highly likely to have AS. Any tips on dealing with this and improving quality of life would be great!
XRs: Getting paid in USD now. When’s best to convert income to GBP over the next 6 months or so? Any ideas? ASAP? Wait a bit longer…
Pigeonholed myself by practicing exclusively family law for my first two years and now as a third year, I want to switch to a different area. Is it totally impossible?
Baby takes a big feed ( dream feed I suppose) at around 6:45pm and wakes up after 5 hours(longest he gives) and then feeds once every two hours or an hour and a half. Is there a way to delay the feed to later in the night(9/10),so we can align sleep patterns as we return to work?
And FYI, we’ve already tried to give him smaller bottles at that time l, but he screams his lungs out until we give him more and he’s full. Anyone have a similar experience??
Why TCS pays such a low fixed salary, they are offering even lesser as to what I have fixed salary with current employer
Thoughts on the Chicago market? I love my home and it's in a great neighborhood so haven't really been paying attention to RE market, but we saw a house 2 miles away on a double lot and just made us realize what we could get for the same value a short distance away. Made an offer over ask and of course was outbid. I don't want to overpay for the lack of inventory because we're in a great home now but now I'm daydreaming about the new neighborhood. Any thoughts? Like maybe give it 6 months?
Does anyone know about the company Revature? Any bad experiences or good ones, I would like to know
Anyone know where I can find practice casebooks
Any suggestions on how to make a partner who has traditionally been required to spend 30% of their time marketing and 70% billing accountable for their time and efforts spent marketing. I feel during Covid this is becoming increasingly more challenging.

I still make less than $100k per year, and there's hardly anything I want that feels like I can't afford. Why are we so obsessed with maximizing our income numbers, and what do people making $500k per year even do with it all?

I am incredibly stressed about this whole situation. I can’t stop reading the news and just fearful for my family and for the world. Has anyone found any coping mechanisms while social distancing?
Took an offer with a competitor because I was not feeling my team anymore. Got recommended by an ex-manager who brought me in, coached me and red carpeted my interview process. Very grateful!
My company countered when I gave my 2 weeks & switched me into a different division. Now I want to stay, since I always loved my company (just not that dept) and I got a promo.
How do I salvage the relationship with the ex-manager? Desperate to not burn this bridge as they are truly a wonderful person.
Great little primer/summary. Basically, the only way out of mass social distancing/shutdown is massive testing. But lifting restrictions before mass testing is very VERY dangerous.
Yes please! 😆
Kids are world weary already
People are protesting stay at home orders all over and the focus just happens to be on Michigan where a female Democrat Governor happens to be. 🤔
Why does Fauci get all the fanfare? I find Birx to be quite knowledgeable as well yet never see her name on here.
What will salaries look like if agencies and companies do start offering flex and WFH? I know, myself, I’d move from NY to PA or Maryland. If not the company, I could see the government finding a way to tax it.
Could totally see companies like Amtrak profiting by adding a bullet train between NY and DMV
Can anyone recommend a good moving company? I’m moving out of my 1bd apt in NYC to Nashville, and the quotes I’ve been getting are astronomical.
If you were interviewing for a company through a recruitment company and was told that the company hired a previous employee in a role with the intention of it becoming a lead role but the employee did not deliver work to prove he’s abilities to lead. They are looking for a talent like yours to hire. They may hire you with a title like the previous employee and promote you to lead once you prove your abilities. How would you feel and would you walk away? How would you handle the situation?
I really wish my company would reallocate the funds spent on constant cultural engagement zoom events (which I’m always too swamped to attend) to paying some of my phone and internet bills (75% of which is used for work).
Amtrak rewards extended ayy
Do you buy gifts for your significant others family on Christmas? When In the relationship did that start? I’m asking cause I don’t celebrate Christmas but don’t wanna be rude. We’ve been together for awhile and his family never buys me anything so I never thought much about it except this year his mother is getting me a wallet and now I feel weird.
I’ve maintained a bubble of five other people since March. I live in a state where the governor has mandated masks indoors and outdoors with people not in your household. I feel I’ve been responsible this whole time by not socializing with others outside my group, not eating in restaurants, not traveling. I’ve supported restrictions to curb the spread, but this one seems just too far. Am I wrong if I want to go spend time with someone I’m seeing without a mask because we don’t live together?
Me cooking for my gf while WFM.
When people ask me about my SO, I tell them he is German from Berlin. They have a surprised reaction and they say, “Wow!”. I’ve had this same reaction 3 times with different people at work. What’s the big deal?
What is the point of life I am seriously so bored??? Every day I do my job so I can buy nice things and then stare at my phone all day and then go to sleep. Before you ask me to find my passion, I am too tired.
I miss wearing my suits to the point that I feel like wearing them and walking around in the house and building :))
My grandma passed away today. I wasn’t able to see her for two years because of the pandemic. It sucks so much. I am her favorite grandkid and she has been missing me so much yet I couldn’t go. I feel so bad. She was so healthy until she fell a few months ago.
