Hey, I feel for you. I had about a year or two off due to health issues myself. It's hard to regain confidence in yourself when you rejoin, but once you're back in the right thing you should be fine. Welcome back and glad you're doing better.

uplifting

Scrolling through FB late into the night because I am currently unemployed due to Crohn's Disease + pandemic. It's been super hard for me because the pandemic hit just as I was getting out of a bad flareup. I feel like the competition is higher than ever and people are just switching jobs for the fun of it at this point, which really is tough for people like me (and maybe you). Just feels greedy if I'm being really honest, but of course people have every right to pursue the life they want. It's just, I guess I feel resentful and like things are a bit pointless. However, you've got super positive spirits and a lot of things going on. I am sure something will come through for you and sorry for being a bother on here. Just appreciate that I'm not alone! Also I hope that your biz does well as you keep on going.

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?

I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
