I am 4 months pregnant and jus treated positive for covid. I am so scared and nervous but all the research seems to be all over the place and my doctors seem calm. But has anyone experienced this or any guidance available to share? Thank you
Just took time off because I had covid and my grandma passed away. Now my dad is in the ICU and looking rough. I want to crumble in a ball.
TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.
I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)
Just moved to a new city in US for a job post-consulting. How do I meet people and make friends in a Covid-safe way?
My little sister got engaged today. She’s so in love and she truly found her soulmate. I’m so happy for her but I can’t help but feel bad for me. She’s always been an over achiever and has always “beat” me in everything (job, looks, love, social life etc). She and her fiancé are moving into a nice new condo in an amazing city while I’m single and stuck with my parents because I got laid off during Covid. I love my sister, but I’m so sad about my current state. I don’t know how to feel better.
Got an admit to Haas EMBA program. Not sure if i should join, given the whole covid situation we are in. Would love to hear others perspectives.
So i have a question for any physicians out there. Out of all of these COVID-19 cases that develop PNA, how many have you seen end up septic? And do these septic covid patients respond well to the 3-6 hour sepsis bundles? Has there been alteration in the treatment for sepsis secondary to covid-19? Asking out of curiosity...

Not sure if anyone has experience with this but figured I’d ask. My 8yo daughter has been gaining weight over the last 2 years. Started during covid being home a lot and I guess eating more than normal. Schedules now are back to normal and she’s still gaining. I’ve gotten rid of all unhealthy food in the house but she will eat a lot of everything, always wants seconds and very hard to control. I don’t know what to do. Is it too early for a nutritionist?
How to go about resigning during COVID? Obviously can’t do it in person so who have people called versus emailed? Do I need a formal resignation letter? How do I set up the call without it being obvious what it’s about? Clearly new to a 2 week notice so any advice would be great 😂

Just arrived to Sydney from Chicago with my wife and 2 sons both under 2. Escorted to hotel quarantine and spending these 2 weeks trying to figure out if I would/could/should make the move to Sydney permanent. Wife and kids are Australian citizens.

If a company says that your salary expectations from the application are a little higher than what they thought but are willing to accommodate, is there still room for negotiation?
They mentioned this in the first interview so just curious if this is just a tactic and it’s well within their salary range they exact to pay.

You can try, but if I were your landlord I’d make your life miserable as you moved out. Zero flexibility and the unit better be pristine when you vacate. It’s not that big of a deal, just be a decent human and cooperate.
Much better to be cooperative. Just wear a mask and ask them to wear one too when they visit.
Or better yet, leave for a few hours.
Or provide them time slot in which you won’t be in the apartment, like in the morning of some weekend, or afternoon when you go out for coffee or dinner.
Yea I would be annoyed too even if it wasn’t Covid. I’m a germaphobe and wouldn’t strangers walking through my place and touching my stuff I.e. door knobs, etc. But I never lived in an apt so don’t know if it’s normal to be required to show the place while you’re still occupying it.
What does your lease say ?
If you’re renting there is really no way you can say no in perpetuity. They most likely have the right to enter when they need to as the owner of the property. Find a time that works for you but if you’re moving out, they are going to show the apt.
It’s usually written into your lease that landlords can come through as long as they give 24 or 48 hours notice.
Make it a requirement masks and booties must be worn and will not be provided.
