Can we claim tax relief on items bought to be able to work from home? I've spent maybe 1500 on my setup, desk, chair, monitor etc. Can I deduct that?

Maybe the Army will finally learn that working remote (for many jobs) is entirely possible, for short tours of duty. Open up the talent pool and allow people to work where they are.

Has work from home given anyone else anxiety issues? I’ve never once had anxiety problems until now and it’s becoming crippling. It feels like the demands of my time are unreasonable and there is no structure to anything anymore. I feel like every single person expects that I respond to their emails immediately and send follow up emails or call like 10 mins later. I can’t focus on writing assignments if I am interrupted every 5 minutes and it’s really hurting my work product and mental health.

Honestly being laid off sounds pretty good as a staff working 65 hours a week 🤷‍♂️ would be making more money doing nothing.
