Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
All I can think of right now is the old REM song lyrics "It's the end of the world as we know it." I definitely DON'T feel fine. I'm not sick, but I'm sick about the US shutting down everything.

I’ve been dealing with a lot in a few aspects of life - family, breakup, and work pushing me into an undesirable role…it has started to exhibit in physical symptoms like depression, insomnia, and fainting spells.

I hate that it takes me being sick on the couch for a weekend to realize I need to chill TF out and take care of Me first.
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
Unfortunately my wife is unable to return to work due to some medical issues. Her medical leave is about to end. I have always taken a backseat to support her career and worked from home CTND
Anyone used Botox to treat TMJ/teeth-grinding? My dentist said i should get a mouth guard and potentially do some physical therapy. I seem to be doing a lot of clenching/teeth grinding in the night. I was googling other options and came across a suggestion for Botox. I already get Botox in my forehead for cosmetic purposes so I'm not worried about Botox generally, but unsure how common it is in the jaw for this medical purpose.

Life / Career Advice: I applied to medical school since my MCAT score was set to expire, ended up getting into 1 program. I also have an opp to join a well funded/well established Healthtech Startup (6 figure salary w/ equity + benefits) as a BD professional. I enjoy the business side of things and am unsure if I would end up practicing Medicine (medicine is also a long arduous path). At the same time, having an MD holds a lot of clout/authority in HC. Any thoughts on what I should do?

Need advice. My sons have kids ATV things. More hard core than a power wheels but not true ATV (they go 8 mph I think). My kids were riding in our culdesac with husband watching. Husband and oldest came inside for a few minutes and in that time, neighbors tiny 4yo jumped on his and crashed on our driveway. Broke her arm. 😩 We would never have allowed her to ride and her parents NEVER supervise when she’s outside. Are we dicks for not offering to cover some/all of medical bills? I don’t feel

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.

My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
People - really struggling with this - was supposed to move to bay area for husband’s tech job. I can work remotely. But with COVID I’m not sure if we should make the move. We feel the world will move to a remote/ WFH mode. We want to buy a house and settle down before our kid arrives. Should we move to a cheaper city like Phoenix so we have a big house for cheap and 2 home offices. Am I missing anything?
