I started seeing a therapist and started medication as well - made a huge difference! Also, we are living in very heavy times. Don’t underestimate the effects of that on top of the difficulty and stressors of parenting. It is understandable to not be ok and I’m glad you’ve reached out for help!

…Would be okay. I’ve had 3 so far. I don’t what is going on with me. It breaks my heart to not have the energy to play with my son. I just want to stay busy all day to not think and when he takes his naps I just want him to be up so I have a distraction. How do you moms that cope with depression deal with all the emotions and still keep up with your babies?

Depression manifests in all kinds of ways but consider stress. Everything you describe is what happens when I am faced with a high stress situation at work (could be home for some). Continue with therapy and do small steps like make some healthy meals for you and your kid to eat together. That already is quality time parenting. Remember that this too shall pass - just put one foot before the other and get the help you need

I am proud of you for seeking help. These times are tough. Ask your therapist is it time for meds. I had to start taking something to sleep with. I just could not turn my mind off at night. It has helped a lot

Get your thyroid tested. I was feeling the same way and it turned out I had postpartum hypothyroidism. It’s self resolving in most cases but a synthetic hormone helps to ease the symptoms.

Confession: In one of the parties,An A got so drunk that he spilled all the sutta break gossips in from of Cs and Ms including someone's plan of putting down papers in the coming weeks. He did not stop there, and spilled beans about crushes of some of his teammates in front of whole team and proposed his crush. His next morning in office was different 😂😂😂

So a direct competitor of my startup reach out to me for an intro call. I scheduled a call for Friday and today I got a message from my CEO & Founder “hey buddy, good luck with your call on Friday with our competitor.” I never told anyone about it, but I did schedule the call on my company’s email address (we are about 30 in total in my startup). How did he know? Does he have access to all his employees calendars?

So this watch is not mine, I swapped with a buddy for a week (he’s wearing my GMT). I kinda feel like it’s overhyped. It’s honestly not that great of a watch features wise — I miss having a date, and screw down pushers on a chrono is dumb, and there’s not very much lume for a sports watch. Sure is beautiful though.

I’m looking at apartments and will need to break my current lease (issues w the apt maintenance and neighbors) - would you recommend finding an apt first before asking the landlord to let me out of my lease or reaching out to them first? I’m enjoying the process of not being rushed into finding another place and I’m concerned that asking them to let me out before finding something else will create a rush. I appreciate any thoughts or guidance.
