How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed? I’m at a point where I’m considering getting an official diagnosis from a doc. It’s interfering with my day to day ie I easily zone out and get real anxious halfway through conversations (even short ones) Zoom calls are no better. I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)

Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.

Just found out I’m pregnant with our third child and I’m a nervous wreck. Moms with 3 or more kids... how do you handle it when both parents work full time with busy schedules?

Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?
Has anyone ever had this happen to them. I am a senior design freelancer working on a fairly large project, lots of requested variations over the last 2 weeks. The lead acct person keeps mentioning “we’re burning too hot!!” Yet keeps asking for more changes and variations… What gives? Seems like a recipe to move the project to a FT team member to me. Lol
