I like what I do but putting my body through hell like this twice a year just seems completely ludicrous.

That’s a fair point. If we had more and better-equipped resources then some of us wouldn’t get overworked.

Yuppppppppp. I’m done. Mentally, physically, and emotionally. I have 100 hours of PTO, can’t wait to burn some of it. Taking the week after Thanksgiving off to have a week and a half off, then taking a few extra days at Christmas.

Nah. This year was worse. The only years that beat this were 08/09 and a few that followed due to the layoffs and not hiring during and after the recession.

Yesss

Yes

How do you feel about splitting everything 50-50 with your partner? I don’t feel as rigid about it bc I feel it balances out one way or another, but my partner feels as if he owes me if we don’t split 50-50 and I pay more. I get where he’s coming from but 50-50 just feels transactional and not intimate. For context: I make 3x more than he does and he’s still finishing his medical fellowship, so I don’t feel it’s a matter of feeling less than.

I always take my pandemic medical advice from Sean Paul.

I now understand why people don’t trust for profit medical institutions. For the last few years my doctor has ordered the same biopsies and tests for me. This year she ordered an invasive surgery. I got my medical records and had my friend who is a nurse read the documents, & she didn’t understand why some of the tests were performed or why the surgery was recommended when 1) the tests came back low risk 2) she said it’s abnormal to do that procedure, they usually go a way less invasive route.
