I notice this is a pretty serious issue at work but it also happens in my daily life, where for some reason I don’t seem to grasp details or what they mean sometimes. For reference, I have been diagnosed with hyposomnia (opposite of insomnia where I’m actually tired all the time)..not sure if that’s what’s causing this


Stress deninishes cognitive areas or you might just need sleep


Always. Also feel like I forget things. Like if I'm trying to put in a number in excel, I'll have to go back and reread the digits even tho I just saw that number seconds ago.


Stress, sleep loss and depression will have a significant effect on short-term memory and ‘executive function’ - which is all about judgment and decision-making (in psychiatric terms)

I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed.

What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?

I know this has been discussed before in this thread but I am new to fishbowl and want to hear people’s thoughts and experiences. I worked at big 4 tax for 3 years and then jumped to middle market because heard the grass was greener. Now I’m realizing tax may just not be what I want to do so I was hoping to get some advice on how to transition to a new field. I have friends going to get their mba but with a masters already I just want to know what other options there may be. Thanks for the help!

I have been crying non stop for the past two days after finding out my fiancé might have cheated on me. He gets all defensive and has been ignoring me. I think my PTSD is triggering this depression.
