If you miss your billable hours target but are pregnant and have announced the pregnancy to the firm, are you more protected and given leniency in your review?
My bipolar father has ruined our whole family's lives. He won't take his medicine, keeps having episodes, and only cares about himself. I only feel hatred when I am around him or see his face. He has made us miserable. I don't know how to deal anymore. He doesn't even know me anymore, he doesn't know any of us, but will put up an act in front of the world. I don't know what having a dad looks like. Apologies for the vent.
We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)

Old people are really into holding us youngins accountable over our decision to take out student loans, but every time we catch one of them in a blackface (or insert your own personal favorite) scandal, they always say "I was just a kid; I didn't know any better." Something ain't adding up here... 🤔

For the attorney moms, how do you focus/prioritize work? I’m a recent-ish mom and have been back to work for about 2 years at two different firms in that time. But I constantly struggle with guilt and putting off or slacking on work because it feels like my brain is hardwired to prioritize time with my child. I always feel like I’m lacking in one department. Will it ever get better? Any tips or similar experiences welcome!

Female 🐠 that have divorced. Were you able to recover, especially financially? Looking back would you stick it out? I would primarily be supporting our child since I earn more.

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
