Get enough rest.

I do. I try everything. I take tins of vitamins. I also take a product called Fitteam which has helped my energy and mood. I have found I am not so tired, but I also switched positions. It is tough. Oh, I also drink coffee!

I guess I should also add that I still have three children at home. Some days I just have to stay in bed because I am just not able to function. However, things are way better for me energy-wise this year.

Getting enough rest, taking my meds, and cutting out as much as possible unnecessary stress or stressors, positive self talk, prayer. For me, prayer and the love of my dog are the real reasons I manage to get up because this health journey is no cake walk.

Is my complete lack of motivation to do any work and be on any deal or honestly just not work in general a symptom of burnout of my firm or depression?

I just don’t want to be employed anymore. I wish that were an option but we have bills, obviously.

Anybody never think about retirement? In my head I’m gonna work until I die (from home, obviously). I’ve been on short term disability a few times and I was so bored out of my mind.

HR keeps trying to paper me up with speed to output crap because they think I’m sick, but the reality is that I’m terminal and probably won’t be around to see the end of this. God I hope they don’t pretend to put up a caring memorial when I’m gone.

Went out this weekend for my cousin’s 21st bday. My cousin ended up getting super sick, throwing up at the bar, etc. my buddy and his gf came to the same bar (they were celebrating gf’s bday). Seeing my cousin in a bad state I decided to take her home. My buddy’s gf got super mad at me and my gf for wanting to care for my cousin. She then gave a half assed apology saying she was annoyed at the situation. I don’t really know how to bring this up to my friend. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
