Due to the travel bans put in place due to covid19, I’m stuck on another continent away from my country/city of work. I’ve arranged to get a laptop so I can WFH here until I can get on a flight..

.. but I’m worried about what will happen if there’s no flights out for a month or more. Anyone else in a similar situation ?

Genuine question - why did you still go on vacation or not return sooner? It has been clear for weeks where this was going.

Things blew up early in the second week of March with these bans started rapidly being enforced (almost overnight) , scrambled to get back on an earlier flight but they were either completely booked or got cancelled hours before departure.

I have a 16-month-old son and not a single mom friend. It feels so pathetic to write that. I'd love to find other moms so my kid can have playdates, but also so I can have someone to talk to, commiserate with, give advice, etc. Because of COVID, there isn't much opportunity to interact with other parents at daycare dropoff, and with classes and playgroups scarce, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips or success stories? Or anyone in Brooklyn want to be friends?

Hello! I’m a nurse in a pediatric ambulatory setting. I woke up yesterday with muscle aches/pains, headache, and intermittent shortness of breath. I got tested yesterday for Covid and I’m waiting on my results. If this is Covid, does anyone have any advice on managing symptoms at home and surviving isolation?

33 yo, separated heading to divorce, 2 young kids, demanding professional job, COVID. Pretty sure I'm going to be alone forever or at least a very long time. In a major metro where most people my age are just starting to think about families. I know I do not want any more kids, so potential partners who want their own kids are out. Most people don't want to be step-parents. Between that dynamic and working all the time, can't imagine meeting anyone. Besides that though, life is great!

Recently I lost a close family member, which has been pretty tough. My boyfriend and I are relatively new in our relationship (6 months) but due to covid concerns wouldn’t see me for three weeks (I went home to Wisconsin for a celebration of life that followed cdc guidelines (limited group, all outside, all 6 feet apart, masks etc.) and I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for such an important thing and tested negative after, I’m wondering how much is realistic to expect in terms of support from SO?

I constantly feel pressured to have a side project/side hustle/creative outlet out of advertising but I don’t. I got into advertising because of advertising and I’ve done a lot of work I’m proud of. That’s not to say I’m not experiencing, absorbing, reading, watching a bunch of different things. I just don’t really want to do anything else creative related like music, paint, start a podcast or side project. The pressure is just getting to me and I feel inclined to just for the sake of it...
