Ever since the weather became cooler, I wake up everyday feeling tired and with a lot of pressure in my head. Even after sleeping enough. My eyes have insane dark circles/sunken look. It makes working very difficult in the mornings. Anyone else experience this? At first I thought it was just the change in weather, now wondering if it’s fall allergies.

Have you had your annual health screen with your OBGYN? Get a blood test to check your vitamin and hormone levels. This same thing happened to me and blood test showed I had thyroid problems.

Are your air filters due for a change? My allergies have also been particularly bad the past few weeks.

You know what’s funny? I live in an apartment and maintenance just stopped by 10 mins ago to change the filter! Could be that or something underlying, but I hope it just allergies.

Agree on checking vitamin and hormone levels. Could be low vitamin D or very easily allergies. You could try taking a claritin and a real Sudafed (from behind the pharmacy counter) and see if that helps. Are you congested too? The netti-pot is a god send for me when my allergies flare up and I’m congested.

Following because the same has been happening to me for the past week or so. Headaches have been rampant but no change in diet, etc.

Let me know if you figure anything out!

I’ve worked with someone who is a few levels above me over the past 2 years, both directly reporting to him and reporting to someone else but working closely with him. I think we get along really well personally but I have a nagging suspicion I annoy him in a professional sense. Mostly because he annoys the shit out of me (micromanages, doesn’t give enough ownership despite giving good feedback, not able to facilitate growth of people under him). Is it reasonable to assume I annoy him too?

I just achieved a very high performance rating at my company (was told I was rated in top 5% across the company).

This hurt so much that I cried and my dad got very upset too “a joyous occasion was ruined and became tragic and sad” he said.
