Anyone see a registered dietician without having a very pressing health issue (as in, stomach issues or obese)? I just lack the willpower and focus to really effectively control my eating, I’d love to have someone to hold me accountable and help identify specific triggers I have personally to lose like 15-20 pounds. How did you go about finding one?
22, healthy, single, M. Should I really max my HSA? I completely understand the triple tax savings but my thought process is I don’t think I’ll have a large med expense for a while. I know, I know, I know anything could happen but the likelihood is pretty low rn and I don’t want to lock this money up for solely health costs when I rather be saving for a house down payment or continued education. I still plan to contribute to it, but should I really max it out at my age??
Since partners no longer get subsidized health care coverage from their firms, do any partners purchase health care through the aca marketplace exchange? Even without a premium tax credit from the exchange, it would have to be cheaper than paying full price via the firm’s plan unsubsidized. I heard that some get coverage thru a spouse’s plan, but what if the spouse’s family plan from their employer is really bad? Curious to hear about options out there.

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?
Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?

I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
