I have another one scheduled with a different psychiatrist that I should still be able to make, but it would have been nice to get two opinions and feel out some different docs.

It’s just frustrating. I’ve been working so hard (therapy, exercise, diet, mindfulness, etc.) and improving but am still struggling. I know ultimately that work is not the cause, but the stress and unpredictability of this project really do not help...

Suggestion: Don’t cancel stuff that helps u especially for work, it’s not worth it.

Hi, I'm an employee at a hotel chain who works remotely. I've been working remotely for over a year now and I love it! The company I work for is very supportive of remote workers, which is great.

But there's one thing that's been bothering me: it's hard to get feedback on my work when I'm not in the office. It would be great if there was some kind of system that let me know how my performance was being evaluated while I'm working on projects from home.

I can’t even manage to get my last name fixed at the ssa coz it’s too long for their system. And I need it fixed for other stuff tied to it. I know this sounds like a petty issue, but stuff has been adding up for a while. If my life doesn’t get better in another decade I’m going to be a monk. That’s the max amount of patience I’ve left for the affairs of the world.
Sorry, needed to vent.
