No but I dream of doing it all the time. I just feel like my anxiety would be worse if I let work pile up bc it's not going anywhere.

Yes. Makes the anxiety worse as I spend all day freaking out about how unreliable I am due to mental illness, which makes my anxiety even worse than it was before I took the day off. Vicious cycle.

If I’m really depressed I’ll try and work from home so I don’t start self sabotaging and burning bridges.

Yes!!!! I take these often bc my co-workers drive me nuts!

My life last few months have been miserable.

Maybe some perspective might be of use to me. I’m transitioning out of the service and I’ve positioned myself decently to be competitive in the market. I’ve got two offers from great companies. Biotech and Healthcare, both on the Human Capital Team as an Employee Relations Consultant. I have a graduate degree pursuing a Doctorate, LSSBB, ScrumMaster, SPHR, and PMI-ACP certified. I know this is personal and dependent, but what should I be considering as a commensurate salary?

So, I started watching “Limitless” with Chris Hemsworth. Apparently, he found out he carries both genes for dementia which puts him at a higher risk. So the series is about him changing things in his life for longevity. The third episode is about fasting and he fasts for 4 days until the day he has to hunt for his food. Does anyone in healthcare have thoughts on this type of fasting? I know it is done in some cultures and religions, but to what extent?
