Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.

Feeling sick from anxiety this morning. Knowing I have to leave today and tough week ahead looming
Just got back from a team dinner with the practice leader. I almost gagged myself with my spoon when everyone would laugh at his asinine jokes. #BrownNosers Corporate politics really make me sick.
Anyone have a sensitive stomach? Id love to hear some explanations from the crowd that aren’t a serious medical condition - just an above average sensitivity. I don’t think I have IBS, but I get really triggered by certain foods and they just run right through me. Some triggers I know (too much cream / fat, or conversely a large amount of raw vegetables) but other times it feels really random.
I'm sick of these politicians and their empty campaign promises. I want my Badacaf-care now!
Interested in your thoughts on a new study stating that 28% of the nation’s teachers are “chronically absent” (defined as missing 10 or more days of school- personal and sick- not professional).
😂 I love all the people who look clearly VERY concerned about the "smoke" coming out of the air vents on the plane. I love the people who freak out and ask the FA even more. Sick pleasures.
This may be a dumb question, but what happens if you have your own employer provided health insurance/ medical coverage, and are still on your parents’ coverage? Which becomes your primary?
Desi guys look for american born desi girls or white girls for their American adventures or sought of to fulfill their American fantasies but when it comes to settling down, they go back to the age old "my parents want me to choose a girl from India" BS. Sick of it!
Been with my s/o for 13 years. We have had a lot of ups and downs. She had a really rough upbringing which caused severe anxiety and depression. I tried splitting up but I could sense she was unraveling and we'd always end up back together. Eventually I felt so stuck/got so sick of it that I went to grad school out of state (wasn't the right move i know but I couldn't get through to her that it was taking a toll). Long distance sucked, and her depression turned into suicidal behavior. (Cont).
TFW you're already sick of winter and realize winter hasn't even officially started yet.
Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?

Taking medical leave because of my anxiety and depression issues. Need to figure out what to do. Perhaps an intensive outpatient program. Terrified of what’s to come
How do you develop healthy financial boundaries with parents? My mother made a lot of sacrifices for myself and my sister growing up but she’s starting to feel like a burden. She’s just refused to go for more in life mostly because she’s been in a financially, emotionally and on one rare occasion, physically abusive relationship. It’s not that I don’t want to help her but she’s getting older and I’m trying to save for possible medical expenses. I have an account dedicated to that which — cont’d
When applying to my next employer, do they need to know/do they find out that I was on short term disability at one point while at my current employer? I fear this would ding me as they would view me as a potential risk.
Sick and tired of seniors saying “it’s really easy” when they forget we haven’t seen this before and giving zero explanation when you ask a question lol thanks guys 🤷♀️

Anyone else frustrated that their friends don't have enough money or PTO to do anything fun? I'm 28, single, and I really want to jetset at least a LITTLE after this whole pandemic, but I don't have any adventure buddies :( not trying to sound spoiled- in the case of my friends, they just chose more restrictive career paths. I'm afraid to lose these years before people are married and having kids and REALLY can't do anything

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
Hello All, I was visiting Fishbowl's LinkedIn account and saw it was highlighting particular bowls. Would it be OK to ask for the Women in Tech bowl to be highlighted? The reason being is October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I'd think this would be tie in really nicely. Maybe we can have a "paint fishbowl pink" initiative? I'm trying to get one done at my work with Pink Zoom backgrounds, etc. Thank you for your attention!
