Not more these past 2 months. My doc says I can slip into a manic episode (I have BP1) if I’m pushing it this far. My project is under a lot of pressure and a lot of people on the team are feeling the same pressure. I don’t want to drop this on them given everything else that’s happening and am holding out by the week but this is seriously wearing on me. I had to take a few days off here and there to manage it. My managers have been understanding but overall just feels like I’m in a rough spot and I want it to get better.

Feeling frustrated. Our reentry was delayed again, so I’m trying to get confirmation to continue teaching from home since we have a little baby. Well, admin says we have to get approval from HR, and HR says it’s really up to the principal whom they can’t get a hold of. If I have to go in then I’m taking sick days until my maternity leave kicks in next Thursday.  It seems simple enough to me that they would want me to keep teaching my own kids. HR seems to be on my side.

I found a new job (huzzah!) and turned in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. But I started feeling crummy last night and went to the doctor for a COVID test today. Lab results already came back positive. So now I feel super guilty about basically calling in sick to my last two weeks of work...should I try and push out my start date to help out current employer? Feel like current supervisor is going to throw a hissy fit.

First time mom, gave birth three days ago to a baby boy. He had really low blood sugar on his second day and was almost comatose so he had to be taken to NICU to be monitored and tested every time he feeds.
