Have an ill parent (1 year recovered from a severe heart attack) who has really been super mean/verbally abusive recently to both me and my siblings e.g. mood swings, focusing on our deficiencies, putting my sister down for her new job, etc. Pretty traditional background so not sure we can suggest therapy/counseling for them to get their emotions regulated, and I feel bad being angry w them given their health. Anyone been through something similar/have any advice? Thanks so much.
It looks like we won’t be returning to traveling at least in the next 6 months, over a year in my project. Sick of being in a tiny apartment in NYC. Lease is ending March 15th. Thinking of looking for a possible place (1BR) preferably close to the beach to spend at least the summer that’s not insanely far from NYC where I can return without it being cross country. Any suggestions of where to look? Good idea?
Has anyone ever resigned immediately following short term disability? Did you give two weeks notice upon your return?
Hi friends, anyone recently submit a response to a medical RFE for an I-485? If so, what did your timeline look after that? i.e. status changed to “RFE received” on USCIS website and green card issued?
Want to get a nose job. Do you think I can take a sick leave for it or need to take PTO since a nose job is a not a required medical procedure?

Tore my ACL this week and had surgery and am planning on using short term disability for the next 4 weeks.

I'm pregnant with my first baby and unsure when to tell people at work. Part of me thinks ill be overlooked for any good case work as soon as they know.
Also, if I take a year out will I find it impossible to come back?

Just came across a startup that takes medical bills from patients and allows them to set up a payment plan with 0 interest and 0 fees to pay down their medical expenses.
The startup makes their money by negotiating with providers a upfront cash discount and the startup fronts the $ it then collects from patients. Does this work? Thoughts?
I know it won’t make a big difference in the payslip as it’s a taxable benefit but is it worth keeping the private medical in the UK? All this time I’ve never used it and we need to go through the NHS first anyway for pretty much everything.
Am going on medical leave, told my CC and practice MD. Did not tell PM because I wanted to look at options for working part time instead. PM calls me, upset I didn't run my emergency leave by him +
What’s the probability of getting a medical RFE in GC process for eb1c? I got a letter saying medical reminder but doesn’t look like an RFE, just a generic letter. Also, my Pwc lawyer suggested we just wait for an RFE but for me time is priority and I don’t to have any hold ups. Need advice please.
Anyone else find it rude/annoying when people come into work when they’re sick? Our firms have generous sick pay policies and wfh opportunities, it just means illness spreads easily and unnecessarily

Anybody on prescription meds for anxiety? If so, which one and how effective is it? Think I need to see a doc, cause the stress is making me miserable AF. Sunday evenings are the worst.

What does a corporate strategy team actually look like within an industry firm? How is the day to day different than a consulting team on a strategy project
I’m looking to take a exploratory trip to look at purchasing a franchise. I’m flying into a smaller airport that does have a Hertz. I’m a PC within Hertz, does anyone know how I should book my car to make sure I can be updated to something fancy 😁. Do you call or will that have options there, any thoughts/suggestions?
Are there any other cat lovers here?
Looking for advice re maternity leave. About a year ago I moved to a new state but have continued working for the same small firm remotely. Everything is basically the same, except I am not doing any in-person hearings, depos, meetings, etc. Also, we changed my pay structure so I am now paid a percentage of everything I bill, which has turned out to be a good bit more than what I was making before on a set salary. That, coupled with the flexibility to generally work whenever I want (cont below)
This is the truth!!!
