Does anyone have narcolepsy? Any tips on how you’ve managed it? I have had it (undiagnosed) for years and have bee putting up with it.

Is it worth getting officially diagnosed? There doesn’t apper to be any good treatments. 😞

Started a new project a few weeks ago. It was very high burn at the start but I thought that would subside over time. It hasn't. I find myself crying sporadically through the day to get through it, and almost every night before I go to sleep (sometimes at 2,3 am). I have 153 days till I can roll off and idk how I'm going to manage. Anyone gone through this before?

This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me?

A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated

Is United States Passport holder a good gift for someone who's been waiting for Green Card for a long time? Or this is a bad idea?
Feeling so low lately due to keeping up with the joneses and comparing myself. I miss being a kid when I didn’t know what status symbols were and when I didn’t care about money. I remember even as a senior in high school thinking that 70K a year seemed like a massive salary. Sometimes ignorance is bliss I suppose.
