Hey people, I’m looking to get some ergonomic tech for my new job , where they are giving me a MacBook Pro. Does anyone have suggestions for a mouse and an external keyboard? I have a set that I use for my current computer, which is a Lenovo thinkpad, but not sure it will be compatible. I have multiple herniated discs , so trying to be set with my wfh station before starting 🤞 I’m so excited for my role but my neck injury is a huge source of anxiety and discomfort for me

If it’s a Bluetooth set up for your current employer, it will work with a MacBook Pro. Your new employer should also provide support for ergonomics. I believe herniated discs can get an accommodation of office equipment.

I love Microsoft Sculpt, I have like 3 of them in different locations. Best Buy link below if you’re interested, although I’d shop around there might be better prices. Haven’t tried with Mac but the Q&A says it should work.

Current contract - amazing company that has been vocal about bringing me on when approved but no promises. Contract is $60/hr. I negotiated high due to paying private health ins at high $. I was offered a role at a different company for $105K with a $5K sign on and additional benefits. I expressed my need for a $115K base in our original conversation. Anything less than 115K is a paycut from current $ and if I was offered FTE at current contract. Thoughts on negotiating? I dont want to be greedy

For those with frequent panic/anxiety attacks. I used to have extreme agoraphobia & generalized anxiety. Here are 3 quick things I’ve learned in the last 9 months that have helped me come such a longgggg way.

1. Talk Therapy
2. Learning to form true empathy for yourself and what you are going through.
2. Laying down on the ground and letting the anxiety go through your body instead of fighting it. If you feel the shakes, that means your adrenaline is rushing out and you’re almost done!!!👏🎉
