How do you cope with stress? I used to stress eat but now that I'm on the other side of 30, my comfort foods make me feel sick and baby carrots don't give me the same boost that a chocolate cookie used to. Help a sista out with ideas. Tyia.

Go for a walk. Make a cup of my favorite tea. Take a deep breath and make a list of things I am grateful for. Play a reggae song (Skankin Sweet by Chronixx). Remind myself of all the other things going on in my life that have nothing to do with the situation that I am stressed about.


Meditation and cuddling my dog. Also calling a go-to friend know knows how to deescalate my spirals


Worth noting, I can't simply fix the situation that is causing stress.

Long baths…

How do you respond to all the negativity of childless people? I get that they are not the norm and trying to defend their decisions, but I get so sick of hearing how “amazing” the personal and financial freedoms are and the good life I give up by having kids. I already feel like I took a hit to my personal career goals and this is the icing on the resentment cake. I wonder how fulfilling bar hopping is 20 years deep


I've had a rough two weeks. Have been really sick. And one of my dogs has been an A+ snuggler (and learned new touch commands to make my life easier). And I think my husband is tired of me raving about her. So I'm gonna rave here. She's so freaking smart and sweet. (And the same genetic issue that took away her hearing and most of her sight also gave her those gorgeous eyes.)

Already completed my timesheet for next week. Next Tuesday and Wednesday I’m expected to be sick 😉


Recently 1 of my clients initiated open PTO policy. The transition from set leave balance to open was smooth process. However we are running into dilemma of how we standardize different types of leaves and whether there will be a limitation to how much open PTO is used at one time. For leisure, we just limit taking two weeks max at one time. However if we have volunteer policy or bereavement policy how should we standardize it? If EE is out for longterm sick, how do we standardize time paid?

Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me. Most of our friends have kids who are able to mask up or are vaccinated and it’s getting quite isolating. Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.

Hey peeps. How do y’all deal with in laws that think they have the right to see your kid basically on demand. It’s my parents actually, not my wife’s. I’m about to give them an ultimatum......

I’ve used up all my sick leave while on maternity leave. We have six days left and I’m feeling very ill. I don’t know if I can make it to Saturday right now. Should I try to get a drs note or suffer?

Just had my second MC. Back to back. I waited a full year for my body to recover and be in optimal shape. My bloodwork was perfect. I did all testing with a fertility doctor. Everything was good. I got pregnant easily.. yet, I lost the baby at 6w5D. Last year I lost the baby at 8w5D. I feel so defeated. My heart can’t take more losses anymore. My first pregnancy was a breeze.. 2nd and 3rd.. ended in tears and sadness.

With the looming threat of recession, should I stop the aggressive payments I have been making on my student loans? Fishes, would love to have your thoughts on this - I graduated school last year and have been aggressively paying down my student loans (50K left now, started at 91K last summer). With a recession looking likely, should I revert to minimum payments and save more? For context, I have enough saved right now for 4-5 months of living expenses plus some additional money in 401K.
