I’m so sorry, that’s awful. Is it possible for you to switch teams / projects?

Idk, they just got me into this new team to support a project as my secret clearance got denied to work on the projects that I was initially hired for. I am not for the USA so everything is harder for me, language barriers... I just feel so awful that I can’t hold it together for my baby right now. I can’t stop crying

I’m sorry! You are a single parent and working in a foreign language - that is so, so hard. Be as kind to yourself as you’d be to a stranger - I am sure you are doing everything that you can! I am a single mom and I get pulled in so many directions, you just can’t give everything in your life all of your time like you did when you were just caring for yourself. And on any given day work might be asking for it. You’re only human! This will all be okay and things will get easier, I promise.

Thank you 🤗 idk why some people are mean and don’t understand when I am having language barriers and might say things differently without meaning it. All I was asking was some help and guidance because this is the first time I was working on something and I don’t want to mess it up because all day and night I am afraid to be fired

I’m so sorry. You are doing the best you can for your baby in a really hard time. There will be better days and projects. I hope there is someone who can advocate for you on a leadership team. But for now I would try and remember others opinions do not define you or reflect the kind of person you are. I am rooting for you and here if you ever want to talk. I am about to be a single mom :)

Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child. Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?

Starting my first IVF and have so many insurance questions that I’m struggling to get answered. I have coverage through Deloitte (Aetna, $25K lifetime cap). So far I have had 3 IUIs but when I called Aetna to see how much of the $25K I’ve used they said I had only used $400 and had claims from my first to IUI sessions. Can this be true? Is the negotiated rate between my provider and insurance really that low? Anyone at Deloitte have experience with this?

Hi folks, I’m in early stages of gaining freelance clients as I look to leave my day job.

I can’t tell people they’re not allowed to ask others opinions - but this is problematic. >>>
