I feel like I'm living a dream. Not a good one; but not a bad one either. Life just doesn't feel real anymore. I feel like I'm just existing and I just really don't care about much.

I want to do ECVC work with tech co’s and one day exit to a VC firm or pre-IPO co. I have offers in SF and NYC for top tier law firms in this practice. What city is better long term career-wise?

Initially, I figured SF was the better city because of proximity to the Valley, but I’ve been hearing a lot about the migration of tech and VC to NYC (and globally, in general). On a personal level, both cities are great options for me.

Hey All, looking for guidance related to fiber supplements. Little background on myself, I lift 6 days a week, HIIT 3x weekly, tennis 3x weekly, and golf (walking only) 1-2x weekly. I went to the Dr. for my annual physical, and my weight was way higher than I thought it would. As active as I am and as healthy as I eat, I’m quite surprised. I’ve taken fiber supplements in the past, and I’m thinking I may need to get back on them.

I wanted to thank this bowl for listening/empathizing. I have suffered from depression and took steps to feel better (including antidepressants, therapy, exercise, and talking about my mental health). Took a while, but I am feeling better. Some days are hard, but I can say I am progressing. I hope this message serves as HOPE for people who are also suffering, because when you’re down it feels like it won’t end. But it IS possible to feel normal and feel happiness again. Hang in there 🙏🏻❤️

I'm feeling incredibly anxious and honestly depressed right now because of work. I had already been feeling demotivated and wanting to leave but I was told on Monday that I was being out on probation for one year (I am not going into detail on this). And now my manager is pressing me about finding a new project role as I have been on the bench for more than a month, and one possible one may require travel. I just want to get out of my job now and hear back from the 10+ applications I have now.

I have been really depressed for about 6 months and it’s hurting my 4-year relationship. My psychiatrist has had me on various meds for other things, but he won’t give me Wellbutrin, which is the one SSRI that I feel comfortable taking. It seems like every day, im getting worse. When work is slow, I’m more depressed, because I’ve lost interest in everything outside of work. My boyfriend is my only friend, but I think he doesn’t love me anymore. Thx for reading my nonsense post.
