I have a diagnosis for three disabilities and I have been getting treatment for them for a while. I have not disclosed it to HR or anyone outside my family. It's such a huge stigma. Even my own family judges. I can't imagine how hard it would be at the workplace. I applaud those of you who have come forward and talked about it.

The more of us who talk about it, the more “normal” it becomes! Good for you for taking care of yourself.

Everyone has their own stuff. You’d be amazed how many people around you are fighting similar battles and don’t speak up.


OP wishing you the best. Keep doing whatever works for you. You don't have to disclose if you don't want so totally up to you. God bless!

Interviewing for a product designer IC job at Meta, I was told by the recruiters that final panel would be 2 ICs and 1 manager. My schedule has 3 managers, no ICs and no other functions. I asked - told it was just due to scheduling constraints. I think managers just naturally have more experience and more stringent standards (generally). Is this worth asking to set up the more standard panel for me even if it takes longer to schedule? Or is this a non-issue? Just want an equitable experience

Any introverts out there who were loving quarantine? I still enjoy not commuting and definitely LOVE no useless small talk with folks who don’t really care about your personal life lol.

Gonna be on a client for two more months and it stresses me out. Our senior quit, and we're treated like GDS from the main team. Probably even worse ,since we get no instructions at all. Cont.

I've realized that one of my major stressors is financial. While I am making more than some of my peers, I know that by comparison with colleagues I am making less. I know it's not the best to worry about this, but it does affect me. At the same time, I am not sure how to deal with it. Any advice?


Can get over homesickness. I don’t know what to do anymore

I have been crying non stop for the past two days after finding out my fiancé might have cheated on me. He gets all defensive and has been ignoring me. I think my PTSD is triggering this depression.

I have been lying to myself since I can remember, that loneliness is not that bad. Yes, I can be strong and all... but I am so tired of being strong. I have a family to take care off and I feel like a failure if I am not successful in everything I do.
I need help, and tell myself that another drink will make all this better, or would numb me enough not to matter.
Lately, I am struggling with the fact that no matter how hard I try to reframe my situation...


Does anyone feel genuinely happy outside of work but then get severely depressed during busy season?
