Just got back to my pre-pregnancy weight this past week!! 🙌 Lost 35 lbs and 20 of them shed during covid. Took me 11 months but finally did it!! All it took was a global pandemic! Cheers 🥂

For the past 3 months I have been having panic attacks and waking up paralyzed with fear of the day ahead. I used to work in industry and I was v good at my job and my confidence was high. Now (2.5y later in consulting) I can barely have the courage to speak with a client and I feel desperate, I need to escape and I can't, no real exit... I started to have thoughts of taking my own life because I don't know how long I can do this for

I was hired on a project to obtain certain approvals but they require some things from management to make a decision on basic things. It feels that I’m driving the ship and management doesn’t have the same urgency as I do to get things done?

I used to work as an agency recruiter and now work as an hr coordinator. I’ve been feeling pretty lousy about how much I make (47k) compared to my friends and with inflation, so I reached out to a company who was a client of mine while recruiting. They offered me almost 80k as an internal recruiter and I’ve accepted the offer. I’m now getting cold feet because I feel like I sort of fell into recruiting and hr and don’t think it’s really my dream or passion.

My friends and family think I have a tendency to be a little neurotic... anyone else in this boat? Any advice? I definitely have anxiety and can be a worrier but I’m not weird about cleaning or anything and I don’t let these worries hold me back from actually doing anything (besides covid stuff, and even then I’ve been on the lax side and go to stores and such).
