I have no appetite or desire to eat at all. Maybe two months removed from a breakup and am not generally super happy with life- but I am a foodie and feel like I’ve lost all interest to eat and my love of good food. I eat when I’m so hungry I’m forced to but the thought of food makes me sick. Anyone going through / been through something similar? How did you get it back / fix it?

Hey, I’m sorry. Yes, I suffer from nervous anorexia where after breakups or in stressful parts of a relationship I can barely eat. For example, I might be able to force myself to eat a rice cake and half a banana in a day. One thing is to find calorie-dense things to eat, like nut butter, avocado, coconut or olive oil. Have easy things to eat like a hard boiled egg, toast, piece of cheese to get your calorie and macro requirements. Put collagen or a protein supplement in your water. Fresh juice and broth. Easy to get down. I’ve struggled a lot but I’m doing well now. You have to let yourself heal and find small things every day that bring you joy and gratitude. By the way losing interest in things that being you joy is a sign of depression. It may help to talk to a professional if that’s accessible for you. Exercise can also bring up your appetite.

Thank you so much for sharing and helping me feel less alone. I will try the idea of getting back into the gym and also the calorie dense foods. I really appreciate that ❤️ i am talking to a therapist and I think that helps. I appreciate your insight so much.

Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.

The idea that the vaccine will somehow be dangerous in the future is kind of ludicrous to me.

My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?

FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days).

Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?

Struggling with my husband about his pot smoking. Long story short, he's always been a pot smoker (not during the business hours, but before and after work). Before we had the baby, Ive made it very clear that I dont want him smoking weed so frequently. I understand wanting to unwind before dinner/bed time, but I believe smoking several times a day is unhealthy. We have a 2 months old baby now, and during his paternity leave, he smoked several times a day and napped w. Baby. Continued-

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
