Does this work at just a regular primary care doctor/physician? Vs a psychiatrist. Any cons to this approach? Looking to do the same at ey

I had a bunch of interviews lined up, then left without a written offer. The time to complete interviews plus the time before my start date came out to 3 months. I understand this is risky, but I was ok with that and was financially prepared. Maybe look into taking a LOA. That is one avenue I should have explored, but honestly it didn’t matter in the end.

Need to vent. Several times this year I have needed to cancel events for legitimate issues (surgery, I’m in trial, cases just being transferred to our office, short notice/urgent doctor’s appointments, family health scares, and pregnancy complications). Every time I have a male attorney on the other side it ends up in a f*cking battle over scheduling. I don’t understand it. I’ve been practicing for 6 yrs & it’s gotten exponentially worse over time. When did lawyers stop being people???

Ex - if I currently make $100k as a permanent fte and my next job I want to make is $125k but I go from permanent to contract work, what is a suitable figure to ask for? Need to calculate paying taxes and the benefits I would be losing.

I haven’t been feeling good about myself lately. Been depressed about my weight, my job search, and my health but I’m going to try to make a change. Today I decided to start being healthy again. I went to the gym this morning, got 8 hrs of sleep last night, and even made plans to hang out with friends this weekend. It’s not much but it’s a start and hopefully the beginning of a consistent and successful journey. To anyone going through the same thing, it will get better! We have to push through❤️
