Love this!!! Just gave birth last month. They did a Covid test on me while I was giving birth without an epidural (NOT my plan) so it was quite traumatizing overall. Same feelings - love your intro blog post. I thought we would be taken care of properly. Crazy how they don’t give much info and throw you in the wild. I’m sorry about your breastfeeding experience. Happens more often than not. If it makes you feel any better, I was never breast fed and I turned out to be very healthy, aced my studies academically, in sports, have no allergies, an excellent sleeper, rarely get sick. 🙃 There’s a lot of pressure in the US about breast feeding that other countries with great healthcare / healthy populations don’t inflict on their women. Just sharing a different POV because it makes me sad to see women get so worried and anxious when they can’t breastfeed. We non breast fed humans are doing great :) Anyway thank you for your blog. So great to see our experiences reflected ♥️

My husband and I have a huge combined family. They are also...well...loud. By loud I mean, laughing, debating, talking, all in good cheer. But sometimes arguments can erupt, and there's really no shortage of entertainment and sometimes drama. We're having a smaller gathering this year and wondering what's the best way to navigate all things COVID and health - we love to be close, hug, etc but I know everyone has different comfort levels and I want to be gracious and appease. What's your expert opinion? #QA

Seeking to understand: I have a good friend who struggles with anxiety. Whil I try to be there for her and be understanding, sometimes it feels very one-sided. I went through a very rough health scare myself about a month ago and I realized she wasn’t really there for me and even when we talk, it’s mostly about her and what is stressing her out.  I know she doesn’t mean to make it about her, but it does frustrate me. I don’t want to get resentful but im starting to. Any advice or perspective?

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though.

Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
