What are your three mail life goals?
Anyone else starting to put their foot down with recruiters or am I late to the party🤣? They reach out for an opportunity without client or comp info, and then ask you to run through your resume. Buddy, you reached out to me 🤣
I keep having a variation of a recurring nightmare and had it again last night. I am at a conference or crowded meeting for work and no one is wearing masks. In my dream, I am terrified of being around the maskless people and in the crowds. I keep saying “we shouldn’t be here. This is dangerous.” In last night’s dream, people were coughing and then I started coughing too. I was scared I had COVID and woke up. Anyone else have maskless anxiety dreams?

I recently interviewed at Facebook (Meta) for enterprise engineer E4. Feedback from recruiter was very positive. Everyone on panel recommended me. Received an offer for 223 TC. My current salary is significantly higher (amzn L5/sde2). I am walking out but curious:
1. Is that a standard meta offer? I thought meta pays better than amzn and googl.
2. I have been asked by my recruiter to provide my current salary as data point to go back and negotiate. Isn't that illegal? Facebook (Meta)
Ladies, how long does it take you to get ready in the morning. Trying to cut down my morning routine to 25 min max.
Our district is in the middle of some tough negotiations and our union PR committee is tossing around idea of getting shirts to promote our teachers. Anyone out there have district mottos or T-shirta
Hate it when kids kick your seat throughout a 4hr flight and the parents are sleeping peacefully. Little mofos
Contracting or full time ?? Contracting pay would be double my yearly wage , worth it ??
Not that I am planning to relocate anytime soon but wanted to have your thoughts on which country you think is a safer option to relocate to?
Earlier I was interested to move somewhere in Europe but with the whole Russia and Ukraine situation and now possibility of Sweden and Finland joining NATO and Russia telling them not to, I don't think Europe might be a good option in the coming years.
Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Anyone quit drinking to help with depression/anxiety, and did it help? Think about giving it a try, but man sometimes drinking just hits the stop after a long day or week.
Hi everyone. I've been in therapy on and off for years for anxiety, but I'm thinking of trying antidepressants.
I got a new job this year (in a new practice area) and I'm having trouble managing. It's to the point where I can't relax at home because I'm worried about things at work. I feel like I've lost the ability to filter out my worries.
I'm hesitant to try medication because I don't want to "not care" and miss a big deadline or make a mistake.
Anyone care to share their experiences?
Feeling the hangxiety this morning. You know when you go to a christmas party and drink a lot and maybe not obviously embarrass yourself but you definitely weren't not embarrassing. Ugh, bad place to wake up, help 😔
My Psy recommends me RTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) for my OCD/Depression after I have side effects from meds.
Has anyone ever done this / knows about this?
I’ve been trying to look into anxiety group therapy or support groups in the Northern NJ/NYC area, but searching hasn’t come up with anything except for all female support groups. Are there any guys (or girls) on here that would be interested in starting one together? Maybe meet once a week on Zoom after work hours? Maybe we could find a therapist or a psych graduate student looking for extra cash that we could pool some money together for to lead discussions and whatnot? Just spitballing here.
Started a new job last week and cant help but feel I am awkward on calls. I am still very anxious. Is this normal or am I being too hard on myself?
How do you all stop feeling guilty? I have constant guilt which feeds my anxiety. Today was my first day back from little over a week off after a life-changing catastrophe. Partner texts me at 5 asking if discovery went out and it hadn’t, and I stopped myself from volunteering my night to fix this. Before I took off, partner was in settlement talks with OC and I didn’t know today was the discovery deadline as it had been moved from an earlier date.
Anyone have experience/tips with helping someone with PTSD? My dad was attacked by a horse yesterday and my sister witnessed the whole thing. She is a mess now and keeps having flashbacks to the attack. My mom and I are not sure how to best support her 😓. Dad will be okay - he’s in hospital waiting for surgery but in good spirits. We would appreciate any tips/experiences.
I just wanted to thank all you folks that contribute to this bowl. For me personally, its helpful to know that i’m not alone with struggles that we all seem to face. Thanks!
Any tips for dealing with panic attacks (both in and out of work)? I’ve recently started a new job & it feels like I’m being swallowed up by my anxiety/panic disorder.
Trying to work through it with therapy & coping mechanisms, but seems like nothing’s helping.
Is it professional to inform your team/supervior that you have weekly appointments and need to head OOO early on a specific day? I have psy appts. now and already cancelled the previous cont'd below..
How do I get better at handling positive feedback? Was told I did a great job and I immediately think the guy’s lying to my face so he doesn’t have to have an awkward conversation with me.
Was a great performer, severe anxiety, paranoia and seemingly depression (not sure) has affected professional life. Have severe mood swings and want to avoid talking to peers/superiors,contd
I’m so tired.
Being homeless and failing interviews back to back is the worst feeling.. Spent my last dollar on a boot camp that was complete rubbish. I had to beg for that money damn it! Maybe I should’ve done more research but when you’re desperate to get out of situations, you can’t really… think..clearly…. Running from one place to another for WiFi just to be interviewed while juggling anxiety is hell.. Food or no food today I will.. I must interview.
I am (planning) to head into work tomorrow for the first day in 3 weeks. I was sick out of nowhere and it just lingered…at this point I don’t know if it my physical or mental health causing my “illnesses”. I hate going to work, but I try to keep the job because I went to school for so long (money/loans, time spent) and our mortgage and car payments alone warrant two incomes. We aren’t crazy spenders, are on a budget, and have a 1 year old). Any advice for taking a path towards quitting my job?
Does life ever get better because mines been shit for a long long time. I don't even know why I'm bothering anymore getting from one day to the next. There's no end in sight to misery and hopelessness
Worked super hard in the US for 11 years, finally was about to get green card, I got laid off. What has my life become? I can’t feel more like a failure. If I can’t find a job that sponsors work visa for me in 3 months, the past decade would be the proof of my yet another horrible investment. Damn, universe, what are you trying to teach me?! Stop chasing unrealistic goal that’s outside of our control?
Any fish utilizing AA to get/maintain sobriety? Any advice for how you handle team drinks situations? What do you tell people about why you’re not boozing?
Any recommendation for therapists in NY or virtual ones ? It’s my first time trying out! Thanks
