unpopular opinion… but i feel like my bf is too passive, to the point he doesn’t seem to care as much. Whenever I get sick all he says is “oh no feel better!” And doesn’t text until I say I’m feeling better. I’ve explained to him that I like to feel taken care of in cases where I’m sick and I reciprocate when he is. He says he’s giving me space so I explained that I would wish he can offer help or ask questions like so. But he still reverts to the same response. How should I process this?
I’ve never been unintelligent, but does anyone else feel manipulated to think so by leadership? It almost feels like a sick game how leadership talks down to AEs...

Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?

Does anyone else have a problem with their adhd meds making them want to throw up sometimes? Like particularly if I’m already really nervous? I never got sick when I was nervous before I started meds but sometimes it’s bad. It usually passes but it’s a battle until it kicks in.
I think schools should send letters (and a PSA) home telling parents NOT to send sick kids to school!!!!!
Really starting to wonder why people in PA are so underpaid? Hearing my friends, who work in other other industries, talk about their higher salaries almost makes me sick. They work 9-5, have less of a workload, and WAY more of a work/life balance. Not here to complain, just think this is a major issue in our industry and something to consider since turnover is supposedly at an all time high.

Seeking financial/relationship advice: Long term girlfriend is in medical school while I’m a well-paid consultant.

I work at a boutique that is not very well known, I went on sick leave for personal reasons, which they have been very supportive of. And while on it I received an opportunity to back to a big name I worked for before moving to the boutique. I've only been here for about 7 months. Would it look bad if I agreed to take the offer to boomerang? I'm very confused, everyone I know is saying I shouldn't do it.

I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!
