Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.

I’ve worked in mental health for 10 years now, and make around 76k as a clinical research coordinator. I left research in 2019 to work as a psychotherapist, but came back last year just to recover from Covid burnout.
I’m trying to decide what my next move is. I want to make closer to 100k, but don’t know how. I’m considering either private practice therapy or a hospital therapist job. Any tips in either direction would be awesome.

Question: What are some techniques/courses/best therapists to get over birth trauma?
I had a strong birth trauma from my first birth (15mo ago), full covid pregnancy & delivery with bad attention during both because of Canada closures, lack of doctor and emergency c-section. My husband and I are completely traumatized (BAD after a lot of therapy), but we do want another one and the clock is clicking.
I was in consulting until recently and I stayed here because I love this mom's group. The best!

I used to read about people who died from work related stress/pressure and couldn’t comprehend how someone could push themselves that hard for a career. These days I find myself more and more closer to that line (eg working through Covid even though I was dog shit sick from the first strain, through very high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, etc.) Meanwhile career is taking off very well. I am nervous I will get sucked in further and won’t quit in time.

Hi fishes!

My employer noted that they are working on putting an agreement together for employees who they sponsor green cards for, that essentially says they are responsible for *all legal fees during the process if the employee leaves before their 3 year mark*.

This is not something I signed or was even notified about when I joined.

What are my options? If you’ve experienced something similar, how did you respond to such a situation?
