Can anyone that has taken disability leave because of stress/anxiety/depression share their story? I came back from the doctor and they strongly advised I take one and I’m looking for some hope.
I am a special education aide in a structured self-contained classroom. Toileting and hygiene puts me at greater risk. I am symptomatic but have used up all my sick days. Is anyone’s admin showing grace in the number of paid sick days or are you docked when your sick days run out? This is why I am inclined to go to school regardless. We don’t have a union.
Hi All, I just had a egg retrieval this morning. All went smooth. But last retrieval round I got very sick day 3-4 days after (constipation, fluid in belly, extreme abdomen discomfort,etc.) I’ve bought some milk of magnesia to help but wanted to check in with you all for tips. Any food recommendations? I hear varying opinions of what’s bests so I’d love to hear what worked directly for you.
If this ain’t sick funk than my brain needs major calibration. https://youtu.be/md9veYbl7wI
Our 5 month old started daycare about 5 weeks ago. We’ve already had to keep her home for 2.5 of those 5 weeks due to catching various illnesses (croup, rsv, brinchiolitis, etc). Both my wife and I have been sick most of that time as well (gotten it from the baby). Wife is thinking we get a full time nanny for the next 4 months to help the baby build antibodies. Cost aside, is this feasible / worthwhile to go thru the effort / finding the right fit, only for 4 months?
I would like to hear opinions on why schools would require masks at school but go any indoor school sporting event and it’s packed with kids and spectators with no masks. Even school dances hardly require them. Then schools wonder why so many are out sick. I cannot find the rational. I am for masks ( sped teacher whose kids cannot wear them correctly).
Why do I feel bad about taking a personal day when I'm sick? Is that normal outside of this profession to feel bad?

Need your help 🐠 I feel like I‘m always sick (flue like symptoms ~2x per month). The doctors either just treat the symptoms or give me referral for a specialist for one or more symptoms, I feel like I‘m getting nowhere with that. Any advice on what tests I can ask for that helped you in the past? Any recommendations for a more complete checkup in Manhattan (ideally covered by most insurances)? TIA!
Most companies offer 2 or 3 weeks vacation for new employees. Is it a big turn-off to hiring managers for a request of 4 weeks? How many of you get separate PTO days for miscellaneous personal stuff or work/life balance? What is everyone getting these days for number of sick days? I think the standard 5 isn’t enough now that everyone has the chance of getting the flu and COVID.
Ugh, I'm so sick of being interrupted! Any tips on how to prevent this? Let's not make this a gender issue. Genuinely want help.

Upon return from Short-term Disability for mental health reasons for 6 weeks, I was put on "of counsel" status, my compensation based solely on hours I bill and get paid. I'm getting no work. Fishy?
I’m so sick of teachers making excuses for not getting vaccinated. I got this lovely reply from a teacher in Washington because I support a mandate. I am almost positive this was the same person who claimed they had a religious exemption which I called BS on. I reported and blocked her ass. I should find another profession? Hell no, I’m in a high need field and rated highly effective.

We are a family with 2 kids under 3 years. Yoe : 13 - 40 lpa Yoe : 10 - 20 lpa. Watched on YouTube about the Netherlands biking culture and how it's a good place for kids. Thinking of staying long term and sending kids to Dutch school. Just beginning to apply via LinkedIn. Both of us plan to work and needed inputs on what combined salary would make sense. Would it be good to accept an opportunity if one us of us gets 60keuro and hope spouse would get an opportunity once we move there?

Do most of the big 4 have a pension still for partners? I thought I heard most got rid of them recently.
Partners - I’ve been a top performer for years, but I feel recently I’ve just lost my self confidence somehow. I’ve become nervous in presentations, started second guessing myself, caring what others think, and even forgetting simple details that used to be easily recalled. Anyone experienced this before? Any guidance to get back on track?
