This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
My confidence is very low today. I have a few difficult clients who have been disrupting meetings by trying to push current state and I’m trying to come in with different angles because I need to change quite a bit. One of the males who talks at me sent an email asking if I would like overview lessons of how this client works and that just made me feel like shit. I’m the only female on the team and when I ask my SM for help he says “this is your job” and I just need some uplifting. 😑

Curious to know, have you dated or currently with someone with mental health issues? My SO suffers from it and I don’t know how to help him. He takes different medications for it which causes his mood to vary from day to day. The medications combined with his drinking and getting high, I worry about his overall health. Sometimes he just makes me feel like shitty person. I’m not trying to be selfish, but it does affect me. How do I handle this? Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it all.

Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...

Besides also having the skills, of course. Trying to plan the next steps in my career Thanks a lot!
