No it’s not that great but I get additional decent benefits through the state and I banked my vacation time. I’m due in a couple months and it’s just feels like too much to try to leave.


that's fair. you can always figure it out later. I'm also pregnant so I'm with you on minimizing the extra drama rn. There's enough happening in life for a complete work revamp too.


Maybe you can find fulfillment outside of work, with delving into a hobby perhaps? Stay strong!


Do you have really amazing maternity leave? Some places give you maternity leave after 30 days or so.

Take into consideration the added emotions you are having - your feelings about your current job may be extra intense due to the hormones your body is going through. I've been suffering similarly with menopause and try to remind myself to compare my behavior to my past norm. Too many times recently I determined it is in fact me, and not them.

When I was pregnant years ago, I remember feeling extra frustrated over everything!

My ex wife (and mother to my son) and I used to have a great friendship until I met this incredibly gorgeous and nice woman (lets call her Mary). She is a pediatrician and obviously is amazing to my son.

Since that, my ex admitted that she is jealous and has been super weird and borderline toxic.

Do you think all these violent and hate filled attacks are because people aren't getting the emotional/mental support they need, whether it's therapy at any age or help they needed but didn't get from a social worker as a child? My coworker is sure this is the case, but I honestly think there's actually something deeper wrong either with how these people are being raised as children, or how the warning signs these people give off are ignored or swept under the rug to save face.
