Leaving a secure public sector job of 17 years to work with startups! Biggest pro/cons of working with startups… go!

Cons: Growing pains, revenue issues early on/funding can be stressful. Pros: you can watch and contribute to the growth of a new company, mingle with higher-ups when you might otherwise not get a chance, awesome learning experience. I don't regret it one bit.

Endometriosis question - had an endometrial ablation. They removed endometriomas from my uterus but there’s also some on my sacrum/pelvic cavity that she couldn’t get. We are looking into another surgeon that specializes in nueropevology so another surgery is possible. But we are looking into Orlissa and Lupron to stop the growth. I’m hesitant about both medications because I have major depression. Does anyone take these? And what is your experience? I take Prozac and I have the Mirena IUD.
