Could check out Dorchester or East Boston if you’re looking for something a bit less expensive. The W side of Southie is more affordable too but there can be some ruckus by the housing projects. For Dorchester, stick within the polish triangle and stay very far away from Mattapan and Roxbury lines

The 9 bus goes straight from the Broadway T stop to the Pru so you could easily take the red line to broadway and jump on the bus or you could take the red line to downtown crossing and switch to green and get off at copley. Lots of options!

Lots of cheap places in Somerville but I don't think it's a good place to commute to the pru or the airport. East Somerville next to the green line might not be too bad

Is ur partner’s sense of cleanliness and tidiness a deal breaker? My partner maintains his hygiene but everything else around him is in a state of messiness - he would finish a beer and leave it on the desk. Our home office is full of cans, food container, random trash that my partner does not put away. It stresses me out because his habits make me feel that I will always have to be the one to clean after him...he’s the one with the busier job (he’s a principal at a big 3 consulting firm).

I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently.

I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations
