Anybody have a partner struggling with mental health issues? How do you manage? My wife has been diagnosed with mental health issues in the past, before I knew her. In the years that’s I’ve known her, 5+, they haven’t been significant up until more recently. I’m doing my best to support her, but sometimes I become a punching bag and it can be really hard to keep my cool. I’m in therapy, and she has also agreed to start therapy after having had some bad experiences with therapists in the past.

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
For people here making less than 100K who max out their 401K / HSA, can I have a conversation with you about your taxes paid ? Is it significantly less or is your take home significantly less ? Trying to assess the financial impact to my take home if I max out my 401K. Ty!

I’m looking if a certain dentist accepts my dental via EY’s Better You “Find a network provider”. If the dentist doesn’t show up, that that mean the dentist doesn’t take insurance or that insurance doesn’t work with that dentist? Meaning if I wanted to ask if my dental insurance would be accepted, would I first ask the dentist in question or get on a call with my insurance provider?
