I may be being a pain, told my MIL, we are not traveling, and I can’t expose my daughter, and parents in india, even if there is a 0.001% chance. Just venting here.

Feels like even the relatives/elders are not saying anything, and are all fine with it. They are planning events as one would pre-COVID. I just don’t get it.

February is not that far. It broke out in Mar, and now we are in Oct already. And, Vaccines is still a distant dream.

You’re doing the right thing. The infection rate is scary high in india, don’t put yourself or your parents in harms way.

It’s hard to do the right thing in this situation ... because of family obligations ... I just came to say that you are doing the right thing and you are very strong to be able to stand your ground!

Been severely struggling with depression and anxiety lately. Obviously this job is one big reason why. I opened up to the partner a few months back about it when I started missing random days when I couldn’t get out of bed. Maybe 2/3 days over the last 4 months total. This week he sat me down and told me he is worried about my mental health causing me to be a “liability” to the firm. I can’t stop thinking about this and don’t know how to turn it around.
