My 2019 mantra to help me keep things in perspective is to repeat three words: “It’s just advertising.” If that doesn’t work than I’ll go back to: “It’s just aggghhhhhh”

Let’s start a list of insights that apply to every single disease state and officially retire them. I’ll start.

I want to feel normal.
I am not my disease.
I’ve lost control.
I want to be there for my family.
I want to feel like my old self.
I don’t want to be a burden.
I don’t want to miss out.
I’m a fighter.

Keep going…

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.


Has anyone received an SBA 7a loan recently? My lender is telling me I need to use the funds within 3 months, which sounds crazy and on the SBA website says I can have funds for revolving credit. So I want to switch lenders. Can someone refer me to another SBA lender that you’ve liked that’s not placing crazy restrictions. Thanks!


I’ve worked 2 years at a non profit 501c 3 tech startup. When I started there were 6 employees we now have 22. I am considered a part of leadership and am a people manager in addition to my sales role. I am a high performer and last year got a 10% raise (which I asked for). This year I was offered 5%. I am going to counter but curious what anyone thinks I should ask for. I was thinking 8%.

Has anyone experienced blame shifting? In my romantic relationship we’re in sync 97% of the time but if I’ve constructive criticism, the dynamic flips, so I apologize to deescalate. I can’t ask for changes much. Like “next time you need spreadsheet help, try to plz anticipate it & not need it at 10 at night?” I’m reading that criticism’s perceived as a narcissist injury, oy! Years of therapy give me empathy but I’m discouraged. My partner’s amazing, but doesn’t have the tools. How can I help?

I’m stressed lately and like 90% sure I’m having night terrors, does anyone have experience with this? Toddlers get them but it’s less common in adults. I wake up feeling disoriented and in danger and race to another room! I’ve trouble recognizing my surroundings & I’m stuck in a dream. Apparently they happen at the start of a sleep cycle; the adrenaline feels like a heart attack! How do I relax and decompress?? Now I’m terrified of going to sleep. Help!
