Agree or disagree - media peeps. Knowing all the ins and outs and nuances of Facebook ads is a pretty hard technical skill? I am sick of people thinking it’s so easy.

So I live in a state that offers paid family medical leave and my company makes me manage applications with the state. I am supposed to get part of my paycheck from the state and part of it from short term disability (managed by Sedgwick who are THE WORST.) I received no guidance from HR on the type of leave I needed to apply for with the state so followed the instructions I was given by the state. Apparently I was supposed to file for a different type of leave and now no one is paying me…
I am a special education aide in a structured self-contained classroom. Toileting and hygiene puts me at greater risk. I am symptomatic but have used up all my sick days. Is anyone’s admin showing grace in the number of paid sick days or are you docked when your sick days run out? This is why I am inclined to go to school regardless. We don’t have a union.
I'm done with this app. People are talking about that parents don't have the right to know if their kid wants to be called by a different pronoun and keeping things from parents. Makes me sick. I told them they're all fucked in the head. So I'll be booted soon. Good knowing some of you. Peace.
Anyone know of a good IMO/FMO with a good range of disability carriers? Most I see is two, tops!

Question about the disability section on job applications. I go back and forth on whether to put “yes” even though the condition I have (Crohn’s) is specifically called out. I don’t see myself as having a disability and don’t think I’ll need accommodations. Is there any downside to answering yes?

Hi All, I just had a egg retrieval this morning. All went smooth. But last retrieval round I got very sick day 3-4 days after (constipation, fluid in belly, extreme abdomen discomfort,etc.) I’ve bought some milk of magnesia to help but wanted to check in with you all for tips. Any food recommendations? I hear varying opinions of what’s bests so I’d love to hear what worked directly for you.
Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
Can anyone that has taken disability leave because of stress/anxiety/depression share their story? I came back from the doctor and they strongly advised I take one and I’m looking for some hope.
This is so unrelated but can someone share a reliable contact for condo renovation? Just small stuff around washroom / kitchen etc.
Anyone in this bowl work in NY but live in CT? And if so, can you explain if the difference between living and working in two different states has impacted you tax wise? Considering a move from NY to CT because of cost of rent differences. Thanks in advance!
How do I go about negotiating lower rent for re-signing my lease? Midtown lux east 2 bed we are paying $4400. Lately I’m seeing prices around 3500 for similar buildings in the area.
I'm looking at my next car- particularly a BMW 4 series, X5, 6 series (if I feel like spending $$ over a 4), or a Lexus IS or GS. Has anyone owned these recently? Really looking for reliability/looks
Meetings before 10am are______.
Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.

I recently completed my doctorate in Education Leadership. I’m ready to be out of the classroom, but I still want to be hands on w students. What options do I have? Where do I go from here? It’s such a shame teachers have to leave the classroom to be paid what they deserve.

I'm curious to know if anyone has any experience, good or bad, with private line ring down providers such as IPC, BTPW, etc. What has your service experience been with them as far as being and end user?
I hope someone at BCW is monitoring this bowl. There are some pretty clear issues going on at the agency, particularly around burnout and compensation. Forget the ‘above the line’ mantra and fix the issues right in front of you.
So Election Day is going to go smoothly, right?
