My husband and I have a huge combined family. They are also...well...loud. By loud I mean, laughing, debating, talking, all in good cheer. But sometimes arguments can erupt, and there's really no shortage of entertainment and sometimes drama. We're having a smaller gathering this year and wondering what's the best way to navigate all things COVID and health - we love to be close, hug, etc but I know everyone has different comfort levels and I want to be gracious and appease. What's your expert opinion? #QA
We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.

Best tech strat/planning departments? (or creative agency unicorns that have solid pay and balance?) I can’t take it anymore — horribly underpaid and overworked, sick of the holding company bullshit, mental health is suffering. I don’t want to give up on strategy but I can’t keep waiting around for my company (and the agency world) to change. Where do I go ?

Hi all, I realize this isn’t a medical community but would still appreciate insights. I started Trintillix for anxiety / depression but ultimately insurance wouldn’t cover it. I switched to Wellbutrin and didn’t feel anything. I also now need to get off Wellbutrin because of some other medical things. What successes have people had for anxiety / depression? I have a history of eating disorders so really won’t take anything that might make you gain weight. Realize this is a tall order, but TIA.

Recently made the jump from mostly insurance defense work where my average billable rate was around $225/hr. Now the average billable rate is probably about $450/hr. Would I be able to get away with my insurance defense billing practices. I was averaging about 2800/yr before. Would that be cool in big law?

Anyone else close to birth and only staying because of the maternity benefits? I'm drowning and so overwhelmed and overworked but keep going knowing it's temporary as I can't go back to this lifestyle after leave. The people I work with know I'm pregnant and going out soon but no one seems to truly care. I feel stuck in a suck it up it's almost over situation. Short of burning some PTO I don't feel like I have a lot of options to scale back, especially with our 4 weeks of leave pre birth

Has anyone successfully talked to their neighbors about noise during this time? New neighbors moved in and their footsteps are driving me crazy. Didn’t have this issue with the neighbor before, I don’t think they have any rugs down. I already blare my tv, use white noise etc to try to drown it out, but I still hear it. Talked to the office but nothing has been done and I would talk to them personally, but concerned with covid situation.
