Omg seriously though. I just want to be unassigned for one week. That's it. I know people who get a few weeks here and there, and people who get a month off on occasion. I just want one week. Just one.

Seriously! One day would be great too! I'm with you, I'm on one client year round. I never see anything else, I never get time off unless I request it/holidays. And sometimes I'm just sick of it. One of my coworkers just had a month of being unassigned and was able to knock out FAR. And then had the audacity to tell me it's not too bad, I can pass in a month too while studying+working full time. Like sure I possibly can, but it's definitely easier when you're studying full time.

And I miss those stuff too. Also doing trainings at home isn't the same when you don't get the free food lol.

How is everyone staying motivated at work while going through fertility treatments? On days when I have appts or get my period, all I want to do is google and read forums about it.

I’ve told my manager about what I’m going through and she is supportive, but feeling guilty when I hear about how busy everyone around me is and I just can’t find the motivation.
