I had a client once have BRAIN SURGERY and he was back on our calls within a week or so with a giant Frankenstein-style gash and stitches in his forehead.

In my former company, one of our consultants was being treated in the hospital for sickle cell and she was taking calls from her hospital bed. I could hear the "beep beep beep" of the monitors in the background. I ended up leaving that company, that's not my kind of culture ...

My ADHD has been a massive barrier for me in my career. I can’t stay at a job for more than 1.5 years.

My ADHD keeps me from being a consistently great performer. When I manage my ADHD, I am amazing. And when I fail to manage it, I fall short. And everyone then wonders why I can’t do my basic job responsibilities.
It’s frustrating. I am V qualified, talented and capable, but this thing is killing me. Everyone I know is getting ahead and I’m constantly struggling even though I’m ambitious.

Has anyone been advised to get genetic counseling for breast/ovarian cancer during their initial fertility meeting? Specialist seems to be pushing the tests based on background. Has anyone actually gone through the process? My understanding is there could be some implications down the line on life insurance. I understand early detection is important. I prefer not being surprised down the line with insurance and wondering if anyone has any experience with this?
