I just got diagnosed with ADHD at 30. After years of being the weird one, problem child and dealing with my own mental and sensory overload issues I’m so relieved to have a diagnose I could cry. I am now getting recommendations to avoid medication and try therapy. Can anyone speak to that approach? I kind of feel like I’m getting that recommendation because people don’t believe ADHD is a real issue.

Hi there! Anyone tried to wean a baby off thumb sucking before 1 y.o.? She only does it in her crib and I would have no problem with it if she didn't have constant eczema on her hands from sucking. I give her pacis instead but she spits them out quickly and doesn't bother looking for them bc her thumb is right there. Any advice?

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. My utilization is tanking (not because I’m blowing off work, but because I need to find and take on new work) but can’t get the energy to). 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.

I am a 30 year old single woman and right now I am setting up my retirement account at my new job and of course they offer a 401k and will match 100% of my contribution up to 3% of my annual salary. They also offer a Roth 401k. I’m not sure yet if I will retire early but I may have the opportunity to do so if things go according to planned. What would you say is the wisest thing for me to do for my financial future invest in both my traditional and Roth 401k or chose one and why?

Looking to pivot from Meta asap. Between the culture and the industry, I’m nervous about the state of the company.

Anyone feeling just as nervous about tech as me? What are you all thinking as a next move? I’m new to tech and don’t have much intel on companies with the best culture & comp. Please help

Ladies with kids - how do you get back into killer shape afterwards? I’ve seen some women who are so ripped a year later, but I’m just wondering how you motivate yourselves and start out?
I am 37, no kids & this year I found out my ovaries are very cystic but I am not diagnosed with PCOS due to my hormones being in normal range. To manage pain and abnormal bleeding, she put me back on birth control pills. One month in and I can tell how much my tolerance level is much shorter. I don’t like feeling like this. Any suggestions to work with my obgyn to help either switch to another pill or look for a non-hormonal solution?
Anyone else feel like they don’t have much to talk about with their s/o these days? I’m ~3 yrs into relationship (we do not live together). Not sure if I should attribute it to our situation - already knowing lots about each other, covid making our lives more routine, & our daily texting already covering most updates real-time - or if this indicates a dying relationship/lack of compatibility. Would love to hear your situations/tips!! Just want to things to be more exciting again

First week in a calorie deficit and Omg it’s hard. I’m 5’2”, 160 and my goal is 145 (but really 130, where I was 2 years ago). I’ve just been eating whatever and it was taking a toll on my physical and mental health.

I still woke up at 4 am, caught a 6 am flight, puked on the plane, and powered through the day. Super sucked- wish I could have been working from home!
Same!! Power through Mama, you can do it! 💪🏻👏🏻
Congratulations on your pregnancy! There was no way I could maintain 8 hours and I communicated that up front. I barely made it to work on time and was home and asleep by 5pm every single day for the first trimester. 2nd trimester I had a surge of energy and made up whatever hours I could, then slowed to normal 8 hours after 30 weeks. I always communicated with leadership, reflected in my timesheet and flexed when I could. My firm has a maternity policy where our annual reviews during years of maternity leave are waived and automatically reflected by the previous year’s rating. I did take a hit in career profession for that year but I wouldn’t do a thing over. Your body, your baby comes first. I’d recommend having that open and honest conversation right up front to see what your options are. You shouldn’t have to feel like you have to power through. You’re a now a mother first.
Omg. THE WORST! I hate the smell of that soap now. like thank god I was in quarantine otherwise idkkk how I would have showered and used ice packs all over my body. It was literally the worst. I got to a bad spot mentally bc of the lack of sleep and itchy ness it was so badddd.
