Younger brother is getting a JD/MBA at an ivy, received two offers: (1) associate attorney role at a T5 law firm (serving tech clients - IP Law) and (2) Product Manager at a FAANG (he has a BS in Computer Science, also from the same ivy). He asked me for guidance in deciding which career to pursue. The comp at the law firm is $45K more. I flip flop every day in my advice to him. Need help from the bowl in deciding between the two and your rationale. T.I.A.
Has anyone here gotten out of an abusive relationship? I got out of one a while ago (we were together a long time) and feel like I’ve moved on for the most part.

Needing advice on how to emotionally handle this.

I wish you could admit that you had suicidal thoughts to people without them trying to shove you in an institution. Sometimes you just need to talk about the thoughts to help them pass.
I get so stressed I get headaches every work day. I fixate on things that have nothing to do with me. I have presenting anxiety that shows physically. I’m in therapy but idk what’s going on w me.
Having one of those days where you start spinning and feel like you’re underwater. Do you ever have thoughts like, “This will never get better…what am I even doing…is this my life forever…if only I could just save up enough to quit for a bit…maybe I should just abandon everything…I bet all my friends are moving on...” I’m aware this is severe, and I’ve been trying to keep a positive mindset as much as possible, but in this industry sometimes you just crumble and it all becomes heavy. Adulting 👎
I recovered from an e.d. 10 years ago, and yet a coworker merely GLANCING at my meal last week is still bothering me.
Sometimes wish I could circumvent the stress and go back to skipping meals...
Panic attack (right before a Video conference call) this morning... momentarily thought of faking a poor internet connection. Made it through ok, but it left me feeling pretty weak. #anxietystruggles
I’ve become negative about my life and can only think how I’ve been wronged, how I’m stuck, and frustrations w/ various circumstances in my life. They all feel connected in a cycle I can’t escape bc it’s all cause and effect ending up back where it started. I can’t find where to break the toxic cycle of negative in my life or how to make those circumstances better. I feel my life has backed me into a corner. I’m aware I’m playing victim and not taking charge of my life. Advice on breaking free?
I’m going for my annual checkup this week and I wanted to talk to / ask my doctor about putting me on anxiety meds but idk how to approach the subject since I see him once a year...
Nothing like stress induced anxiety and insomnia to make for a wonderful day of feeling exhausted and nauseous. I’m beginning to hate this industry
My anxiety is driving a wedge in all of my relationships, mainly my romantic one. I’m so on edge all the time and get so upset over everything. I think my boyfriend may break up with me after this last fight and I just feel awful. Definitely ready to start medication. Am I alone?
Took a much needed mental health day after hitting a wall at a toxic job this week. Immediately get an email from HR asking me to meet on Monday. 😅
Any creatives/writers here regularly take ADD medicine? Wondering how it affects your workflow and process.
Is it just me? Or is this field really good at making you feel like shit when you’re trying you’re hardest?
I’m starting to feel like I don’t belong here.
Hey 💊🐟 with AD/HD. I remember reading a few of you talking about a completely different class of drug you take, specifically for focus that’s not adderall or ritalin. Folks who took it said it didn’t make them jittery. Sadly I totally forgot to note the name of the drug and my doc visit is tomorrow. Anyone know what I’m talking about? As usual I sure don’t know what I’m talking about.
Anyone else suffer from PMDD? Just got diagnosed and not sure what to make of it. Anything that's helped?
How hard is this for you? For me working in advertising is incredibly hard. I’ve been an Art Director for long time and despite of experience, my job has never become any easier. Every time I tackle an important project, I deal with a lot of stress feeling that I won’t be able to deliver to the level that is needed. People tell me that I’m talented, but honestly the hours I spend to make things look right, are insane. I’m tired. Is it normal to feel this emotional drain? Is this what it takes?
Suffered anxiety attacks this week from consistent mismanagement, being passed up for promotions when my male counterparts are being promoted, and complete lack of respect. Should I quit? Hiatus?Help!
Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)

I had some serious health issues and i just came back to work after 2 months of sick leave and i’m highly insecure about my place in my team. Lot of things have changed, they changed my scope of work, and want me to slow down because of my health. Before this incident i was in talks for a promotion and i just feel these health problems have stopped my progression. Any tips on how to navigate that?
