Sister is mentally ill and born with brain injury. I'm sensing she's on her way back to psych ward, as she's displaying her crazy symptoms again. Not looking forward to this

Sorry, that must be a lot to process. I'd avoid thinking of her symptoms as "crazy"... Even if you never say it out loud, this will color the way you relate to her and empathize with her.

Echoing A1, @OP try to view this like someone born with a heart defect except it’s in the brain. It’ll help you empathize and that will unconsciously show in your behavior around her.

FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴

I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?

Hi All I am a Key Account manager at a company that manufactures and sells PPE. I moved to London a year ago and have built up a great pipeline and grown the company I work for exponentially. I am looking to move into SaaS sales or into the general tech scene in London as there is more room for growth and earning. My question is , how do I go about making the move into software or tech when all jobs require experience in SaaS. Do I have to take a step back in my career back to SDR or AE?
