Has anyone tried EMDR to deal with childhood traumatic experiences? I'm not talking about things like physical abuse etc. but due to separation from parents at a young age which was driven by circumstances and decisions parents made. Due to this, I don't feel much connection with my parents. It has impacted my romantic relationships and causes constant anxiety at work because I feel like a helpless child inside, lack confidence and self worth and fear failure. Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
I’ve been in a major struggle lately. The past 4 years I’ve had brain surgery, cousin committed suicide, mother had a stroke, and my grandmother fell and landed on her head last week. After my surgery, I was diagnosed with depression, OCD, PTSD, and severe anxiety. I’m officially epileptic and now limited to what I can do outside. Point is, it has been so hard to focus on work but I really do enjoy my job. I’ve had seizures on and off lately. Any advice?

Has anyone dealt with narcissistic Indian parents and found happiness back? I am in tremendous grief because of issues between my mother and wife and the lack of rationale or empathy is unbelievable.

When you invite your child’s friend to a play date, do you pay for them to participate in the activity ie indoor playground, zoo pass, etc?
This will be weird, but serious question. My three year old girl does this thing where she gets in child’s pose, balls up her blanket between her legs and then appears to be humping it. Will do it especially when she getting tired / close to nap time. But it is weird, like she is rubbing herself there. We plan to mention it to the pediatrician next time we go. Anyone else had a kid do this? Is that super weird or is it just random strange little kid stuff?

I just bought a new Subaru around for about $25k and my parents are very mad. Why? Because the car doesn’t isn’t a luxury brand and doesn’t show status. I’m 25 and earning well but didn’t make sense to spend money on “status” when this Subaru is fun and very safe (especially for winters conditions). I don’t regret my choice but man, it sucks to see my parents wanting me to spend extra money for shallow reasons.

Can I apply to McKinsey & Company again/now if I got to but failed the the final round interviews last April (04/2021)? Seems like mckinsey has a tracking system preventing people from applying again within 2 years. Is it strictly enforced/can I get past it with an internal referral/is there a crazy hiring wave going on at mckinsey rn so they don’t care that I’d applied last year? Currently on a BCG knowledge team and trying to internal transfer, but want to apply also at mckinsey to be safe.
