I have the Jarvis from Fully and opted for the extended length option. My husband is 6’4 and uses it all the time and loves it!

I'm 6'2. Bought a kitchen table top with heavy duty adjustable height legs, both from Ikea. This wasn't tall enough, but buying 6 inch stands has me looking at the middle of my screens. May need taller monitors or stands at 6'6 though

I feel terrible. My mum and my husband both told me I am fat and need to lose weight ASAP. They were not trying to insult me, they both really think they have my best in interest. I am a mother of 11 months old twins, am still breastfeeding and currently have 11kg more than before pregnancy. I was always skinny and before pregnancy wore size 8. I feel so bad for hearing that, and feel like a failure on all levels.

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
