Does anyone else feel depressed, sick and just totally burned out after this busy season?
Let’s hear some stories of adversity and overcoming challenges. Socioeconomic, race, gender, disability etc. Work or personal. I think we all need some inspiration that we can overcome, no matter what.
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
I’m trying to take leave due to mental health/ burnout. Has anyone been successful in getting approved for Short Term Disability and /or FMLA via a therapist/licensed counselor (LPC) or do they need to be a psychiatrist? Thank you I’m advance 👍
Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help

What do you think?

Bf dumped me citing I didn’t invite him to my family home over the many years we’ve dated. I’ve explained to him why many times - my parents are somewhat hoarder like and my bf is v critical and I wanted to avoid any confrontation in that setting. He’s met my parents a handful of times in outdoor settings but even that’s been limited due to my mothers health issues that prevent her from traveling much. He is very close with my siblings.I get fam matters but this felt like a cop out reason to me
