I don’t see any issues with that. If you need a sick day, you need a sick day.

If you’re sick, you’re sick. Between COVID, cold and flu season, mental health days, it’s not far fetched to need to take days off

Don't think there is any harm. You can really fall sick while working from home. If you are not really sick and still want to take a leave, I think that should be fine as well.

I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked? It would be nice to have an extra income source, and since I work from home, I don’t see the time being an issue.

Does anyone else feel like WFH has made higher ups notice you more? I feel like when we were in the office I was always judged by my looks, how young I was, my ability to make small talk, etc., but not the content or quality of my work. Now that the only thing they have to judge me on is my work, it seems like everyone wants to work for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful but also TERRIFIED to go back in the office and watch all that momentum go down the drain.

Hey Fish, I have a question. The past week I have shortness of breath. Did tests and everything seems to be fine with my lungs and heart. Idk if it has to do with anxiety, doctors said it's a possibility. I always think a lot to myself but I never feel overly stressed about anything. Idk what to do or know what it is. Anyone ever dealt with anxiety? Can you tell me how it feels and if you had to ask for medical help? I just want to feel like my normal self again, I've been crying because of this
