Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️
I am still haunted by the amount of patients that I've seen die alone. COVID is only making it worse.
Pregnant and covid positive. Fever has broken but I'm now coughing up a very little blood with phlegm. Anyone go through something similar? Waiting for my ob to call me and let me know if I need to head to ER or wait this out.
I feel so odd asking. Did anyone decide to not vaccinate a healthy two year old? I am struggling giving it to him for some reason. And I believe in vaccines…
I gained 50 pounds from Covid/baby, and don’t know how to dress for my new body type. What color would be appropriate to wear to a very high-end black-tie wedding in Florida this fall?
Older workers and COVID unemployment... bogus firings and more. IBM is called out specifically here. The EEOC found that IBM engaged in “systematic” discrimination against older workers and there’s an open class action lawsuit. The stories in this video are appalling. If you are young, pay attention. You may be older one day - if you’re lucky. This can eventually come around to you. https://youtu.be/sjr27_K8SWc

Saw that some countries are going to open up for tourism soon for Americans who are 1) vaccinated or 2) proof that they recovered from the virus. As someone who recovered from covid it doesn’t seem -
I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.
All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.
How should I approach her in the upcoming year?
Best apps, platforms or overall ideas you think will help boost employee growth / morale in your personal experience in this virtual covid world. For example, team building, employee interpersonal skills etc. Something innovative and different outside of zoom type meetings.

When covid first hit, I was delighted to be working from home. My hours even improved. Now, because of some triggering events, I’m dealing with horrible panic attacks on the daily. I’m dissociating and can’t focus long enough to get work done. I JUST hit a year at this firm and am going on a one month stress leave. Worried I might not kick this mental state in that time. Any advice as to what I can do while on leave so I can come back focused and ready to work?

I am dating an African American woman. Together 3+ yrs, in general things are good. Would like to take our relationship to next level but I worry cultural difference may be an issue long term. By cultural difference I mean things like — tendency to divorce (I think the Nigerian / African culture has more marital patience), first world expectations in life (my gf has never left USA before and I want to live in Nigeria, with all its 3rd world problems, at some point), etc Anyone faced this before?

Stopped zolpidem 5 after 3 weeks on it and I just can’t sleep...I’m in India where it’s ~2.30 am.
I had really messed up sleep for over a year which is why my doc put me on it in the first place ... but if I can’t sleep without it, what AM I going to do?
I’m going to join Deloitte Digital as a Specialist Senior. I never worked in a travel required job before so very nervous about how this job would be and how the roles and responsibilities are? Help!
When you are all saying you see therapists, what specialization are you doing? DBT? CBT?
Has anyone dealt with feelings like boss is talking behind your back to others and trying to make you quit or looking to fire you? I can’t quite shake this feeling and I don’t want to just ask. What should I do. I heard someone say I heard a lot about you and laughed but my interactions with my boss don’t match my suspicion. I don’t know what I should do. Any advice is greatly appreciated
I am afraid of taking on a consulting role despite of being interested in the work because I consistently find myself struggling to get out of bed or having the courage to do work.
This is a whole new level of crazy
What “self help” books are you guys reading? I just read Untamed by Glennon Doyle and wow, I want to start from the beginning again, but feel like I should read something else. Would love any suggestions.
Having super anxiety right now. Really want to leave consulting but afraid I won’t be able to find anything with a comparable salary and better work/life — my clients seem to be running just as fast hard. I do like parts of my job, particularly my colleagues. But we are so understaffed it’s insane.
Wife is depressed. I convinced her to go to a therapist for the past few months; after the first appointment the therapist highly suggested meds, but my wife refuses to try them.
I just signed a job offer (after receiving 2 great offers) and am beginning to think I made the wrong decision. Has anyone ever experienced this?
My existential dread makes me want to die
Has anyone dealt with being laid off early in your career? / have general uncertainty about your career path? Things aren’t going so well at my firm and it’s really impacting my mental health
I’m having the hardest time being happy for my friends. I’m grateful for everything that I have but I can’t help but feel a sting when friends get into new relationships, find new jobs, etc. Those are things I’m working towards, and want so badly! I just haven’t made as much progress as I’d like- things eventually balance out right? I’m trying to remind myself it won’t feel like this forever
Feel like everyone around me is winning at life whereas I'm just always feeling like a loser who isn't happy with much.
Considered killing myself last night and it was a scary thought but also felt like it would give me the relief I need from constantly feeling depressed.
Is it worth building relationships with people? It feels so empty. I used to care very deeply about my relationships but now I’m starting to think, I just want to be alone. I don’t mind the casual idle chat with strangers but I don’t want to form relationships with them. I feel like I’m in a video game or a simulation and other people aren’t real.
Anyone ever changed therapists after a year or two with the same one? How did you know it was time for a switch? It feels like I haven’t made any progress in the last few months… (but maybe it’s just the pandemic/virtual sessions?)
I am feeling the same way. Had a full mental breakdown end of last year, and now that I’m back at work I am feeling unmotivated and my body feels like it’s in fight or flight mode given work pushed me to the extent that I had a breakdown. I know I’m not really offering any help but just wanted to let you know that you’re not alone, if it’s any consolation.
I’ve experienced this. For me, it feels like going for a run. You get an initial energy budget until you’ve gotta take a break, you walk for a bit until you feel recovered, but when you start running again you just won’t be able to go the same pace or for as long. It took an extended break from work for me to figure out what. I actually want to do and what changes I need in my life. It took a lot of therapy, too. The best thing you can do for yourself is to take a break from your current routine, take a step back, and get some help. Sending happy thoughts!
so what changes did u make and what did u end up doing? and how long a break did u take?
I don’t know that not wanting to eat or go places is burnout. That sounds more like a deep depression to me, but I would see your doc or therapist
