Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.

Lean on each other. He's probably feeling a similar way and I think he'd appreciate that you care so much. Think of it less as a burden and more of a supporting someoje you love. He'd do the same for you I'm sure.

Yeah, I’m supporting 3 kids and my wife in a HCOL area, the suffocation is real. I have no advice, just solidarity.

The suffocation is definitely real. My husband and I are both employed, but we were forced into doing long distance in May. We’re currently paying double rent which is stressful at baseline, especially in a shaky economy. The loneliness & the constant fear that I’m going to lose my job makes everything just exhausting. No real advice - but you’re not alone, OP!

Wife and I both lean right, her more than I. Both of us were skeptical of getting the Covid Vaccine. My job required it so I got it end of October.

She’s since recovered and I’m on day 8 of being positive. I’m overweight and asymptomatic. Seeing her fight to breathe just sitting up…

I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?

In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?
