I haven’t heard of this yet but definitely agree that sometimes the media seems to make things out to be worse than they are. Try and stay away from it, wash your hands, don’t share drinks and food - and hopefully that keeps you safe from most everything

Thank you, I hope you too

Trying not to put much concern into it, and remembering that sometimes the media makes things seem worse than they are to get viewers.

Agree!

Are you talking about the emerging respitory illness? Seems like a 'virus' is the wrong way to term it because there is no novel pathogen involved in the transmission of the disease.

What virus?

I'm choosing to bury my head in the sand on this one. I don't need anything else to worry about..

So I have completely lost interest in my area of practice mainly because I haven’t been exposed to many matters (our team is really slow) and I am the most junior in the team. So billable work is never constant. I feel like this has impacted my interest and stagnated my growth. I am thinking of moving into a different area of practice that I’m interested in. Has anyone ever done this? I’m actually depressed and I really hate being given work now. I have ADHD. Please advise

My partner and I do not have aligned work schedules and I’ve been noticing the increasing amount of strain it’s been putting on our relationship. The lack of opportunity to connect with one another has been leading to us both feeling isolated, disconnected, and more prone to having disagreements. More importantly our mental health is starting to be impacted by this as we both don’t have much time or energy outside of work to spend time with our social circles/family. Continued in comments

Hey! I’m new here and would like some input. I’ve been working in a new position for almost 5 months. In that time I’ve witnessed some unethical and lots of unprofessional behavior. I’ve been yelled at and berated by my coworker 3 separate times because of minor errors. I’m ready to quit. There are so many major issues in this company that I don’t know if I want to subject my mental health to this degree of toxicity. I just don’t know how to move forward from here.
