Has anyone ever taken a short term leave of absence to deal with mental health issues relating to being overloaded and overwhelmed with work?

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?

I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
My Havanese puppy seems to accidentally puke / have loose stools at least once a week. No problems prior to those one of those incidents and she seems active and normal right after that as well. We are super strict about her food portions, meal schedules and try to ensure she doesn’t eat crap on her walks. What am I missing here? Is this normal behaviour amongst puppies? Any tips to improve her digestive health. Thank you! 🙏🏻

Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
Has anyone worked for Intuit as a CPA for TurboTax? Is that even allowed if you are working at the big 4? I transitioned out of a tax role to a consultant role and am thinking about doing it.
When the interviewer says at the end of an interview “it’s exciting to think you could be a part of our team”, is that a good sign? I haven’t had that many interviews so not sure if it’s common or not!
Happy to have just received my promotion to senior manager after a very challenging year, backed by an even more challenging year prior. I've got my own beliefs what a senior manager does, or should do. I'm keen to hear transition challenges others have gone through when becoming a senior manager.
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
For those who did get promoted, esp. from Senior to Manager, how did you feel about your chances throughout the promotion year? Any signs at all or you are just in the dark until they tell you?
How to feel more comfortable in my role? I’m transferred to FDD as an S1 as a tax associate (external) about 4 months ago, and I still feel kind of unsure in what I’m doing. I feel like the tasks that would help be understand things better are getting sent to the India teams but also feel like there is little guidance on other items from my teams (guess they expect me to already know)? Any thoughts/advice is appreciated!
US Midwest Audit M1 salary?
I had a great interview for a new job and an initial offer, but HR told me that there's no room for negotiation. I'm a woman, and the HR rep is an older gentleman that I think doesn't respect my experience/position. I'm not sure if I should take it or push back. I don't want to be the person who doesn't reach for what I deserve, and I don't know whether to believe him.

How do I deal with a Manager who does not have the skill set or experience to lead the work? Like I see him struggling in front of the client in answering basic questions. I am a SC so what will you guys recommend in this situation?
Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
