How to care less? I left my last position because I wore myself out. I cared too much about the work, was putting in crazy hours, and was usually angry because I felt surrounded by people who didn’t care enough. At a new role now, several months in, and I can see this happening all over again. Covid doesn’t help. Can’t have much of a life outside of work so I throw myself into work. I need help. I want less stress, I want to like my work and colleagues. What do I do?

Anyone here fly in/out of DCA or IAD within the last month or so? Trying to get a feel for which airport may be better with COVID in terms of less people, better sanitation, rule following etc. Also, I’ve heard Delta is the better airline at the moment but where I’m headed I can only take United or AA (for nonstop)- anyone recommend one over the other?
My dad who lives in Asia just announced that he had a medical issue. I’m starting to enter the age where I’m going to take care of him financially. It’s a $2,000 hospital bill which in the US is nothing compared to what it represents there (which he can’t afford). He’s going to be fine! Just wanted to share with this group as many of you can understand what it feels like to support your parents when they’re old, not the other way around. I feel so blessed I can help him. 🙏🏽
Would appreciate any help. I'm alone and need to cook for a sick family. I work ridiculously long hours so I'll have to wake up at 6 to cook. I'm hopeless in the kitchen. Can anyone point me to some quick recipes that don't take too much time? Is getting a crock pot worth it? Thank you in advance.

Life / Career Advice: I applied to medical school since my MCAT score was set to expire, ended up getting into 1 program. I also have an opp to join a well funded/well established Healthtech Startup (6 figure salary w/ equity + benefits) as a BD professional. I enjoy the business side of things and am unsure if I would end up practicing Medicine (medicine is also a long arduous path). At the same time, having an MD holds a lot of clout/authority in HC. Any thoughts on what I should do?
