Anyone else feeling almost more stressed out now that the vaccine is here? Made it this far by being careful... would be so frustrating to get sick with the new variant just as I’m waiting my turn for the the vaccine. Definitely preoccupying my thoughts.
My doctor wants me to take a medical LOA. Thinks I’m too stressed at work/have so much anxiety about work that it’s having physical effects (heart palpitations/chest pains/panic disorder). I know I should take the time, but feel bad letting people down while my firm is so busy. What’s wrong with me?
Observation: The “vaccinations are a personal medical choice so get off my back” crowd uses fundamentally the same argument as the pro-choice crowd.

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
