I'm so sorry. I've been dealing with something very similar and currently on disability leave to deal with the stress. I know I need to learn how to let things get to me, to do my job and stay detached otherwise, and learn to say no. Easier said than done but I'm working on that. That could work for you as well?

I’m worried about something similar. Dreading going back. My personal career coach advised to not quit though.

A lot of my friends have been getting new job offers from amazing companies and while I’m extremely happy and excited for them, I can’t help but feel sad & depressed. I’ve been interviewing for months and have gotten rejected from everywhere I’ve applied. I’m trying to stay positive and celebrate with my friends bc I know they’d do the same for me but it’s difficult because I feel left behind and unsuccessful compared to them. It would help if I knew there was a light at the end of this tunnel.

We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.

I’m a S3 making 89k in a MCOL and I’m a CPA. Basically guaranteed a manager promo in a few months, and have a ~30k promo bonus I’d receive at the same time.

Asking for some advice on an offer received… my current company base gives me 112k, 9 holidays, 20 pto days, 6% match on 401k and employee share purchase plan, individual bonus up to 8.5%. The new offer received is as follows: 110k base, 11 holidays, unlimited pto days, 25k in RSUs vested 100% after 4 years, no 401k match, annual performance bonus up to 7.5% with possibility to exceed it, basic medical, dental, vision plan covered by company. Thoughts on if the external offer sounds competitive?

I recently began to feel Covid-19 symptoms and decided to get tested (waiting for results). My husband took the rapid and tested positive. Meet the Teacher is Monday and school starts for my students on Tuesday. If I have to quarantine, I have no idea how this will work. Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.
