Hello my mother is in Delhi and has Covid. Her fever hovers around between101 and 103. It’s the 7th day now (until 3 days ago, the fever was actually around 99-101). She has been on Paracetamol 650. Someone recommended MEFTAL 500. Does anyone here have family members who was put on this medication? Or any other alternate suggestions on how we can reduce the fever temperature? 🙏🏾
Hi ladies, I'm in my mid 40s and I think I'm entering peri. I currently have a Mirena but I should replace it again soon, but one more will put me into my 50s(!!) and I was wondering if anyone here knows that they're in peri or menopause without having periods. Is there blood work or something to check? I definitely do not want to have another child accidentally. I've got 5 more years until my youngest is in college and don't want to start over again.
Best place to get mithai for a very pregnant women and her cravings in NJ? My bestie is craving Indian sweets in her third trimester, they recently moved to NJ so have little info on best places. Preferably sweet treats which aren’t over the top sweet. Her husband got something from Indian grocery store and that did not do the trick. I know this is probably a silly question, but she is driving pretty much everyone around her insane and I am worried about my future nephew’s wellbeing.
Hi, Not pregnant yet but a big time planner. When do you think would be the optimal time to tell my manager about a pregnancy? I’m currently way behind on my targets and my company is undergoing a restructuring. I’m of two minds about it. On one hand, a known pregnancy might “protect” me from being let go but on the other hand, telling them sooner could give them more time to figure out how to let me go ahead of mat leave. Love to get some thoughts on this! Thanks

👋🏻 New mom here. I’m seeing a lot of comments about parents opting for “no sleepover” rules. Is this because of Covid, or is this a new thing? I went to sleepovers all the time as a kid and just wondering what reasons beyond a case-by-case basis would be to have this rule? Not judging, just genuinely curious.

My dad has a problem with alcohol. When he stops drinking for a day he clearly exhibits all the signs for alcohol withdraw. Shaky hands, sweating insomnia. I’m so tired of seeing him fall. My mom has passed away (they were long divorced) so I really don’t have anyone to turn to. How can I be supportive without being an enabler? He has lost the last three jobs and is currently jobless and will must likely need my financial help soon.
As a side-hustle I'm the Communications Director of a campaign for Congress with our primary tomorrow. This morning our candidate (who is challenging a 30-year incumbent in one of the largest US cities) woke up to find somebody threw a brick through her windshield. She's a little shaken, but we're pressing forward. In brighter news, polls have us within two points of the incumbent with 28% still undecided and the Mayor voted for us.

My fiancé and I were thinking of taking a trip to Michigan in mid September before she gets busy with harvest season (she works in the ag industry). Does anyone have recommendations for areas to check out. Not super interested in getting in the water but would like to have a view of pretty blue or clear water. Mainly just trying to relax and destress before piling on stress and work. Wineries, breweries, and distilleries nearby is a plus.

Is it common in the industry for licensed insurance agents to not get any commissions on a referral in which you personally write the policy? Ex: If a current client refers a prospect to our team, I would not receive commission. Additionally, if I write a policy for friends/family I would get a small incentive but it’s a fraction of the commission producers make.
Management is considering changing this going forward. However, I’m not sure how I should react if they keep things how they are now.

I know everyone is different, how long did it take you to fall pregnant with your first?
