Am I overthinking possible sensory/anxiety disorder ?
February 4,2020 at 6:44PM UTC
Trying to keep it short. I am a first time mom. 2yr old daughter. Born premature with severely underdeveloped lungs. Asthma,sleep apnea, lots of food allergies bad GERD . Lots of hospitalizations. Pulmonary, Gastroenterologist, ENT, Neurologist. All of her developmental milestones met and exceeded. She speaks in complete sentences, spells her name, dresses herself, potty trained, etc. HOWEVER she cannot tolerate social interaction with friends, family, her father, other children and adults. As much time as she has spent at doctor's and hospitals she loses it Everytime. Because of her medical issues her father and I agreed that I would stay home with her until she became well enough for daycare and I could pick up with my career. So she has not spent a lot of time with children. I don't have any family here so all of her caregiving has been me. Her father refused to help since I am not working. He also didn't have the patience for all of the stress with her medical stuff, so he never bonded with her. We are no longer together because his expression of frustration became abusive. She is stronger with struggles that I believe would allow a partial daycare situation, so that I can work. She literally gets so worked up that she vomits, urinates, goes into an asthma attack when I try to get her to interact with anyone. Her pediatrician says it is normal. I just can't wrap my head around it being normal and I want to help her. Any thoughts? I don't know if I am asking the right questions and perhaps that is why I can't seem to get anywhere.

I am really struggling with getting an interview in this job market.
Feeling very defeated. I joined a company in May, then in July they had a big layoff and my role was impacted. They are kindly keeping me on until December, but I had no idea the job market would be this tough. I have applied for hundreds of jobs at this point and so far received 2 interviews. It is really weighing on me, and I am feeling overwhelmed as the clock is ticking down to my last day at this job.

I recently asked my director if I could partake in my company’s health and wellness program.
Our policy states that all employees are encouraged to use it. It allows employees to spend upto 3 hours a week on exercise during work hours. The policy is lenient so nothing more is restricted except that we can’t extend our exercise over 1 hour per exercise event during the work week, and we must send an email to our director explaining our interest to partake.
My director encouraged me to participate in the program. I then asked my project manager who has the same director. He told me that since I already participate in a alternative work schedule (off one day every two weeks, I work 40 hrs/wk), and I work from home 95% of the time, he doesn’t want me to participate. He said that the policy was written pre-covid when employees had to go in to the office. I told him that I don’t plan to take advantage of the policy every week, or even use the max 3 hours every week. He still didn’t like it.
I was recently given an individual award for my work and I take very little vacation time. I am not a slacker. He is a project manager that feels that all my time is his time. I sit so much at work that my back hurts. I need to move around.
My project manager has changed the narrative of the policy to fit his personal feelings on the matter. It’s a good cop/bad cop situation between my director and my manager. Managers sometimes do not stand behind policy when it doesn’t benefit them. What is the best way to handle this?

Should they be asking for my birthdate and year?
Received an error email from Onramp.io which sparked my memory that I do have a profile on the website. Reviewed profile and found that they had my birthdate and year in the profile which I probably filled out and I have not heard from them regarding job opportunities or training for over 2 years.

Anyone been through company closing?
I've been working for a small company as a developer for about 3.5 years. We've run out of work/contracts and the owners have decided they want to retire so they are closing the company down. They let us know about 2 months ago and the closure is only a little over a month away. I've been applying all over the place with hardly any nibbles. I'm terrified that when it's all said and done I won't have anything new and therefore no income. I also don't know how to deal with the question about why I'm leaving my current position. Anyone ever been through this before? How did you handle it?
