Hi I feel like I really just need to vent and let out my emotion so I hope you don’t mind if u do so here and maybe receive a little advice along the way? Recently I have been very distant with my emotions and keeping them under control. Last year I think I went through a state of depression (or sadness you could say as I was undiagnosed) for a while as of the fact I had little friends and not much of a social life in school and out school. After 6 or so months I had finally managed to fall out of this awful state (in the summer) and had found a new friend group and everything was going perfectly and I was the happiest I had been in years. However recently going back to school I have discovered my new “friend” group actually hung out without me a lot leaving me uninvited and they talked about me regularly. Finding this out was a very big upset to my life, almost as if they had just made my life and then threw it all back in my face, leaving me almost empty and almost friendless. This happened a few weeks ago now but I fear my life has took a turn for the worst and the old anxious, always chocking back tears, emotionally unstable me is slowly returning and taking over my life, I value relationships in my life a lot but I have been left with only a few friends who really aren’t that close to me or interested in me and are invested in their own lives, apart from one who I spend most of my time with but it just doesn’t feel right. I just feel as if my world has been shattered and I have nothing to look forward to these days, just continuous school and watching my old best friends slowly forget about me. Obviously I don’t want to return to my friendship with them because they have made it very obvious to me how they feel about me but I am now left feeling empty and nobody wants to be my friend because I’m not interesting or fun like others. I was wonder if I should go to the doctors to talk about my poor mental health but I don’t really want to talk about my sadness with my parents because they a lot of the time just think I’m being over dramatic and don’t understand. How could I lead a happy life living with few friends? How can I distract myself from this? Do you have any other advice that can stop this from taking over my whole life on top of my school work? should I see the doctor for a mental health check?
Thanks for reading

I don't know why, but I have been feeling hesitant about publishing a portfolio.
I just feel so scared in posting all of my accomplishments online where anyone can see. I've tried multiple times creating a career portfolio and I always abandon it midway. I also feel like I don't have enough accomplishments I can brag about. Any advice?

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
