2023.02.03 05:52 BetterDays2023 High number of eggs, possibly low quality?

Please remove if not allowed. My post may be a bit longer and I apologize, but I am just very depressed.
I’m not at a point of doing IVF, but I did egg freezing at CNY fertility. I am 34 almost 35. Basically destroyed my life by entering a marriage at 22. I was still so young and to top it off, I’ve always been a slow developer and just wasn’t ready for a marriage. My mentality at 22 was more like a teenager. I didn’t have kids with my ex. He ended up breaking my heart. I went through years of heartbreak and was never able to find love again. I entered into a relationship in 2016 that went on for so long with somebody I just didn’t love. I stayed because I was afraid of leaving. Now I find myself almost 35 and alone.
I decided to get my eggs frozen. I used CNY because I thought they have experience and the price was right. I sort of regret using them because my treatment was not individualized at all. It involved just so much stress to do outside monitoring and coordinate test results between the clinics. There are pros and cons to that clinic. The owner seems like a very kind man who makes himself very available to patients, but they also just have so many clients you are just a number. They oftentimes forget what you are doing and would forget whether I was doing just oocyte banking or IVF.
Anyway, I responded good to meds and I actually think they over medicated me as my estrogen level reached over 2,000 before my retrieval. I definitely had some OHSS after. They retrieved 48 eggs from me and 27 were frozen.
I felt confident at this large number. Note, I was just told the number on the phone. Once I got home, I noticed CNY had never uploaded any kind of report. I pressed them to give me some documentation. For a few days I didn’t check my patient portal or email associated with my portal. I notice they uploaded this document stating the eggs frozen. At the very bottom there is a small note on my medical notes that said “oocytes appeared poor at time of stripping.”
I panicked. I feel I did all this for nothing. I’m so depressed. My life feels over. I also notice there is an egg donor tab on my profile that previously was not there. When I click on it, it shows available egg donors. Maybe this tab was there before my retrieval, but I find it off that I did not notice as I am an extremely observant person.
I would never use an egg donor. I would just not have kids. I respect what other people do, but just something that does not call me.
I am crying nonstop. I’ve had an extremely stressful life these past few years. I have a good profession, but work a dead end job within my profession. In addition, I care give along with my mother for my 90 year old grandmother. It’s not easy to watch somebody so close to you get old. Most of my family do not even know about some of my personal problems I’m having.
tl; dr I just noticed a note on my medical notes that said “oocytes appeared poor at time of stripping.”
This is causing me major anxiety. It’s late and obviously nobody will answer me. Tonight will be a night of anxiety. Has anybody else noticed this on their notes or been told this? Has anybody produced a high number of low quality eggs?

2023.02.03 05:44 CardShark555 Cigna - WFH clinical pharm?

Anyone wfm for Cigna doing PAs/clinical pharmacist job title? I had a pre-interview today and am curious if anyone does this and how they like it. Tried to search here and didn't find much.
Currently work independent retail, which I love, but we are a small shop and my coworkers stir a lot of sh*t. Every week someone isn't talking to someone else, etc...and there's only 5 of us in total!! I can't deal anymore.
I have about 10 years until I retire and I'm not sure if WFM doing PAs is feasible for that amount of time. But chances are my store won't last 10 more years...and I'm not stepping foot in a chain LOL!
Thanks for reading.

2023.02.03 05:18 MustardMahatma Extension of probationary period because I called out due to actual emergencies

I work as a vet tech in a very small practice of 1 doctor and 3 employees including myself. I started at this practice in Nov 2022 after leaving my previous large 4-doctor, more adequately staffed (still understaffed, but less-so) hospital. In my 3 months here, I have called out 3 times due to completely unexpected family emergencies. Mind you, I am not one to randomly call out for no reason, even as someone who has been dealing with ongoing family issues, healing from an extremely abusive home-life, and as someone living with cptsd, and just simply as a healthcare worker with burnout! I still show up and show passion and drive, stay late every day and show a commitment to my work and the patients and clients I service. Anyway… I was recently sat down by my boss, the Dr and practice owner of this clinic, and she informed me that she will be extending my 90 day probationary period another 90 days bc I call out far too much. She said that in these next 90 days, I cannot call out, and she eluded to the fact that I would be fired if I do. She claimed that she sees my drive and desires to help me in my journey to vet school but is constantly an unpredictable ball of stress and takes it out in passive aggressive ways towards us. Below, I have listed the reasons for my calling out: - December 19th- I was vomiting and couldn’t keep any food down, could barely stand up - January 9th- My 85y/o grandma fell but was okay (context: I live with my grandparents & my mother and myself are their only caretakers) -January 19th- my 87 y/o grandpa fell, sustained injuries, and had to stay in the hospital with my mother’s visitation while I had to stay home to care for my grandma as she is completely unable to care for herself. -January 20th-30th- I found out that I had Covid (of which I believe I contracted due to my boss’s negligence with my coworker who had it just one week prior) and showed her proof. Was ready to return to work after the 5 days but she asked my symptoms and since I still had a little shortness of breath, she didn’t permit me to return until after a full 10 days after symptom onset.
So….calling out too much? Seriously? I couldn’t control literally any of these circumstances. I’m just baffled that she said that and had the nerve to tell me “as an aside, when you first start at a new job, it doesn’t look good to call out repeatedly”….like thanks for the advice I’ll tell my grandparents to stop getting hurt bc no one else is around to care for them………..like okay I’ll make sure to never get a stomach bug or Covid ever again 👍🏼 even tho I believe I got Covid from ole girl at work bc I had no other exposure.

2023.02.03 04:53 onegetsoverthings Symptoms Get Worse/Better?

So, I’m pretty certain I got Covid in late Dec 2019. I was traveling for work in a place with a high concentration of tourists, got home, and got sicker than I’d ever been.
Since then, I’ve had irregulasluggish heartbeats, difficulty breathing, brain fog (to a scary degree) and exhaustion that just never seemed to go away. My symptoms would lighten or worsen, but never seem to go away completely. I’ve been tested for literally everything my doctor could think of, and it all came back ‘fine’, and she just got tired of me, and suggested long Covid as a possibility about 8-10 months ago. There’s a local clinic she apparently referred my case to, but I haven’t heard back, they’re at capacity.
With each wave or surge of symptoms, they stay longer and longer and I’m just terrified. I have no safety net, no family who I could fall back on, I work in a high stress job and am not really qualified for much else at this point. I’m scared/terrified for being able to support myself in the future.
I was so desperate to be able to do any amount of work today (my boss is asking why things aren’t done) that I took Sudafed (which usually keeps me wired for daaaaays), three energy drinks, and three cups of coffee (In terms of caffeine, I normally drink half a latte most days). Nothing. I could pass out and sleep for hours where I sit. What has this this done to our bodies that literally loading up on stimulants has no effect…?!
Does anyone else have symptoms come and go so severely? Does anything work in terms of getting through the day? How/what have you told your jobs about your diminished capacity (if you’ve told them anything at all)?

2023.02.03 04:22 librarysquarian How to stay fresh while take time off?

I’d only been in the field of clinical social work for about 2 years and now am not going to be working for a while - most likely 2-3 years. What might you advise someone to do to stay fresh and updated on best practices before going back to work/looking for a new job?

2023.02.03 04:07 ExcellentAd5875 Need CNA references

I never had a job as a CNA before as I just got my license. I kinda keep to myself and don’t have many people I can count on. I can’t trust previous employers to give me an honest review or don’t have I contract with them anymore. If anybody with clinical experience or someone who just wants to help, I’d greatly appreciate it. You’d be helping me get my first job in the medical field ! I believe you would just get a call or email and you would just answer a few questions. You would have to play a role as either a manager or coworker. Thank you so much.

2023.02.03 03:25 Super-Ego1945 What should I do with my life and degree in Psychology?

Here is my story. I am in my early 40s, I have a Masters degree in Psychology from a foreign university. I had my diploma evaluated here in the States. I have been a stay at home mom for the last 12 years, and that was pretty much my career. And I am really good at that:) My kids are well adjusted, involved in extracurricular activities, and community life. I have been volunteering at school a lot when they were younger, but now they are in middle school, and possibilities are limited. All my official work experience is two years as a title searcher in a real estate company and two years in a welfare agency processing food stamps and Medicaid cases. I really want to enter the workforce again, but I don't know where to start.
I don't want to go back to a government job I had, it's not really challenging and pay is really low. I want to do something more in line with my degree, but it's my understanding that to work as a clinical psychologist I will have to go back to school to get a PhD, and I feel that I'm kind of too old for that...
Maybe you could have any suggestions in terms of a career? I love working with people, and would like to do something hands on, like maybe counseling. I know that my age and a gap in a career is a big minus, but do you think I might have a chance?

2023.02.03 03:10 mysteriousloner How do I pick a path?

i’m so lost in life. i am a 23 year old who is currently working at a restaurant. my other experience consist of an hr internship in 2020. i started college in 2017 right after high school. in 2021, i stopped to figure what i want to do. i was aiming for business to get into hr, but had doubts. i always like healthcare and imagine myself in a clinical setting. i like learning about the human body, but imagine myself at a desk doing administrative work sometimes. now i am thinking about doing the vocational nursing or finish my bachelors to get into recruiting. i am even thing about executive assisting or accounting. i am also thinking about clinical lab science, but don’t want to take years to finish my education and just want to get a career started since i’m already (almost) 24. but no matter what, i want to be financially stable where i can buy myself a 1b/1b condo somewhere, have my car, pay my bills on time, have extra money over for fun/savings, and build a relationship. all of the careers can provide that. i just want an independent life. i’m just afraid with whatever i chose above that i will struggle with the curriculum, finding an internship/job, financially, duties of those jobs or drop out again. i change my mind so many times, idk what to do. i wish i had it figured out. the way my life is going, it just feels so bleak. how do i stick with something? i make a plan for one thing, get excited about, then it disappears and back to square one. —- Bay Area, CA.
What do I do? Thank you!

2023.02.03 02:17 beabirdie I have no clue what career I want to pursue.

I’m an 18yr girl in my second semester of getting a biology degree. I’ve always wanted to be a vet and, as dumb as it sounds, that dream only grew stronger since the first time I watched The Walking Dead and saw Hershel, as well as the hundred of vet shows on television (I know neither are very realistic depictions of veterinarians I just like them and find them inspiring). Recently I’ve lost interest due to more research and feedback from people in the veterinary field. Many jobs I consider are low-paying, extremely expensive to pursue, or far away. At this point I have no clue what to do, I’m discouraged from everything I consider by family and sometimes myself, and I’m terrified of being in debt. I could definitely use advice and please be nice!!

I’m interested in getting to know you and what your life is like and how you’re doing. I like to decorate my stationery and send postcards too. Just wanting to have fun and make a friend.

2023.02.03 01:42 noirosies seeking advice on how to be there for my mom

hello. this is my first post here, but i’ve shared stories about my mom’s pancreatic cancer on other communities before. She was diagnosed in July of 2022. She got surgery in September and it was successful. Before starting chemotherapy the last CTA showed very small mets to the liver. So she started Folfirinox. After about one week and half, she started having symptoms of intestinal occlusion. She was brought at my city’s clinic and they kept there for a month to understand what it was and hopefully fix it. Nothing. The CTA scans didn’t show anything. She was moved to a bigger hospital, where they ran even more tests and said it has spread to the peritoneum. I’ve been in contact with the surgeon who did the surgery on her (even though he already did his job and could perfectly not care less, he texts me and my mother often to know how she is, I’m very thankful since he always finds time to even call us) and we’ve sent him the latest MRI and he said all he can see from it are the metastasis on the liver. I’m confused. My mom hasn’t ate anything since December and is on parenteral nutrition. The oncologists said she’s still treatable and can do chemotherapy even though she’s very weakened. She got home just today, and has a visit with them in four days to talk about chemotherapy. I asked the doctors multiple times if she was treatable and if she’s terminal. They said she’s not terminal, she can do chemotherapy. She’s home now, quite tired but in way better spirits because she’s happy to be here. However, she often says she just wants to see how things go; she doesn’t want to hope. When I talked to her about an event in the near future (me getting my degree and moving abroad) she chucked saying she probably won’t be there to see it . How should I reply to something like that? I told her to try and stay calm, and she noticed it made me a bit upset and said she won’t share thoughts like that anymore. I want her to freely express her worries if she wants to. What can I tell her ? What can I do for her?

2023.02.03 01:26 Lavender015 I (24F) wanted to move out with my partner (34M) of 5 years but he seems hesitant

(apologies in advance for my bad writing, English is not my first language even though I have spoken English language for years, I'm still terrible at writing)
We both lived separately in our family's house so we never lived together in London. I have been with my partner for 5 years and during those years, I was in university. Also, I would like to mention he's been clinically diagnosed with anxiety so any changes in his life and routine triggers his anxiety alot.
4 years ago (before COVID) he said that if I didn't go uni we would have moved in together already but skip forward to 2023... due to the living cost crisis in the UK. He seems hesitant even moving out from his family's home (which his parents fully own the house) he doesn't pay rent or any bills because his parents doesn't want him to and encourages for him to save up so one day he can put a deposit down on a property. His parents (well, mostly his mum) are very old school she doesn't agree in renting because they think it's a waste of money and she says "why not spend monthly on a mortgage instad of renting" it's a valid point but buying a property in London is ridiculous and it's not even worth it but also, I never lived with my partner so we didn't want to commit to a mortgage if we don't know what it's like living together so... We are doing a trial?
Me on the other hand, I help out my parents pay the rent and bills in my family home (we don't own a property, we just rent) Although, we do own a house in my home country.
We wanted to move in together this year because I graduated last year and I finally landed on a job with decent pay. My Salary is 27k a year and he works only part-time (his salary is 20k a year) he is looking for a 2nd job to occupy his time. We were looking at 1 bedroom to studio flats but the rental price is ridiculous in London. Our budget was £1,500 per month but now we had to reduce it to Atleast £1,300 MAX because we realised there are extra costs along with the rent like electric, gas and water bills and council tax (to my non UK readers, you can search what is council taxes)
In all honesty, I was the only one looking at apartments... there wasn't really a "WE" I mostly searched and sent the link to him to see his opinion and he would tell me to email the agency or call them. So basically, I was the one putting the work because I really wanted to move out and finally have a life with my partner. I noticed, he doesn't really seem keen on looking with me or he seems hesitant. I was looking at apartments that was close to our workplace and when I saw a studio flat that was near to his parents house, he seems more excited in comparison to the other apartments I have showed him because he said "Atleast, I'm nearer to my parents"
We (well, I) stopped looking for apartments now because he just gave up and he's not very optimistic about how the economy is doing. He suggested that we save up together which is not a bad idea even though both of us combined have enough savings to actually move in like RIGHT NOW but he wants a separate one where it's not coming from our own savings. He wants a joint account together for when we actually move out.
I get it, moving away from family is sad. I have done it before every single year when I have to go back to my campus when I moved out in uni. I knew what it felt like but thats life and also, he is in his 30's and never moved out in his life except for when he went to long holidays (he was staying with friends) I am also aware that we are in a living cost crisis. He doesn't want to talk about renting and housing anymore because it makes him upset so I stopped mentioning it and even sending him properties for us to live in.
I love this man to pieces. He is financially responsible and very good with his money so I do take his advice really serious but I'm just starting to think if he really sees a future with me or not. He keeps telling everyone that he wants to marry me but I'm thinking if we get engaged are we never going to live together?
I'm jealous of other couples who only knew eachother for only a few years and they have moved in together. Some couples just figure things out along the way. I'm ready to dive into anything and he on the other hand, he needs things carefully planned out.
TLDR: I wanted to move out with my partner of 5yrs but he seems hesitant due to cost of living crisis here in the UK so he suggested to save up for a year so we can move in together.

2023.02.03 01:18 piaggihoe Looking for free or low-cost therapy in Seattle

Hey there. I’m a 23 y/o male and I’ve got explosive anger issues. I’m out of work because I’m waiting on a background and security clearance for a job in downtown to go through. Meanwhile, I’ve been doing gig jobs to get by. So, I meet a lot of interesting characters that test my anger and my ability to restrain myself. Today I almost punched an old man who was clearly trying to pull an insurance scam on me. I can’t go on like this, I need help. I have a future ahead of me and I’m afraid I’m going to throw it all away in a matter of seconds with my anger. Please, does anyone here know where I can get help? I’m even willing to go to a group therapy style clinic. I just want to feel in control. Thanks
TLDR: need low cost or free anger management help

Hello,
I am finishing my MPH this summer and have begun job searching. I have 5 years of clinical background in laboratory microbiology and the hospital I work at is willing to interview me for an Infection Control Preventionist position. This is all preliminary because I'm still considering working at a Health Department, but should I even bother applying with my lack of experience ? Any Infection Control Preventionist here willing to provide me with interview tips? TIA

2023.02.03 00:45 PlasticStranger210 Shifting to Macro Social Work

Hello, I'm looking for any guidance or recommendations folks may have for shifting from clinical work to more macro, behind-the-scenes social work.
I achieved my LICSW in mid-2022, shortly after which I left my job of about 2.5 years (from which I had become profoundly burned out) and moved into a more independent role. After only a few months in the new role, I found myself praying clients would no-show, physically tense and trembling with anxiety, and downright miserable. I quit in late 2022 because I couldn't take it anymore and haven't worked since.
I thought for a while that I would leave social work altogether but have been reconsidering over the past month. I believe the aspect that was so unbearable for me was the client work--the anxiety that arose for me both in the moment when physically with the client and around being responsible for the client's diagnosis and referrals and safety. During my grad school internships, I did some projects with policies and agency development and really enjoyed them, so I've been thinking I could excel in that type of role. However, I have been struggling to find any positions of this nature.
Does anyone have any recommendations for shifting to the type of work? Job search terms, where to look, anything may be helpful.

2023.02.03 00:24 YahYah2424 How far do you have to travel to get to an Emergency (after hours) Veterinary clinic?

Hey everyone, I was just thinking about our recent trips to the emergency vet and how long it takes us to get to the nearest 2 and I got to wondering... how far is the nearest vet clinic to where you live? What county do you live in? And if you don't mind sharing, what city/town do you live in?
We're in the Richmond area so our drive to Lewiston (when it's staffed) isn't that far, but during COVID we had to go down to Westbrook. I often wonder what the options are up in The County, and in the farther reaches of downeast Maine or the western mountain regions.

2023.02.03 00:00 rantingelf Wannabe therapist/New Immigrant/Absolute Newbie

Hello, I (29F) am a recent immigrant to the US and I am considering a career change into counseling. I've been interested in being a therapist for quite a while now but being in a financially tight spot, I couldn't bring myself to do a bachelor's and masters in Psychology. I have a degree in languages and have been working as an ESL teacher and in HR, but I don't think I can do these jobs anymore. I'm currently volunteering as a mentor in a teen mental health setup and thoroughly enjoy it, but having to go to school is holding me back. I see most job adverts asking for a Master's degree, so would it be possible for me to go straight for a Master's program without a bachelor's?
I have a few questions that I hope some of you may be able to answer:
  1. Feasibility of doing Master's only while working full time: Is it possible to pursue a Master's degree in counseling while working full time? I'm interested in an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counselling offered at a community college, it's catered towards licensing and I find that quite appealing, but I don't know if I'll be able to catch up without a bachelor's and while working full time. Do people do this?
  2. Career Switcher: How difficult is it for someone like me, who has no background in behavioral sciences, to make a transition into counseling? I see MSW being talked about often, is it the faster route to getting a job?
  3. Living in Expensive City: What are the salaries for counselors, and what is the return on investment like in an expensive city?
  4. Finding the right program: Are community colleges that focus on licensure acceptable, or should I be looking at other options?
  5. Getting started: What are some things I can do now to start my journey?
I would really appreciate any advice, guidance, or resources that you may be able to offer. Thank you in advance for your help!
