It's really wild seeing this come in waves -- as of today, the US is... what... 9ish days behind Italy now? But, it feels even closer for the West Coast due to our hot spots (Seattle, SF, San Jose); whereas, I'm seeing friends in Montana anticipating a tsunami that they can't see with WAY LESS reports. 


As of this past Friday, my employer was still operating as usual (though tons of Bay Area companies were already requiring mandatory WFH). Sunday rolled around so I emailed my supervisor to request permission to WFH as I'm immunocompromised due to my asthma. This morning rolls around and I still hadn't heard back; I prodded about a couple hours later and was met with "all employees that request this time away from the office are required to log it as PTO/take unpaid leave."


That quickly changed when noon hit: the State Capitol issued the strictest 'shelter in place' law requiring 6 Bay Area counties (~6.7 mil) to leave home only for the essentials until April 7, and mandated work from home unless you are in an essential career field. The CEO still managed to throw in a 'using PTO/No Pay during unproductive periods over the coming weeks will maximize our ability to stay a strong company' like lmao we're not fiscally equipped to handle this, and we expect you to make up the difference so we don't have to. Here's the kicker: I'm salary, and have enough PTO/Flex Vacation to last me until Monday. They didn't say this was mandatory, but I'm gonna fucking work every day even if that means I'm looking busy




Anyways tldr this is what Rome looked like 17 days ago: https://twitter.com/...723708411346945


Please take care of yourselves and try to isolate. It's going to get worse before it gets better.

I had to get off the two that I was on because they were doing more harm to me than good.


I unfortunately quit cold turkey (because as I was realizing they were bad for me, I was taking them sporadically) -- me skipping doses isn't what triggered them not to work anymore.

Two weeks no alcohol today, officially the longest stretch in my adult life and I have had no urge which is wild to me. Ultimate test is playing a show tonight, "hurry up and wait" has always made it easy, especially with a 5 PM load in to go on at 9:15.


you did it!!

#1412222 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by exitlava on 07 January 2020 - 06:30 PM

Just when I feel like I've managed to get a hold on shit, something else comes tumbling down my path. I'm finding a lot of my depression is stemmed from financial shit, which is a goddamn travesty that no one should have to experience. First it was my car last year (both my old one breaking down for real/needing a new one and that new one getting towed at some point and sent to an impound lot) and now it's my damn computer which I need for my graphic design, visuals and side hustle -- each a very important piece of me -- on top of the mountain I debt I accrued from not-so-ideal living arrangements that's damn near impossible to get rid of. I can't keep up. 


I know a lot of you may not know who I am (I've been too timid and awkward to try to mingle with y'all IRL because I feel like I don't belong since I'm so new -- see: anxiety), but I made a GoFundMe for aforementioned computer thing and I would be touched if y'all could give it a look and donate/share if you're willing. I hate doing this as I am absolutely the type of person that hates asking for help.




I also have Venmo/PayPal if you want to contribute directly so I can dodge the platform taking their percentage out. Just let me know :)
