    Congrats! It's a great feeling to actually have a choice, isn't it?

    I'm currently nearing the end of my second week at my new logistics job and I'm loving it. I feel valued and appreciated at work for the first time in years. I knew Walgreens had gotten pretty bad, but it's hard to believe how good leaving that company has been for my mental health.

    It is! Although, as mentioned, I feel overwhelmed. These past two weeks were quite stressful with several interviews and constant phone calls (I hate phone calls), so I'm glad it's Saturday tomorrow. While I'm glad to be done with my current job by the end of this month (almost made me burn out earlier this year), I'm also glad I had the opportunity to work on some projects that really upped my value on the market (not that I'm ever going to be rich, I remain a pixel pusher and I do like my job :D)

    Congrats on your new job, btw!

    Great news! I'm sure you'll get the right one and settle in well.

    Thanks! :D I went with the company where the people whom I interviewed with seemed the friendliest, so hoping for the best.

    Long time no see... I just have to tell someone: I've been looking for a new job. And I got a new job! But this is the first time in my life that I have to now contact people to tell them I decided on another offer, because I have more than one offer, and I'm just feeling overwhelmed :apt:

    No power in Kharkiv, Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk and Sumy oblasts. Grr. But apparantly also in parts of Belgorod oblast. Good riddance.

    Anyway, my brother confirms the Kharkiv part.

    I'd go on symptoms, Puck. If you feel too sick to work, then don't. If you feel well enough then continue. You have tested negative, there isn't a lot more that you can do. In the UK there are a lot of people with symptoms who are testing negative - it could easily be another 'cold' virus. These people in my social circle are putting masks on and going about their business and hoping for the best but not visiting people they know are vulnerable until symptoms pass.

    The pandemic 'vibe' and testing options lead us all to massively overthink every cold-like symptom.

    I'd normally agree, but I've got almost the exact same symptoms in the same order as my mom when she had Covid earlier this year (and she got an official test done by our GP). I'm not sure I'm ok to work again, mostly I just don't want to risk spearing it in case I do have it. I know, with Omicron it's not that bad, but you never know who will react in what way. To be fair, I've still got the migraine going. I emailed my GP and will stay home tomorrow. If she tells me it's fine, I can go back to work on Tuesday.

    After two and a half years I may or may not have joined the exalted club of those who have had Covid... I've nothing but symptoms to go on (fatigue, foggy brain, throat feeling funny, shortness of breath, migraine for days) and those intergrated so smoothly into my standard malaises of (severe) headaches and allergic asthma I chucked it up to the weather making me feel funny for several days. And when on day six of symptoms my foggy, stubborn brain got the idea to do a test, two of those quick home tests came out negative, so it's still up in the air (you only get the proper test here atm when the home one was positive and/or you've got very obvious symptoms). But it just makes too much sense, especially the clustering and duration of symptoms, which is unusual.

    Now, do I annoy my GP about getting a proper test? Does it make sense a week after first symptoms, or do I just take another two or three days off work just to be sure I can't transmit it in case it is the 'Rona?

    I'm in the US (so still with the ugly stuff, but less with ground refusing to still) I'm okay, and it looks like all friends and family are okay (if a little bit traumatised, apparently it's not a pleasant experience even for those who are not injured or have any property damage or anything).
