That's largely a myth. After the shooting in Littleton, Colorado in the late 90s there was a popular hypotheses that the shooters were bullied and that led to their actions. However, forensic psychologists studied the shooting and lead up for months and found that, if anything, the shooters had been the bullies and the kids at Columbine HS didn't do anything to cause the shooting and were just unlucky to go to school with kids whp has serious problems and access to guns.

Exactly. The parts of other cultures that include outsiders are always the fun parts. Not saying that’s bad necessarily, but I wouldn’t just take my child to fireworks on Canal Street and think I was educating her about Chinese culture. [ Reply | More ]

Its fun, and it allows you to explain to your DD why there are fireworks and what they are for. The plus side for most people and probably the downside for you is that you will actually have to learn about other cultures. [ Reply | More ]

But they aren’t learning about other cultures. They are learning about the single best day of the year to be part of that culture. Do you also explain book binding and the one-child policy? If you go to a seder do you explain why only men can be rabbis and women can’t wear trousers and someone who isn’t a doctor cuts parts off babies’ sex organs? It’s not learning about the culture, it’s the Disney version. [ Reply | More ]

Np. The problem is you don’t know the extent of the problem until you do know and then it’s burning up the years. Get as much testing now as you can like labs that indicate how fertile you are and keep in mind fertility has been declining every year since your prime which I recall being medically early 20s. Then precipitous further decline right around mid 30s. It would be simplistic for anyone on ub to say you can or can’t wait 3 years. You could be lucky, unlucky, have a lot of endurance for ivf treatments, unable despite them, or be one of those who’s very fertile at 43. You don’t fully know until you truly attempt pregnancy. I personally would play it safe (as some one who dealt with 5 ivf cycles starting age 35) and start trying in 3 mos. then your maternity leave at earliest will be a year after job start but you won’t have waited much longer (if all goes well). But obviously I bring a certain outlook. [ Reply | More ]

I had my first at 41. All the women in my family and in DH family had careers and had children in their late 30s, so I was pretty certain that I would be able to as well. I had no problem getting pregnant without assistance. What I didn’t anticipate was having to get surgery to remove a fibroid that was preventing me from carrying a successful pregnancy. I would probably freeze eggs or embryos now and do a general workup so that when you are ready, you are all set to go! [ Reply | More ]

I had DC at 35, the year after i made equity partner. Biglaw. No regrets. Wouldn't say it's my dream job, but I'm good at it and it pays an unreal amount of money, which provides all of my family's financial stability (including safety net for parents and sibs). If I didn't have my job, we would be totally screwed right now and I would have had a stroke from the stress. Get established at work and then have a DC, IME once you have proven you are a strong performer and can be trusted it is much less of a big deal if you take a leave, and they are more willing to be flexible because they know you will make it work.

i would start "trying" within a year. insurance won't cover any fertility issues (if you have them) unless you've tried for atleast a year. if you really want kids, i would try and get the first one in before 35 [ Reply | More ]

Does it have to be Caribbean? You could do a four-night cruise out of Port Canaveral for that. Bahamas though — not long enough to do the Caribbean. [ Reply | More ]

or Are you sure? On my globe it’s in the Atlantic. Anyway, cruise-wise they differentiate between the two, and a “Caribbean” itinerary out of Florida would take longer and cost more than op’s budget. [ Reply | More ]

You are splitting hairs. It is considered part of the Caribbean by most people, just like Turks and Caicos. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound snippy. My point is just that you can take a short cruise from Florida to the Bahamas and back, maybe two sea days and two shore days, but to get to Jamaica/Grand Cayman etc. from Florida you would need a longer, costlier cruise. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Anyone had shoulder problems? I think PT is a waste of time. Go straight for the steroid injection. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Disagree. I had a shoulder injury (fell directly on it) and PT worked very well. Also had a injection of some sort. Cortisone? [ Reply | More ]

Yes, impingement. I had a complete shoulder separation many years ago and in recent years it has given me trouble on and off. I have a hooked acromion plus bony spurs/arthritis around the surgery area. This adds up to impingement. Got the steroid injection and I had a flare. So painful! After a few days, however, pain free. I've been pain free for a few years now. I'd go for the steriod injection again in a heartbeat! [ Reply | More ]

^^I will express a beef I have with steroid injections. Why is this classified as a surgical procedure by insurance companies? It stinks. [ Reply | More ]

I have a strained rotator cuff, and the PT was going to cost a fortune, so I unloaded half the crap from my everyday tote and bought a granny cart for errands. It doesn’t hurt any more. [ Reply | More ]
