How can I ask my boss if I can pump at work?

How can I ask my boss if I can pump at work?

Bosses are people...: ...Too. Yours is probably interested in having a happy, productive, enthusiastic employee: you. When they can combine enlightened self-interest with the good feeling they can get from allowing you to properly care for your child, they will be happy too. Put it that way to your boss, and happiness will follow. :). ...Read more

I have to talk a lot at work. How can I protect my voice?

I have to talk a lot at work. How can I protect my voice?

By speaking properly: Speaking is like anything we do. It can be done well or done poorly. There is a proper way to speak involving good breathing and "support" combined with a relaxed neck and voice box. A lot of people don't breath properly and "squeeze" or tense their throat muscles when they speak. These people will feel tired and uncomfortable after speaking a lot. A speech therapist can fix this. ...Read more

How do I tell my boss that I want to be a stay at home mom?

How do I tell my boss that I want to be a stay at home mom?

Be straightforward: Just tell your boss that you want to stay home. In most of this country it's normal and accepted to stay home with your kids while they're small. I don't think anyone will give you a hard time, at least not to your face. When i interviewed for med school i remember one professor saying that if a woman wanted to stay home and raise her kids, she was doing something more worthwhile than medicine. ...Read more

How can I speak to my dr so that she doesn't get so frustrated, and takes me seriously? It's like i can't do anything right, and then i switch to being 8 yrs old and terrified. What can I do to help?

How can I speak to my dr so that she doesn't get so frustrated, and takes me seriously? It's like i can't do anything right, and then i switch to being 8 yrs old and terrified. What can I do to help?

Which doctor?: I'm sorry you're having difficulty talking with your doctor. We try our best, but our best may at times be not so good. It's also common for patterns that trouble patients' personal relationships, to surface in psychotherapy. If this is your therapist or psychiatrist, discussing and dealing with issues that arise between you is part of the healing work. So please, tell them how you're feeling. ...Read more

Well i want to know if ill get caught on thursday am about to join a soccer team for highschool, the coach told me to go get a check up from the doctor and i smoked weed today i don't know if i can make it.

Well i want to know if ill get caught on thursday am about to join a soccer team for highschool, the coach told me to go get a check up from the doctor and i smoked weed today i don't know if  i can make it.

Probably not: If they are doing a drug test. It would seem that smoking weed is more important to you than getting on the team. Am also a tad confused that you list your age as 23 years old and you are going out for a high school soccer team? Something doesn't make sense here. I think you need to talk to a counselor about your use of weed and how much it may be getting in the way of the rest of your life. ...Read more

I work out in gym. Till when i can take multivitamins and multiminerals? I want to ask how much months i can take it?

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. You can take them as long as you wish. ...Read more

I need my scripts of 1mlg xanax (alprazolam) 4 times a day and Prozac back I need to know of I can get them before I can pay can't afford to not get what I need ?

Prozac/fluoxetine is: a Wal-Mart $4 prescription. Your prescriber may be willing to call in your script. It is wise (if you have not yet done so) to develop anxiety management strategies to replace your use of Xanax (alprazolam). If you cannot afford a therapist check with local mental health regarding sliding scale program. There are self-guided books and support groups and church programs in some areas. Best regards for relief. ...Read more

How can I tell doctors that I don't wart to go any more appointments , I just want to be left alone and get better on my own. They won't listen ?

How can I tell doctors that I don't wart to go any more appointments , I just want to be left alone and get better on my own. They won't listen ?

Frustration: I guess the doctors are trying to help based on their knowledge and training. While they may be following required care standards they are unlikely to compel you to receive any care that is not mandated by law. Hence you can cancel the doctor patient relationship by informing your doctor and could change to another. ...Read more
