2023.06.07 05:14 EntertainmentNo7505 What precautions can you take with history of POSTPARTUM preeclampsia?

Are there even any? I’m 2 for 2 on being hospitalized 5 days postpartum for scary high blood pressure and we just found out we are pregnant with baby number 3, just 7 months after giving birth. Unplanned, we were using protection and my husband had a consult for vasectomy coming up. 😭
The only thing I’ve been advised to do is take baby aspirin so far. With my first, I had slightly elevated BP during my induction that relieved itself after birth for 4-5 days before spiking. With the second, it creeped into high 130/80 the week I went into labor on my own but was perfect throughout labor.
I am terrified for what possibly going through everything for a 3rd time will do to my health. As dramatic as it sounds I’m terrified of dying.

2023.06.07 05:13 PlobGnarTheGnarShnar Got fired after coming back from being on work leave from doctor.

For full context- I worked at Dave and Busters up till today, and I have injury on my left foot that I needed to get a brace and boot for before I could return to work.
I sent the doctors notes immediately as I received them, I had two sent to them- Thurs last week and Fri the previous week. I was scheduled to work the Thursday of the previous week and all days from Mon-Fri of the week after.
My doctors note excused me for all of that, and I communicated all of the information with the store and with my manager. I come in today, as I was scheduled, and I'm told I'm being fired for no call no showing for Thursday before I sent the note in Friday, and Wed, the day before I sent them the next note. And I was told I didn't communicate at all with the store. This is in many ways incorrect.
Now, I could have sent the notes quicker to them, but they don't have a fax machine, and I don't have a vehicle rn, so I couldn't pick up the note across town (30min drive), and they knew that, and knew I would have to send it when I received it via the online portal. I sent the notes as soon as I could and kept my boss updated along the process. I called the store all throughout this process, on 4 separate occasions. The first date they say I didn't call out, I did call, and didn't receive an answer so I contacted my boss directly.
All of this is on my phone proving it to my employer. Do I have a legal case here? I feel I may have been illegally fired. Should I get a consultation and present this information? 🤔 That's what I'm trying to figure out. I can supply any more information if needed!!! I was not paid out for anything either and I worked there for almost near 2 years at this point.

2023.06.07 05:05 bilinguaIslp Salary Negotiation for Public Schools?

Hello! I’m a recent grad and looking for CFs right now. I’m wondering if there is a standard for public schools of not asking for salary negotiations since there is usually a set pay scale already? I’ve been told to always negotiate but I don’t want to start that conversation if it’s not the norm with public schools! Thank you so much!

2023.06.07 05:02 Open-Look9786 How to get someone to go to a therapist?

My wife is self deprecating, and is her own worst critic. She sees all the flaws in herself. This was driven into her by her mother. It’s especially prevalent in times of stress: like when her parents are coming for a visit in 2 days and our washer breaks. She then goes on a rant, the same rant I’ve heard many times in 20 years of marriage. I’m a failure. I’m so behind. My mom will look at this mess of a house and judge me the entire time. Etc.
Money is not the issue. I do make a good salary at $150k, so it’s not a problem. Time is not an issue, she has the afternoons free when she’s done teaching. I’ve offered to pay for this before. Indefinite therapy to get you feeling better about yourself. It’s probably much like the old riddle: can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink. You can’t make anyone do anything, I know that, but how do you get them to see the value in this?

2023.06.07 05:02 redgemini_saturn48 fwb(19f) talking shit about me(19f) on twitter

2 weeks ago me and a friend made out in a party.
we've met back in march, so our friendship is not well established yet, since the beginning I was afraid she didn't like me(as a friend) cuz she's so much cooler than I am, I have low self esteem and I tend to sabotage my relationships. we're a trio and I always felt like she liked me the least, still.
the first time we talked with each other after the party was yesterday, we, as a trio, remembering things that happened at a party, then we start talking about how I used to ask her if she liked me, and they both said that if someone doesn't like you they wouldn't be honest about it so I shouldn't even ask.
happened to the conversation, I talked about how back in march, I was in a tarot consultation and the lady said about a bad vibe in my relationships and I asked specifically about this girl, I immediately felt guilt and tried to change the conversation, and after all things seemed fine.
I came back home and I went to Twitter, I know her account but she doesn't know I know it, and she had two specific tweets:
"rats alerting bad vibes" "looked at their face. dropped the level"
I must be over thinking but I'm not that's obviously for me! she never used "bad vibes", I'm not that pretty, I know she already made out with prettier girls, but that's so sad. I thought we were friends.
Am I crazy? What do I do to fix this?
I loved to be with her at the party, and she's such a nice person. I don't even wanna make out with her anymore, I just want her friendship, I don't have a lot of friends and I just went spiralling the last 2 days about it, am I a bad friend as well?

2023.06.07 05:00 sharkybyte101 Is this a red flag?

So it seems like I'm like probably 90% going to be hired by this international company. I'm just missing the final interview from one of the regional directors. However my interview journey haven't been the smoothest.
My supposed face to face interview with my new boss ended up being on the phone BECAUSE HR messed up and scheduled me when my future new boss was out of office. They had to meet me for a short chat the next day so they can at least meet me face to face. So that was weird, but sure, forgivable.
Cut to the date of the final interview, same thing, face to face but with the company director. I showed up to the office... aaaaaaaaaaaaaandddd he's out of the country. Bloody hell. What an absolute mess. It's been already rescheduled and unless I mess things up, I'll probably get an offer.

Anyway, if they do hire me, it is a 40% increase in salary from my current work soooo yeah... is that 40% increase worth it for what seems to be a horrible first impression...

2023.06.07 05:00 happysquidsrus Starting a 1099 Position

I was hoping smarter minds than mine could look over my plans and make sure I'm not missing anything...
Both my wife (early 30s) and I will be starting 1099 positions (combined annual salary ~250k). We plan on working for another 10-12 years. We currently have no debt, a low spending rate, and current index funds in a non-tax advantaged brokerage account.
1) As we wish to RE, I'm assuming it doesn't make sense to try and max out our 401k with the employee/employer contributions and we would be better off sticking with the normal 22.5k contribution limit into our own 401ks? Is this a safe assumption?
2) After that, would it be worth trying to figure out a way to backdoor roth some of the money and perform the roth ladder at this point?***
3) Most of our current investments are in index funds in a brokerage account. Should we continue down this road after filling our HSA or is there another tax-advantaged way to invest our extra income?
**As we have a current brokerage account, would we need to convert it into a 401k before performing a backdoor roth or am I misunderstanding what I've read?

2023.06.07 04:55 bunchesograpes Brody’s House

So I’m wondering how on earth Brody and wife afforded that house on a young couple’s salary. It seems to be the house he left from when he went to war. Neither seems to have had high paying careers at that time. A big house on nice land backing up to a forest trail in Virginia, aren’t we talking 300 grand or more in the year 2000-ish?

2023.06.07 04:54 Swimming8899 For those that did not go straight to a PhD program, why did you decide to later pursue the degree?

I am based in the United States. I always loved research in my field. I was a top undergraduate researcher and co-authored a few publications. My institution loved me. I went to an elite university for my master's program and was in debt from it. I did research and loved the program, too. I finished my master's degree at the age of 21. Growing up as a refugee who experienced poverty, I was so scared of my DEBT. I took a job that paid me very well. I actually got into 3 PhD programs but backed out last minute.
It's been 3 years now, and I have paid most of my debt. I realized that I did not need to go to an elite university for my master's degree because the quality of education is similar to the non-elite. I was able to buy a new car, get plastic surgeries to fix my obnoxious face, and spoil my family. I also got married VERY young and got divorced. I learned my lessons and lost about 20k. Now, I have about 80k of savings and 30k student loans left. I am so much happier now.
I am not happy with my high-paying job. I hate every aspect of it. I missed research. That was something I was passionate in. I was very good. I make about 150k a year now. I know that a PhD in my degree will give me a 80k starting salary, but I honestly do NOT mind. I miss being able to solves problems that I am passionate about. Research was my life. I lived for it.
Is this a reason to go back to pursue a PhD? Am I too old? I am 25 now. If I apply for this upcoming application, I won't start until I am 26. I feel so behind. I feel like a loser.

2023.06.07 04:54 furyonez What is the right amount to buy her out if i have negative equity

I have posted here many times and i cant understand why my stbx is not agreeing to what i am saying.
In washington, we bought the house for 410k last year. Been paying one year and still owe 409k.
And Redfin says 395k but my realtor assessed for 380k. House needs to be sold for 450k which is impossible right now. We would need to come up with 58k cash in order for it to sell it.
Either way I’m under the water.
I offered her 8k to buy her out of the title bc shes not even on the mortgage.
She refuses and says that i lowballing and its going to go up and wants to keep the title after divorce is finalized.
I am getting consultation on Friday and i married a dumbass.
What would be reasonable? I was going to go high as 15k and let her take the dirty money.

2023.06.07 04:52 arbr0972 Any Air Force HPSP Students here?

I'm starting school at the start of July and was under the impression it's still not too late to apply for the position. I'm just unsure about what that path forward would look like and was told I would be groomed by a recruiter, so was hoping to get current students or commissioned PAs input here. I've been unable to shake a strong desire to serve my country and would hate to regret possibly not doing this. First question is what is the loan repayment program like? I've heard 40k annually vs. 40k for the entire 4yr contract. I'm worried I will put in all the effort to do well in school but then afterward practice in a mundane setting, providing basic care for healthy soldiers, losing foundational knowledge. The loan repayment would be great, but not if the base salary is around 80k. I know im being a little vague here, so any thoughts on this or anecdotal advice on why to do it or not to would be appreciated. TIA
Edit: Single male, early 30s with no dependents.

2023.06.07 04:49 Difficult_Scallion_1 Advice on where to focus - Accountant turned Consultant turned SE

Hello fellow SE’s.
My background is accounting. I worked as a controller for a construction contractor for 8 years. During my time as controller, I was an end user for a construction specific accounting software. I ended up joining that software company as a consultant - mostly doing training and implementation. Sometimes I would do semi technical things (mostly tricks I learned from working with our IT team during customer implementation) but basically stuck to the accounting. I don’t know anything about cloud, coding, etc.
I moved from consultant to SE for this software 2 years ago. But again I’m not doing anything technical. I work with contractors and sell the value of better job costing, accounting, and project management. I set up quite a bit of demo data since many contractors have unique payroll, tax, union, and job costing needs. But when it comes to integrations and technical stuff, I stay extremely high level and refer back to our IT or customs team.
I know the product I sell really well since I used it and supported it. But I’m not sure which direction I’m going or what I should focus on to further my career. Should I focus on deepening my knowledge of the construction industry and the software I sell? Should I try to learn more about sales and maybe try for an AE or management position? Would there be any benefit for me to learn how to code or about cloud? What about product management? Would my background lend to that? Right now I feel like a fake SE because I know nothing technical - just the specific product I sell and accounting.

Last week I discovered I have swollen and enlarged lymph nodes on my neck. My rheumatologist referred me for a consultation with the head & neck doctor and now I’m having a biopsy in a couple of weeks. Has anyone ever had a biopsy done in the neck? Should I be scared or is it an easy procedure? Any advice I should follow?

2023.06.07 04:43 Runner_one The beast beneath the ice

After 35 years of marriage my wife passed away quietly in her sleep one night. I have since remarried and though we are extremely happy together, I suffer from chronic insomnia. Often my new wife has asked me what she can do to help my insomnia, sadly, there is nothing that can be done, for there is still one secret I have not shared.
Many years ago while serving in the military, an exciting opportunity presented itself, I could spend a year in an Antarctic research station. The position was very remote, and would require almost a year of isolation from my family. The position was completely voluntary, but included an absolutely insane hazardous duty pay rate, more than double my normal salary.
As a young man, tripling my annual income was impossible to refuse. Above top secret clearance was required, and the process took almost six months to complete with checks and investigations that were absolutely mind-boggling to my young self.
Finally, the day came and I shipped out, excited at the prospect of visiting a new continent, however somewhat melancholy at the prospect of leaving my family for almost a year.
On my arrival at McMurdo station in Antarctica I was shuffled into a briefing room with a few other new arrivals. There we learned that our destination was hundreds of miles deeper into the Antarctic wilderness. A frozen wasteland where temperatures never rise above freezing and even short-term exposure of unprotected skin could result in devastating frostbite.
Finally after several days of briefings and preparation we all boarded a Snow Cat type vehicle for the ride to our duty station.
Upon arriving we were assigned to our duties and our quarters and got to work. But it soon became apparent to me as well as the other new arrivals, the work made no sense. At first we simply seemed to be monitoring temperatures and seismic activity. We had to log every microscopic trimmer every minor fluctuation in temperature every environmental change, no matter how small or insignificant. This data was dutifully logged daily, and transmitted by satellite to a mysterious head office, of which, even today, I do not know the location.
That's all we did, they were no scientific experiments, searching for medical breakthroughs, no geophysical experiments, nothing that seemed to be of any consequence. We seemed to be there to do one thing and one thing only, watch for something to change. But as for why we were actually watching for we were not told, at least not at first.
For weeks on end, day and night, 24-hour darkness in the winter, 24-hour daylight in the summer, we sat there and did nothing but log incredibly minute environmental changes.
It was an easy job, if somewhat boring. And though we worked a standard three shift rotation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, off duty our time was our own, and there were plenty of recreational activities and diversions for us to enjoy, a game room, a heated pool, a well-stocked library, and everyone had a personal TV with satellite, a rarity in those days. And we were free to pursue any other leisure activities off duty, at least within the confines of the nearly sealed facility deep in the Antarctic.
But something was amiss; something was horribly out of place there. My first indication that this was not your typical or Antarctic research station was the armory. Yes an armory, but not just any armory, this armory was stocked with enough firepower and weapons to overthrow a medium-sized country. Automatic rifles, machine guns, handguns, explosives, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, almost any device of destruction you can conceive of was stored in an armory that was more than twice the size of the actual so-called research station.
About 6 months into my tour something happened, at first it seemed so insignificant, nothing more than a small earth or ice quake. It was minor, almost unnoticeable, but the ground trembled slightly for almost thirty minutes. But it was during those thirty minutes that something became stunningly clear. Something that strained the very minds of us newcomers; There was something under the ice, something alive, but sleeping. The faces of the long time denizens of that frozen wasteland betrayed their fear. Whatever was under the ice, it was something old, something huge, something hideous, and something so evil that it is beyond the words of mortal men to describe.
But what was even more terrifying than the sudden knowledge that there was something sleeping under the ice was the revelation of the fear this creature had injected into the hearts of all those who knew of existence. It was during those thirty minutes that I learned that there is more to the armory than I knew, more than any of us newcomers had ever dreamed. In a panic, I was given a key and told to prepare for the Omega Directive.
At the back of the armory was a nondescript vault door. Any comments or even suggestions of its existence had been brashly brushed aside by facility management. Before that moment, as far as anyone was concerned it did not exist, there was no door there, the fact that we could see a door didn't matter, it did not exist.
It was during the thirty minutes of terror, that due to random chance I was on duty for, that I saw what was behind the door. Behind the door were nuclear weapons, several small atomic warheads and portable lunch systems. But even that is not the most terrifying thing I saw. For at the back of the room is a key station two keys mounted about twenty feet apart, positioned in such a way that it is impossible for one person to turn both keys at the same time, no matter how ingenious or determined they are.
Decades ago, Edward Teller, the father of the atomic bomb, conceived and designed what became known as the Gigaton Device. A thermonuclear weapon thousands if not millions of times more powerful than the bombs dropped during World War II, a device capable of detonation with unimaginable destructive force. It is well recorded that Edward Teller's Gigaton Device would be so destructive that it could, in a single detonation, wipe all of New England completely off the map and, in an instant, utterly devastate almost a quarter of the United States and kill nearly a third of its population, all with a single detonation.
For decades people have slept comfortably in their beds at night knowing that the leaders of the day realized what an absurd idea it would have been to actually build such a device. Thankfully, according to history, such a device was never built. Despite all their warmongering, all their sometimes insane behavior, even politicians had a limit, and no one was mad enough to build such a nightmarish weapon.
The two simple small keyholes in the vault at the secret station in Antarctica betrayed what lay on the other side of the wall. A Gigaton Device had been built, but this device was even more powerful than Edward Teller's wildest imagination. There, deep in the Antarctic, the Gigaton Device sits in silence, waiting, waiting for the day everyone hopes never comes, for if that day were to come and those two keys were inserted and turned, the explosion would, in all and likelihood, vaporize the entire continent of Antarctica. It is a nightmare scenario, millions of cubic miles of Antarctic ice turned into steam. An explosion so powerful, so mind numbingly devastating, as to possibly crack the very crust of the Earth itself. And there it sets, even until this day, sitting there silently waiting for the day, that one horrible day that those that know of its existence hopes never comes.
But why? What nightmarish Lovecraftian abominations sleeps below the ice? What nightmare lays in respite under miles of frozen wasteland? I was never privy to the answer. But what I do know is that there is something down there, something nightmarish, something so utterly terrifying to the hearts and mind of man that humanity has created a weapon, just in case. A weapon that they hope will never be used, but a a weapon they hope would kill whatever it is sleeping below the ice, And a weapon so powerful, that if it were to ever be used, would devastate not only Antarctica, but the entire world. The aftermath of such a detonation would flood coastal cities around the world, with sea levels rising many meters literally overnight. A weapon so powerful that it is entirely conceivable that the possibility exists of it shattering the Earth's crust itself, so that the mantle could spill forth from within, a weapon so powerful that it would cast enough debris into the atmosphere as to generate a decades long nuclear winter, possibly ending civilization as we know it.
So now, decades later, I lay awake at night, wondering about those young men and women that, even now, are at that remote research station in Antarctica, watching, counting the days, and hoping that the beast never awakens.

2023.06.07 04:43 rosielle77 not sure if i should have my nasal polyps removed

i'm looking for some advice on what to do about my upcoming nasal polyps removal surgery (which is in two days).
some history on my nasal polyps...i've had it for about 6 months and at it's worst point (which was about one month ago), i couldn't breathe through my nose or go anywhere without a tissue. i was also experiencing a lot of post-nasal drip and couldn't sleep because of how much coughing i'd experience through the night. during this time and for a few weeks before it, i was using prescribed nasal spray every night and also taking zyrtec, but for the longest time, i saw no change. so i consulted with an ENT, got a CT scan, and learned that i should get the polyps surgically removed as it was very inflamed and large.
the reason i'm conflicted now about getting the surgery is because for the past 3 weeks, i can no longer feel the polyps in my nostril like i used to (and i could literally feel it in my nose for the previous 6 months) and i no longer have congestion or even a runny nose. i do have a reduced sense of smell, which could be related to having a polyps currently or it could be a side effect of having a stuffed nose for half a year, but i'm not sure if i should get it it removed if the conditions have consistently improved for 3 weeks (maybe allergy season is over? or the nasal spray's effects have finally kicked in?).
please let me know of any advice you have! i guess i'm mostly wondering if it's normal for your polyps to go through phases of disappearing or shrinking to a point where it doesn't bother you, and if it stays like that for a long time or quickly goes back to being irritating.
i think i would prefer to get surgery if this period of comfort only lasts for a little bit, but if it lasts for 6+ months, i'd rather keep the polyps as is.
thank you for reading...super overthinking this surgery...

2023.06.07 04:43 KrazyKyle1024 The Problem with Calculus in a Chemistry Major

To be clear, I enjoy math. I understand that it's at the root of pretty much everything, and especially of the things I love, such as chemistry, music, video games, and everything in between. Solving algebra is relaxing to me and takes a part of my brain that I like to exercise, and while I'm not perfect at it, its inclusion in the laws and equations of chemistry is something new that has made me love it since coming here to NCSU, even though I already loved chemistry before coming here.
I also understand the importance of entry level calculus in regards to getting a chemistry major, and I appreciate that it actually has a use in things like determining the rate of a reaction at a given time. At the entry level, it makes sense to know some calculus because if you know how to do that, you will probably know how to do any algebra thrown at you in chemistry.
By that, I mean I have, on record, from people teaching and researching in the field of chemistry, heard them say that they don't have to use calculus, and when my professor had to teach something involving it to us, he had to look at his notes for it and said that you could just look it up in the field. This is a very accomplished chemist by the way, as I assume that all chemistry professors are.
So here's my question: If my PhD/PhD study professors rarely, if ever, use calculus, why are chemistry majors required to take four different calculus courses (1, 2, 3, Differential Equations) when 1 is at least enough?
I'm going to continue with my statement that I enjoy math, because I daresay that advanced calculus is the point where math is no longer math except for, occasionally, the very beginning or the very end of a long and drawn-out puzzle. So far my calculus 2 course has been little else than definitions, new integral equations to memorize, and often unintuitive steps I have to memorize or else the whole solving process goes off the rails. One unit in the textbook is literally just about consulting a list of provided integral definitions to solve problems, which I thought was already the point of learning the material. There is also nothing in the book that gives real-life applications of the concept, so I'm being unironic when I say that seeing the dam scene in Fast X made me think of any of the concepts (namely hydrostatic forces) in any situation outside of calculus.
And the worst part about it for this class in specific? 60% of my grade comes from proctored tests, 30% comes from the final, and only 10% comes from my actual homework. 90% of my grade comes from the times when I have no notes, a scientific calculator that can't do graphing or calculus work, and my unreliable brain where despite studying, I only realize I messed up on several things after the test. Therefore, 90% of my grade comes from being in a situation that is unrealistic in the real world, because I had to leave behind both my TI-84 calculator that could basically do the problems for me and my phone that has both Desmos and Maple on mobile, not to mention Google that tells me how to solve the problems in the first place. I told my brother who goes to Appalachian State that I couldn't use Maple or anything, and he was surprised because he was allowed to use them because he would have that in a normal situation.
So what am I getting at? I don't think chemistry majors should have to take anything after Calculus 1, and calculus tests/exams (not just for chem majors but for everyone) should allow students to use Maple/Desmos, or at least the TI-84 calculator they were already required to have. In the rare case that a class needs any new calculus, it's not unreasonable to assume that it can be taught in the class using concepts from Calculus 1. Anything after that (and in that) can and will reasonably be looked up on Google. We already do that for chemistry concepts and values in the lab, which is the closest thing to us being in the field or in any normal situation, so why can't that same concept be applied for calculus?
TLDR: Calculus 2+ the way it is is outdated and unnecessary at least for Chemistry majors (probably for more than that honestly) and it needs some kind of overhaul or just be scrapped from the required courses.
Now, I understand this is just my opinion, and I doubt anything will come of this, but I wanted to vent this here because I'm sure someone else gets this and because there is NC State faculty that actually sees these posts. Chemistry is not just a "big brain" course, but having four calculus courses implies that the people in charge of creating the curriculums see it as such without considering the actual course.

2023.06.07 04:39 Dangerous-Switch1141 [California] Exempt or Non Exempt? I have never received overtime and I have been treated like an exempt salaried employee… just found out I am probably non-exempt because I make less than the exempt threshold.

Hello! I was talking with a coworker, and they mentioned something about being a salaried employee and according to state law, having to be paid twice the Californian minimum wage. That was the extent of the conversation, but I was curious so I went researched it myself because I am salaried but have never made overtime. It turns out that in California if you make under 64k you are considered non-exempt and thus eligible for overtime. Well, I make about 3K under this threshold, and thus I am assuming by law, I am considered non-exempt. Furthermore, although I understand that there seems to be no legal definition for the job duties of an exempt employee versus a non-exempt employee much of my work seems to be in the realm of exempt employee tasks as I am a marketing specialist.
My concern is that pursuing this would not be worth it. I work for a very large corporation, and I worry of the battle that could be ahead of me. If I either file a complaint with the state or seek legal counsel I am not only worried for the retaliation, but I do not have time cards, however there is proof of me working outside of the normal 8 AM to 5 PM range such as emails. Also, we are hosting a large event over the weekend which I have spearheaded and I know I will not receive overtime for running this event. I have worked at this company for over a year and a half and the management has been anything but cordial, and the communication is abysmal. Furthermore, I know California is an at-will state, but what I have been tasked to do has strayed further than what I had been hired for. As hours has been cut, and people have left, I have taken on more tasks, and I believe I deserve compensation.
I guess the TLDR of this is I am worried of seeking any type of action and the consequences I could face. Also, yes I am seeking another job but the market for my position is very volatile, especially where I live.
I know this was a lot, and I’m just trying to get my thoughts together on this, but thank you in advance!

2023.06.07 04:39 sonshineTX I am hiding $12k in credit card debt from my partner

TL/DR: Over the past 6 months, after taking a temporary cut in pay, I have racked up $12k in credit card debt that my husband doesn’t know about. I feel bad about it, but think I can get it paid off without bringing him in the loop. What would you do?
Details: This past October I started a new career. I am compensated with a base salary + commission and bonuses, but it takes a while to build a client base. I am almost to the point now (after 7-8 months) where I am making what I was making in my previous job, and comp should just be up from here. Based on my performance so far this year, I am also expecting about a $20k bonus (if not more) in October. However, the past several months of my compensation being in flux has put a huge financial strain on me and I’ve made decisions that I now regret.
Before I started the new gig, my husband and I discussed that I would be taking a significant, albeit temporary, cut in pay (about $2,000 less per month take home). I worked from home the first few months while watching our infant so that we wouldn’t have to pay for daycare. Other than that, I honestly did very little to try and cut back on expenses. When I couldn’t make ends meet, I just started putting things on my credit card. A lot of it was stuff like groceries. There was also a surprise birthday dinner for my husband that I didn’t have the cash to pay for. But there was also quite a bit of “unnecessary” spending. Things like work attire for my new job, stuff to decorate my office with, Christmas gifts that went above our budget, etc. This is all stuff that I am used to being able to pay for as it comes up, because I’ve always had a decent cushion in “my” bank account after the bills were paid. But that cushion was gone when I took the cut in pay. A couple of months ago I finally told my husband I was struggling with the pay cut and stressed about finances, so he started transferring me $500 per month to help with household expenses. He guilts me about this every month.
For some context here, DH and I have semi-separate finances. We have two joint checking accounts - his paycheck goes into one, mine goes into the other. All of our household expenses come out of “my”checking account (mortgage, utilities, groceries, car payment, insurance, cell phones, etc. and anything related to the kids). My husband puts about 75% of his paycheck into savings and lives on the rest (gas for his car, occasionally eating out for lunch - although he typically takes leftovers - and misc. things for home maintenance). DH is really frugal and basically never spend unnecessarily. He also handles our monthly church tithe (dagger in the heart here because he sounds like a saint as I write that part).
The thing is, we have a pretty decent savings account, but my husband acts like it is untouchable and gets annoyed if I tell him I need to dip into our savings for things like the Christmas gifts. He says I need to plan better and be less frivolous with my spending. I can’t say he is totally wrong, either.
Then all of the sudden in the last two months my DH got a bit of a wild hair. He wanted to to take a small family trip in May and then he was adamant we needed to book a somewhat extravagant family vacation to Florida in July. I pushed back on some of it, telling him I didn’t think we could really afford to do all of that right now, but I eventually capitulated. Then some things came up with our family car, which he would typically take care of - but it was kind of expensive to fix so he had to pull money from our savings. I just checked and we have now taken $12k out of our savings in the past few weeks to pay for these things.
The thing is, I feel like his reasons for taking money from our savings is always justified, but my reasons are not. When I bring this up he says things like “If it wasn’t for me we would have no savings” (remember, he puts most of his check in savings every month because I pay all of our household expenses).
On top of all of this, my husband has basically no federal withholdings taken out of his check. Instead, I withhold extra from mine to cover taxes we owe on his wages. (I currently earn about 1.5X his pay and within a year I think I will be at 2-2.5X his pay.) When I filed our taxes, I figured out we would be getting about $8k back (because of the job change and cut in pay I ended up paying too much in). I diverted our refund to my secret bank account that he doesn’t even know about - which only has a few hundred dollars in it right now - so that I could use the tax refund to pay down about 2/3s of the credit card debt. I justified this on my mind since most of taxes came out of my paycheck anyway.
This is effed up, right? I don’t think I am intentionally being deceptive (I mean, sort of) but I’ve kind of reached the point where I don’t feel like DH is going to help me if I need it, financially speaking. It’s on me to figure it out. And if he doesn’t agree with my decision he shames me and tells me I am selfishly overspending. But truly I think my expenses are basically normal - I don’t get my nails done (not that there is anything wrong with that), I buy a lot of my clothing secondhand, I purchase generic groceries, I don’t eat out at lunch, and I don’t really have a habit of shopping on the weekends or buying expensive shoes or purses. I think I live about the same or more cheaply than most women who make my salary. But even then I feel like I have to hide things from him. If he notices I bought something he says “Quit spending money!” even if it’s a $30 pillow from Target.
Please be brutally honest with me. What would you do in my situation? Would come clean and own up to the debt? Or just get it paid off and never speak of it. The credit card is just in my name, by the way. I know I’m not 100% right in my actions, but I also just feel a little resentful and backed into a corner. I have half a mind to start diverting a big chunk of my compensation into my secret bank account once I’m making a lot more just so I don’t have to share that money with him and I can do what I want with it without him getting to automatically control it. I don’t feel like this is healthy.
