Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
As of last Thursday I am working from home and getting paid. Work for one of the top 4 banks in Canada. Luckily my job is back end and they don't need me in the office.

I am concerned though on how things are going in the office. I can't say much more than that, but it sickens me.

 Quoting: JJ Johns


I hope you find them.

You stay safe, too. I really want to go outside for a walk, but I think it might stress me out more when I don't see anyone and hardly any traffic. lol

That blue essential oil when rubbed on the back of the head has been good on headaches!
 Quoting: TP Broker


What oil is that?

I put this headache mix on my forehead, between my eyes, on my temples, back of my neck, but it didn't help.

I've been working from home for at least the last 6 years. Wouldn't have it any other way. I've basically been "sheltered in place" that whole time.

Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
62 years old with high blood pressure and pulmonary issues so I am in a high risk group.

Laid off from my last job due to a merger about ten months ago. At my age, no way I could get hired again for a meaningful job so I started driving Lyft and Uber.

Of course I can't do that now, so I have zero income and have watched my 401(k) decrease in value by about 20%

Thank God I'm retired. I just work my butt off at home now. My wife is still working, and goes into town every day. Her hours have gone up due to other absences.

I work from home anyways but my sales have slowed to almost nothing this week. I don’t expect that to change for the foreseeable future either. Thank God I saved my money for the majority of my life, because I’m going to need it.

I've been given an option to do so, but I'm considering going in despite all of the warnings of staying in.

I'm just your obedient drone.

In all honesty, work gives me a sense of purpose that shapes my identity.

But if it's mandatory then sure.

I have been working from home, self-employed since 2002.

I am having a record month, sales-wise.

Don't hate me, bro.

Despite all the red shit and sarcastic idiot-trolling, I do more good in one day than most do in a month.

It helps me maintain balance.

Cheers.

Paid...and voluntary work here.
Soap box time.....and reminder.

IF YOU HAVE A FEVER DO NOT LOWER IT WITH MEDS.... A FEVER IS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM RESPONSE TO A PATHOGEN (VIRUS, BACTERIA ETC..) IT MEANS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS WORKING PROPERLY....DONT USE DRUGS TO LOWER YOUR TEMP.


Stick with the GP`s advice..... That being said...

====================================================​====
do not take NONSTEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMATORY DRUGS.

ASPRIN, IBUPROFEN, NAPROXEN, DICLOFENAC, ADVIL, MOTRIN
====================================================​====

These have proven to Increase the risk of complications when there is a fever or infection (bacterial)
