Is my salary holding me hostage?

I have a job. It's a pretty good job and I've been around here for a while. Some recent changes (some at work, some in life) and some things that haven't panned out like I envisioned have me looking around. But in my brief survey of the landscape, I think I may be stuck here because the salary ranges in my area for the skills I have are around 30% lower than the ~$85k I make in my current situation, which would simply not work for my budget. What fields or opportunities might I be overlooking? [more inside]

Advice/Thoughts for a recent college grad who doesn't like his job.

I just graduated college and have been working full-time for one month. I really don't like my job because I think I ended up in the wrong industry/type of business.

Botox injections and neutropenia

Are there risks in having botox injections for a neutropenia sufferer? A relation of mine is determined to have botox injections to get rid of wrinkles, however, they suffer badly from cyclic neutropenia which means that their immune system is often weak and have white blood cell issues and consequently they get infections frequently. I am aware that botox is botulinum toxin and I have kept trying to persuade her to see her doctor before having botox injections, to check whether they are safe for her in light of neutropenia. She is desperate to go ahead with this and it is hard to persuade her to get medical advice on this. From a layman's perspective, I am concerned that this may be dangerous for her. Does anybody with medical knowledge, perhaps haematology, know if this botox is safe for neutropenia sufferers? Many thanks!

Should I be doing anything besides wringing my hands

So, you might remember my question 'help me navigate and not screw up this budding online relationship', in which I managed to self sabotage a good thing w/ a guy who was really into me by dragging on a conversation online for 4 months and screwing up 3 attempts to meet. Well, I re-read our entire conversation and it seems he had subtly made attempts to hang out 2 additional times! (I don't know what's wrong with me and why I was being so daft, scared or evasive). I took you all's advice and apologized for flaking on our first official/somewhat organized meetup in which my rules about being feminine/cautious caused me to act like an idiot. His specific response to my date suggestions was ... [more inside]

Being Mentored by Boss and Colleagues are Feeling Insecure!

How should I handle this tricky situation at work? My boss has taken me under her wing to guide me on the path of success. I feel she did this because I was open to her assistance. We have now developed a friendly "quid pro quo" type of agreement. She assists me by sharing her expertise on certain work-related items and vice-versa. I will in turn share with my colleagues when I feel capable of doing so. Some of my closest colleagues are feeling insecure about my friendly and close relationship with our boss. It seems like they feel threatened by it...like they think I am privy to all this "important information" that I won't share with them. [more inside]
