Not completely an investment question but I’m going to ask anyway. In 2020 my daughter got braces. Based on consultation in 2019 I was told insurance pays $1,000 and my out of pocket would be $1,600 so I set up a limited FSA (in addition to HSA) in 2020 for the $1,600. She got the braces in Oct 2020 and I paid the 1,600 out of the limited FSA. I switched jobs in Dec 2020 and my insurance ended. I selected coverage at my new employer in Jan 2021 that doesn’t include orthodontia. Cont’d

I’m close with my friends from back home but I feel like I’m the only one working hard for career growth whereas everyone else is settling down, raising families. Im not downplaying being a mother at all: I just don’t feel like I relate to them anymore and even our get togethers (currently more FaceTime and zoom calls) are hardly fun for me and no one really gets what my work entails/acknowledges my professional accomplishments. Anyone else in the same boat?
