I wish I wanted kids. I wouldn’t feel so trapped by my own decision. While it’s a relief letting to of someone who wants kids, it doesn’t get easier for me.

I never ever wanted kids. Broke up with a man who did, 10 years later met a man who didn’t. Best decision of my life

I left gecio and went to liberty mutual, but I’m not liking their way of evaluating claims. They rely heavily on Mitchell which is a pricing tool and their reductions are excessive.

I used to be a lit adjuster at gecio and now only handling soft tissue claims, which is extremely boring. I’m gonna be going through liberty’s litigation training at the end of June.

Hello there! I currently work in billing at a medical office.

I tried working as a tech at an Applied Behavior Analysis clinic but it wasn’t a good fit. I’m hesitant to try case management or social work because I worry I won’t like it but I want to use my degree in Psychology. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
