I’ve questioned my decision to go into this profession now more than ever. I’ve realized the decision to take the job I’m in was driven by the pressure to pay off my loans instead of doing what I love.

Agreed. Live on less than you make. Save your money. Pay off your loans. Network and get the experience you need to do what you are passionate about. And make a plan for your next move, whether it is in one year, five years, or ten years. Don’t get trapped into thinking you have to have one job forever; the golden handcuffs only get tighter as you stay longer.

I do civil defense-big law. I think I need to be more involved in helping others to find some purpose in my work.

I had a baby last year. The delivery was uncomplicated except that I had to take a Covid test when I entered the hospital facility. I was going through my medical bills and noticed that the hospital had claimed me as a Covid patient even though I was not positive. Is this considered malpractice or am I missing something? I'm wondering if the hospital reported me as a Covid patient for gov subsidy. For context, this hospital is a part of a very prominent medical network in N.Virginia.
