Anonymous's next job could be in cyber (she just doesn't know it yet)

Today, my doctor told me the severe hearing damage from my car accident is permanent. I just graduated with a degree for Interpreting and Translating. FML

You know the old saying that goes something like I felt bad for the boy who had no shoes until I met another boy who had no feet? Well just to make you feel better I can tell you that I’m an Orthopedic Surgeon who had a stroke soon after I graduated. My whole right side is paralyzed. So I can never be a Surgeon. I still have to pay back my college loans. This probably should’ve been a separate FML. Those loans will never be paid back.

Agreed, I can here to say that long term impairments that impact your ability to work definitely are something that insurance should be liable for, depending on limits and whether it was your fault or their.

as most said, claim damages. That aside, you can still look into jobs translating scripts/documents and into learn sign language. It sure messed up your plans, but you can pivot and still make something much better then most people out there.

well u could learn sign language and translate that for ppl u could still b a huge help and it doesnt take away from the profession u wanted from the start. May not be wat u wanted but you will still b able to help with translating. I hope u feel better soon and that ur ear heals and that the doctor was wrong n that u will get ur hearing bak. stay strong!
