2022.01.18 22:54 CrypticRowlet About to graduate with a degree in general biology, but now I’m chronically ill and no longer have an interest in graduate school. Am I screwed? What options are available to me?
I originally was going for the bachelor’s degree in general biology because I wasn’t sure exactly what career I wanted, but thought that the general degree would keep my options open. Also, I was really interested in biology and knew I wanted to have a job involving field work/conservation/wildlife biology. However, most of the entry level jobs require years of prior experience and a master’s degree, both of which I don’t have.
Also, I’ve developed several chronic illnesses and daily pain that have still not been diagnosed over the last 4 years and feel like I can’t do any field work at this point. I’ve also been dealing with a great deal of depression, brain fog, fatigue, extreme social-anxiety, and fractured sleep. I feel like doing nothing except figuring out what’s wrong with my body and managing my pain. Life right now is just school, stress, and doctor’s appointments.
I also thought about going to graduate school to open up my job prospects a bit more, but I have no idea what kind of program to pursue. I don’t want have a career in research - I have had a few semesters of research experience as an undergrad at a community college and found out that it’s not really for me. I’m also feeling so burned out with studying and I’m unsure if I really want to go to grad school.
Right as I was about to start volunteering in labs at my college, the pandemic hit, and school was moved to online for a long time. So, I have no lab experience, and my school is back online again for the semester because of the Omicron variant, and so I can’t find any labs that will take me in.
I feel like I really messed up. I only have had 1 internship over a summer at a museum, a couple semesters of research experience, no volunteer experience, and absolutely no work experience aside from being a postmates delivery driver. Plus, I’ve forgotten almost all of my statistics and coding since I’ve been busy with other classes over the semesters. I don’t have any skills and can’t provide much value.
The worst part is that I just turned 30 and am about to graduate with a degree in general biology that doesn’t really have any good job prospects unless I go to grad school…but I have no idea which grad school path to take. I don’t know what I want to do with my life, and I’m really worried that my health will continue to get worse (feeling worse with every month that passes), which will definitely impact the kind of work I’m able to do.
I definitely should have thought through this more. I feel so stupid (probably because I genuinely am). I get the feeling I’m just going to be sick and broke with a useless degree.
Can I use the general biology degree for careers that are unrelated to the subject? What other options are available? What about jobs from home, since I am feeling sick all the time? If possible I’d like a job where I don’t have to talk to people very much since I have social anxiety.
I’m feeling so lost and don’t know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

2022.01.18 22:54 sandysanBAR Gas canister purge valve problems (seeking advice)
2005 trailblazer ext, 230k, 4.6 inline 6 automatic transmission.
1) got CEL and used scanner (AutoZone) 2) suggested carbon canister purge valve 3) had my mechanic swap one out 4) CEL returned AND after filling the tank up ( obviously needed to remove cap) and the car took forever to turn over. Once it started, it was a little rough. If you stopped the engine it would start perfectly every time afterward Happens everytime gas is added, never in betweeen 5) brought it back and he swapped in a new purge valve 6) CEL goes away 7) Cel comes back with same fill up symptoms.
The canister is unlikely to go "bad" what are the chances I got two bad purge valves in a row? This seems plausible based on youtube videos or is it something else?
I replaced the gas cap as well as it was cheap and easy but it was an apparent OEM job that other people have had problems saying it does not fit properly on a 2005 trailblazer.
Kind of flummoxed. Really like the car even with all it's idiosyncracies. If I "topped" up with gas could gas collect in the cahecoal canister and lead to these problems?
Thanks in advance.

2022.01.18 22:54 lovelyladyseeking Police calling me?
I am in on a diversion for 5 years for buying just 6 of the pain meds I need for my back. I have this same script and my doctor let me go and I was in agony. This was in 2020. i did it once got caught and went to court. im on a diversion and moved to a new town in the same state. i got a voicemail today from a officer from the police department in town i used to live in. the same town i started my probation in and was jailed in. i am not this person. never been in trouble in my life. quite simply, i have been in chronic pain for 12 years and always did my meds correctly and trusted the system and my doctors. always. until i lost my doctor during the pandemic and was desperate for relief. i have done everything right and got permission to move my probation. i have been in my new town for 3 months. i check into my appointments every month. im just trying to figure out why a police officer at the police department from my old town is calling me? any ideas? my case has been long over and i havent been there in months. he told me to call dispatch. whats up? it worries cause i dont know why
