Thank you! ^.^
And it's alright; most people don't. Because of CPS work, Social Workers aren't particularly popular. I expect we need a reality TV show or something.
as much as the generalities suck for workers like you though, i'd imagine the reality has to suck for the too. one goes in as this hopeful nerdfighter, with goals of helping people and decreasing worldsuck, and it puts them at odds with half the people they're trying to help: fighting for the well being of children puts them at odds with parents, fighting for women, at odds with sig others, etc.
anyway, thanks for being awesome.
I like "nerdentials" as a new term. Also, I wrote a novel just a little above yours, as I have the same issue.
Oh my goodness, "technophilic luddite"! Yes, that is me as well! Some strange combination of adore and abhor that fits just right into the brain place.
