Terrie Posted October 14, 2003 Share Posted October 14, 2003 I don't really feel like posting anymore. I don't know that I have much to contribute, am EXTREMELY depressed and, well, kind of hanging in limbo. I apparently didn't get the job I interviewed for several weeks ago - don't know if that's a good thing or not. I feel guilty for even posting this because so many of you are fighting for your lives or your loved ones lives, but I just don't know where to go from here. Financially we are sinking fast. I haven't worked outside the home for 12 years and was in the middle of a certification class when the diagnosis came. I was able to finish school this summer, but have only made a few half-hearted attempts at job-hunting. I don't even know if I could work - I mean there are days when I think I could, but there are days when just keeping up with my family takes all my energy. Our 12 year old cars are dying, my husband has an absessed tooth and we can't afford the dentist. Sorry to vent, but life right now seems a bit overwhelming. I have no experience in my field of study, so no one will hire me - but how in the HE*L am I supposed to get experience without a chance?? My husband wants to know why I push my kids so hard with school and college - I told him I didn't want them to be doing this in 25 years. I think I hurt his feelings, but I can't help it. I have to go as I am crying again............ God bless you all - Terrie Just a P.S. I went to the local college yesterday for a volunteer tailgate party - you know I wanted to give back to the community that helped us soooo much. Decided to join a local organization - have been pondering this for weeks - who to help, etc., since I wasn't working and everything. Well, the organization has dues - I can't afford. Geeze, I can't even afford to volunteer - this IS sad! (I know there are other ways to help, just not quite as close to home and I don't know if my car will get me there!) he he Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
