Hi Everyone! My name is Kristina and I am new to EP. I have never joined a support group, nevermind an online support group. I must admit I am a little embarrassed to be joining such a site, but I don't know what else to do or where else to turn. I am a 31 y/o intelligent woman, but I can't seem to get a leg up (no pun intended). I am trying my absolute best to be indepent, but it has proven difficult. Furthermore, my situation situation is worsened by not having a car or a job. I have applied for jobs, but to no avail. Its an endless cycle...I can't get a car without a job and can't get a job without a car. I have asked VR for help, but no luck there either.

I am not looking for a handout, I'm looking for a hand up.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

not off hand the system has changed so much the last 10 to 15 years

and VR seems to have little interest in helping most people

I'm here for you my friend, i can relate to the leg up part. I have the same condition. If you want to talk i'm always here.
