It's not important how long I'm been unemployed. It's been a long time. In the last couple of years I've been told more and more often that employers want nothing to do with me, my skills are not up to scratch and my work experience is a liability. But the biggest problem I face is I'm not allowed to drive for medical reasons. So most of the jobs that I could potentially do are ruled out. Government agencies here in New Zealand just throw their hands in the air and say to me, "There's nothing more we can do. Just keep looking and don't give up." As every day passes I feel more and more useless and my brain is turning to much from the lack of stimulation. But what is really annoying me is the number of people who keep offering me "investment opportunities" even though I have no money, refer me to webinars that are nothing more than internet versions of multi-level marketing scams and people who think that things will get better if I am positive. Sorry, but I'm way past the point of believing all that new age crap about how being positive will solve my unemployment problem.
