I Want To Work!

I have been laid off 3 times in my life now.

In May 2010, I was working in job of my life. It was perfect in so many ways. I was working as a consultant to the federal government. But, due to all of the financial issues, the company I worked for no longer had the work-load to keep me on. I searched and searched for work. Answers I got from employers ranged from being over-qualified to they could not afford me. I tried everything from working retail to call centers to receptionist positions to things in my field of expertise. I also contacted everyone I had worked with for assistance - you know, the "networking" thing.

And yes, I was one of those on unemployment compensation.

I finally got a job in October of 2011 with a municipality in SE Florida. With the little money I had I packed up my car with what I could fit in it and moved down there. It was the only job I could find. It was part-time and had no benefits. But it was work.

In March of 2012, I suddenly started having stomach pain and a high fever. I ended up in the hospital and had emergency surgery removing a portion of my colon. I stopped breathing while on the operating table, but, of course, they revived me.

I was finally released from the hospital 2.5 weeks after my surgery and was released to go back to work a week later (though I still had open wounds and a colostomy.) The Friday before I was to start work on Monday, my boss called me into his office and laid me off.

Since April, I have had to move in with my mother, have another major surgery to reverse the initial surgery, and have been desperately searching for work - with the same results as before. Yes, I have had a few interviews, but nothing close by, and nothing that will really support an individual.

Today I saw my counselor. His comment to me was that he has never seen anyone so dedicated to getting a job as I have been and he just doesn't have any more suggestions for me. When I got home from the counselor, I received a letter stating that all of my unemployment has run out. I have no clue what I am going to do going forward. I really feel like I am at the end of my rope and I cannot even tie a not to hold on....

I just don't know what to do any more. I wonder if this is the end. I feel like my life is over.
