Your right Renee, I'm feeling it deep right now. Yesterday was I think the first time I went into places thinking badly, but other than that I have been real upbeat and positive. It just starts to wear on you after numerous turndowns.

I feel you. But you could look at being turned down as being one step closer to the job that will fill your needs.
We all have heard of the "Power of Positive Thinking" well the same thing holds true for the "Power of Negative Thinking."
Your results are directly connected to which therory you truly feel.
It's not enough to have the montra "I am happy, I am pretty, or I will win." going through your brain, you have to believe it and feel it in your soul.
As deep down and 100% as you are feeling the "Blues" now.

Maybe now is the time to get some special training in something. If there is a need in your area maybe you can find a way to train for that. Schools are another area where they are usually understaffed. You may find something there even if it is cafeteria or janitorial staff. When I lost my job 3 years ago, I didn't know what I was going to do and so I prayed about it alot. Next thing I know I'm back in school learning a new skill at the tender age of 49! Finances have not always been easy with my youngest in college also but with faith, you can make it. Contact your pastor. If you don't have one, find one. They are a great source of support and can help you in ways you may not realize.

I was going to go back to school, but can't stay afloat without income. and unemployment would not give me an extension. I could not see how I could go to school FT, work FT, and be the mom I want to be FT. My children come first.

You don't have to go fulltime. I started with just one class a semester. You may qualify for financial aid as well. Don't give up. Things will turn around.

Thats where the catch 22 is, for the courses to be fully paid for you have to at least 12 credit hours, so if I go part time I have to pay which I can't afford unless I get a decent job and I can't get a decent job unless I go back to school. No matter what I have to work full time to make enough to live on. Part time jobs don't pay enough. But at this point I'm going to take any job I can get, Full time, part time, temporary it doesn't matter right now I need $$$$$
