We have all hit that point where nothing, I mean nothing, was going or coming our way. One day, one positive step forward can make all the difference in the world. Try and hang on, maybe do some volunteer work. You never know when you might meet someone that can open career doors for you. The job situation in my state is bad as well. I am grateful everyday I get up that I have a job. But I have been unemployed before and remember how frustrating it is to look, have 2 or 3 interviews and nothing. I recall mailing out 38 resumes in one week and no calls. Talk about feeling beaten down, but eventually the phone did ring and got a job. Stay positive and do not give up. You have plenty of time to settle down and raise that family. I did not have my first child until age 32. I was really glad I waited because by then I had done all the fun single stuff and was into being a good parent and enjoying my marriage. Things happen when they are suppose to, have faith. I hope tomorrow finds you feeling better, step back and look at things from a different point of view...........you just might find what you are looking for.
