I did a really stupid thing, I made a big error on filing this week's umemployment claim that might effect my unemployment benefits and I could lose my unemployment all together. My internet connection was acting up yesterday and I got kicked off the unemployment website while I was processing this week's claim, I wasn't able to check my answers until I got back on the site (by that time it was too late) and I answered the area asking if I had "looked for work this week" with a NO instead of a Yes. Now I won't get any $$ this week. I've tried to call and ofcourse I can't speak to a live person. I don't know what to do.
The fog isn't helping either. When I got booted off the site I paniced.. and for good reason. Now I'm really freaking out!! I know my husband is going to be REALLY upset. But believe me, I'm more upset with myself than he could ever be with me.
If I can't even click on the right spot on the website how the heck am I ever going to have my head together enough to find a job again. I'm never going to be able to do the work I used to do because of my fibro. I used to work about 50-70 hours a week and believe me, I don't ever want to do THAT again. I just want a part time office job, but there's nothing out there like that in this lousy economy.
I've also thought about trying to get SSDI, but I can't apply for that if I'm on unemployment.
I'm so mad at myself right now, I can feel an anxiety attack coming on and that will throw me into a flare (like it always does).
I'm usually a really positive person, but this dumb move is really killing me. I'm incredibly bummed out and can't think straight.
Thanks for listening (reading).
