When I was laid off back in May I decided my health was giving me too much trouble to handle a job. My doctor agreed with me.
I have a small savings and receiving UI as long I am applying for any type of job. I have had no calls in response to my job hunting until yesterday. I've been called to interview to teach at a pre-K in a city an hour away.
I don't know if I can handle 3 & 4 yr olds. Let along with the stress of teaching too. When I was healthy I tried to do that and lasted 2 weeks.
I'm waiting for my LTD to get approved and I'm applying for food stamps and medicare. I will lose my chances at them if I go to work, can't handle it and have to quit.
The fear of no money to pay my bills is really kicking in as the savings disappear.
Plus I'm going stir crazy!
