I lost my job at the thrift store and am not working now as I am too depressed to do anything. I am living in Minnesota now and working at a thrift store. I need to find other work as this is only part time. I enjoyed helping with my great nieces for the time I had with them. I will only go back to nannying if I find a perfect job for me. I worked as a nanny for over twenty years. My niece lives in the Metairie part of New Orleans. My baby work ended sooner than planned, and I am helping with the babies grandmother, my sister Mary,who has memory loss. I was born in Los Angeles and left there when I was 16 years old. I have lived in Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Maryland, Virgina, DC, Minnesota and Puerto Rico. I was one of twelve children from the same two parents, all single births. There are ten of us still alive now. I have more family than I like to count! One more sister died, so their are only nine of us left.

I am now suffering from mental health issues that make healthy eating harder than before!

    Stick to it! You got this!

    I saw your post about more meds. It took the doctor's a couple of years to figure out the exact doses and what kind of anxiety and depression meds I needed. I feel like I have more anxiety than depression at this point. When things aren't going like you would like them it is easy to be very depressed. When I didn't like my job I was more depressed than usual. I hope you feel better soon.
