I've been applying for work.

I took a position last Wednesday as a courier; I'm driving around a hundred miles a day, lifting boxes into the car, carrying them up stairs to customers.

I hate it.

I'm sitting here crying as I write this because I can't stand the thought of doing it again tomorrow, and the tomorrow after that.

I'm usually so strong, and able to face difficulty with calmness, but can't face this.

    @arnettelee I'm trying not to give up.

I can't face doing this courier job -- physically, I'm barely able to lift the boxes they're having me pick up and deliver. I cannot afford to hurt myself because currently I have no health care coverage. The 100+miles a day is hard on the car too.

I just want an office job again. I can do pretty much anything in an office. I just don't know what to do anymore besides "don't give up."
