Today is a bad day, I actually feel like chocolate, but I thought that if I sit here for 10 minutes and write my thoughts maybe the need will go away. I have been out of work for three months, finding work does not get any easier and it is even more harder when I keep getting phones calls from my utilities to pay a bill, when I have already discussed with them the prospect of a payment plan so I don't get late fees and they know where I am coming from. But you spend half an hour on the phone arranging this and then you get a text message to say the bill is over due, and when you ring them up, they have no records of you having rung them in the first place to make the arrangement. It is very frustrating.

Anyway I am glad that I have a website that I get vent in that way I stay out of the kitchen and you cannot eat while your fingers are busy on the keyboard.

My daughter is also having a hard time trying to find a position that will suite her qualifications, she is a child care worker and having a hard time with these centres that put people in charge that have no idea what they are doing, she has been waiting two weeks for a weeks pay, and every time she rings them they say they have to wait to get it authorised, that is a load of crap if ever I heard it. They should have paid her for the week she worked not forget and maker her wait for it.

Anyway I guess that is my venting done for today, no food and spark points as a reward who could ask for anything more.

    Chrissie have you thought about doing volunteer work to get your foot in the door. Put your name down with an agency if possible and also maybe get a government funded course through centrelink to get some different skills. You probably have done all of these things but I thought I would share what has helped me in the past.
It is good to vent here as depression is a horrid illness. Hugs and praying you find something soon.

    Thanks everyone for your very kind and motivational words, after writing this blog I got two phones for interviews one is tomorrow and I am not sure when the other one will be, my job service provider sent off my resume, so I just have to wait for that one. But I have an INTERVIEW tomorrow at a government agency that prepares passports, something different but I can do it. YEAH

    Hope you feel better now. Staying at home is not easy. I can relate to this. I have been out of work for 11 months now. Having a baby was definitely not a great move for my career. Somehow we need to stay positive. Easier said than done, i know. I also know that it can't last forever. I am sure that we will have a party on our street soon! emoticon
