emoticon PAG2809 and emoticon to SparkPeople's DwD Team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle. emoticon emoticon emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

You're never alone. Doesn't that sound like a Boris Karloff or Lon Chaney, Jr., line? It's true, though, be it blessing or curse. (Personally, I think it alternates.)

Laurie, thank you for the encouragement, the reminder that life isn't static (a site that doesn't have a job listed today may have one tomorrow or next week), and for the empathy. It makes a huge difference!

I noticed messages from you to some of the others, Ann, and think it's nice that you responded before you even got around to announcing yourself.

Congratulations on a medication that makes a difference. It seems that meds generally don't make everything wonderful, but getting enough of a boost to carry on is an amazing step.

I wish I had a wonderful suggestion for finding work or building your own projects. The only thing I know about daily life in Fredericksburg is MWC. Is that a possibility? Nothing to lose by checking current openings from time to time and submitting a resume.

Since I've started responding to other people's messages introducing themselves, I really should do my own.

I'm Ann. I'm 52 and live in Fredericksburg, VA. Perimenopause got really bad in 2009, I lost my full-time job in 2010... and things have sort of gone from there. I moved back to the east coast (grew up in PA, moved to Seattle in 1994, lived mostly there with some time in other places) in 2012 to try to get back to work since I was out of options. My family (mostly my sisters) has been helping me since then and I've got food assistance. I am officially self-employed doing a few different things, but I'm not making a living yet. Further complicating my efforts to get back on my feet... I've got arthritis in both knees though its much worse in my right knee. Eventually I'll need a knee replacement but for now its painful, it limits my mobility, and it makes it hard to find a part-time job I can handle (mostly retail available in my area). At least as of this year I've got health insurance, so I've been on Buproprion HCL (Wellbutrin) since January. I'm doing a lot better, but this is still all very hard.
