Comment: Watching it pass me by...

(See in situ)

Watching it pass me by...

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. All my life I've had "jobs" but never a "career". I have no income, no job, no opportunities for even a part-time job. My savings is now gone after having tried to hold on long enough to find something, but the clock ran out...Got no insurance, spouse has serious health issues so I've got mountains of medial bills. In school full-time now in hopes of a career at the last place to work in my area. Can't sell the house and move because the real estate market is flat...besides, there are no jobs out there even if I could move...I've looked for 2 years straight and have a pile of "Dear John" letters to show for it.
After discovering Ron in 2007, the DP and the depth of the Rabbit Hole we're all in, I became pretty depressed for about 5 or 6 months. My sadness gradually turned to, I'm just angry at most things most of the government, corporate greed, at the general public for being so willfully ignorant, at local government, at the banks, at the medical system...pretty much everything.
If I could go back and do some things over, I certainly would! There are other things I'd do again and never think twice about it!
This thread topic reminds me of the "Am I a P.O.C.?" thread on here the other day...I found it depressing. I hope all of you are doing better things with your lives than I have with mine.
