Since the new website launch this is the first time I've used it as I felt abit overwhelmed by the new look. Anyway here I am and I hope to get used to it.
I really need to talk. I've been made redundant(my second week unemployed)and I am looking for work but what's out there seems to be more on the social work/care work which I did touch on in my old job but never got too involved in it as there were other advisers around whose specialism was to work with those hard to reach young people.
Anyway, I know I have skills etc but I do lack the experience dealing with those leaving care etc and to be honest even though alot of the work seems to be in this area,I don't have the energy for this demanding type of work. I'm feeling down because I really need a job and feel that nowadays I'm no longer 'me' as I don't think i cope with the demands. I feel low as my friend was kindly trying to help me go for these demanding jobs as he believes in me;guess I no longer believe in myself. By the way I have RRMS where fatigue and a dodgey eye, come cognitive issues and sometimes weak leg gets to me from time to time which is why initially I thought about a job local (can't find any as they are further afield). I just feel worthless as I see everyone else motivated and with a go getting attitude. I'm just tired, on my own, bills to pay, an 11 year old and I want to work.I'm quietly living in fear as I need a job that pays a smilar amount to what I was earning before preferably and I'm worried my fear going to get the better of me.
