I've worked since I was 15 years old and I'm now 52 and can't find a job. I quit my job with a local county when we moved 75 miles away. I'm thinking about going back to restaurant work, which I did for 12 years before I went into clerical and administrative work - but I am not certain that at my age and being 50 pounds overweight I can deal with the fast-pace of a restaurant job. I used to love waitressing - but that was 25-30 years ago and it was a different world and I was also different. Anyway - I'm now a displaced homemaker - staying home while my husband works. The bills are getting paid but there are times we are completely broke. I've only been married for 4 years and 3 months so I'm not on completely solid ground with this relationship. I'm bored and depressed. I do see a therapist and that helps some. However, being fairly new to this area, I only have one friend here and no family even in the State.Answer Question

I'm so sorry you feel so displaced. Why don't you try working in a medical office. You won't be on your feet as much as waitressing. I hope you won't find this insulting, but since you have worked always, technicallyyou are not a displaced homemaker. Technically a displaced homemaker is someone who expected to be at home while hubby worked but was unexpectedly thrown into the workforce through hubby's unemployment, death or divorce. Yes it is a real term and the government gives money to places that train "displaced homemakers" for job skills. Fortunately you have job skills and a work history. Unfortunately the economy sucks right now!
