The unemployment rate around my area is about 10%. I've been applying in person, online, and interviewing like crazy. But still unemployed with no promise of work currently. Moving will be very difficult because I'm very broke.
I have worked as a bookkeeper, a web consultant, web freelance, and an event coordinator. I have been applying at fast food restaurants lately and still have not landed a job.
I have entertained a dangerous thought of leaving in the middle of the night to a city with better economy, just to stay at a shelter while finding work.
I am in debt and seriously need to start paying, but I have no income.
How do I keep my nerves in check (highly stressed out)?
If I'm in debt, does leaving (in a leap of faith) to a better city sound reasonable to you?
How to explain to "family" that I cannot find a job (that love does not pay the bills)?
My daughter is in college, so I have no kids to worry about (other than my daughter's remainder expenses after fafsa).
THanks in advance
