Hi everyone. I am new here. I have been looking for a job for 8 1/2 months. First time in my life I have ever had this difficulty in landing a job. I am a single mom who is solely supporting her two kids. The holidays are around the corner and I cant even know if I can keep a roof over us muchless by gifts. My Wonderful fiancee lives with us now but he lost his job too. Now the only income we have is my unemployment and his minor military disability. Mine will run out in just 3 1/2 months and my savings is almost gone. I am trying hard to keep a positive attitude but five minutes alone and I am crying like a baby. I have sent out over 180 resumes, gone on only 6 interviews, and not one offer. It is so bad that I havent been able to even see my son march in the half time show without volunteering in the concession stand because $7 to get into the game is $7 we could use to feed the boys. I feel like I am sucking the wind out of everyone. Kevin is so wonderful but I am always so stressed out. I want my life back so badly. I have not been without a job for more than 3 months since I was 14. I have been solely supporting myself since 17. I have been the sole financial support of my kids. I feel so helpless and angry all the time.
