Desparate and at the end of my rope

Post by serhardt25 on Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:30 pm

I posted a while back and got some good support from everyone. However, life is going very bad for me at this time since I cannot find a job to save my life. Everything is going to shit including all of my relationships, health, sanity, and my security. I just got cut off from extended EUC and I really don't know what to do next. I suppose that I will return once again to being a thief to survive, but I really do not want to do that. I have literally applied to hundreds of jobs over the last few years and keep drawing blanks, but yet, I have been told that I have an outstanding resume. I just do not understand this at all!! Don't get me started about all the snide comments from other people over the last few years about my inability to obtain gainful employment. I have been called a loser, criminal, addict, white trash, and worse.
All of this has destroyed my self confidence and employers see it a mile away and I know it. I am stupid enough to keep sending out resumes and applications to no avail and I just keep digging a deep discouragement hole for myself. I would not blame my wife if she kicked me out of the house today. My being unemployed and my mood swings have been hell for her and this makes me feel very bad for her. I suppose she would be better off with someone else that can provide a good future for her. I did everything right from the getgo such as serving my country, holding meaningful employment, and earning a four year degree in three years. I guess hard work, motivation, and dedication don't count anymore in these days.
Now, I look to 2014 to being an equally bad year for me and I have lost all hope of ever getting back on my feet since I am 45 years old and I might as well retire and try to go an disability. I am only trying to reach out to someone and not be accused of being a whiner or a crybaby. I am just looking for support from someone who is understanding and most of all, non-judgmental.

I don't know where uou are in the euc extensions but there is a good chance congress will authorize a 3 month renewal.

Do not let others define you, you know you are worthwhile.
For what its worth, I am a recovering substance abuser, and all the economic crap of the last few years has not led me to return to THAT.

There are still a few of us online....many have taken to facebook, and an unemployment group on LinkedIn. It is very discouraging, but somehow we have to find a solution, most likely by creating our own.

The main thing is to not forget who you are, in this crappy environment we find ourselves in THROUGH NO FAULT OF OUR OWN! You DID do everything right. It's just that in the years leading up to the economic collapse, a group of useful idiots decided who got to stay and who didn't. That's why many (including those useful idiots) are still gainfully employed, and others aren't.

Use the beginning of 2014 as a fresh start and try to forget about what happened in the past. In the past 5 years, few companies were hiring. THIS is the bottom-line reason nobody hired you. Those other reasons were just a bunch of BS thrown at you by people who didn't fully understand your situation.

Resolve to be gainfully employed in 2014. And thank you for your service!

here's something to chew on: http://libcom.org/history/1930-1939-unemployed-workers-movement

And it is something that we all need to think strongly about reviving....otherwise the idiots who are now in charge won't listen.

Wow, it's infuriating how, at the beginning of the Great Depression, the government lied to the people, ignoring that a disaster had occurred.

The depiction of what went on during that time is eerily reminiscent of the events of today, less (at least so far) the widespread protests and riots of unemployed workers.

And they say we're not in a depression. Yeah, right!
