Well, I went back to work six weeks post opp, only to get laid off in three weeks, after working there for 9 years. What does that say? I am 51, widowed, I walk funny, not that attracive, a little over weight, so what are the optiions I will find another job? I can get unemployment for sometime but what happens then? I know some of you have been here. What do I need to do. Some people I have talke to say don't do anything for six months and see if the walking gets better so getting employed will have higher pontinial. But I don't think that would be smart because you never get a job when you really need one so I don't want to wait for unemployment to run out, but I do hope I will walk better in the next six months but that is not certain. I am just done, so done, but life goes on no matter how much you don't want it too. I can't quit because I am still breathing but what do have to offer? I think I have thing to offer but how do I convey that to people who hire people. I have no insurance, not much money, but I can still help, This is where I am now? What can I do, what will they let me do? I am so confused, so tired, so done.
