Bootstrap Blindman

Pulling myself up after being unemployed for a year is going to take some time.    The toll has been horrendous.    The job market in and around Seattle remains a disaster.   Personally I’ve lost my confidence I’ve lost my belief and understanding in my abilities.  I’m trying to pull myself up and out of this mess.    The decisions I’ve had to make and the sacrifices I’ve had to make are unbelievable.   It’s a terrible thing not being able to pay your bills or deciding what bills to pay with the money you have left.  Or what do you sell to pay the bills.

For me the surprising thing was living in the US giving up my healthcare in favor of my cellular serine.   I rationalized that if an employer can’t get in touch with you then how do you get a job.

I’ve never lived through an economy that was / is so bad.  I’ve never had to deal with a job search that demanded precision fits.   Disabilities do not help when employers are looking for people who fit exactly.  No one is willing to have a conversation about accommodation or variances between what you can do and offer and what they are asking for.

I don’t know how I’m going to recover a credit rating again.   I don’t know how I’m going to dig myself out of the financial disaster.    One day at a time One step at a time.   Retirement.   Huh!!   What’s That….
