My job, My Job !! Oh man...

So as shown in previous blogs ive been working graveyards for many years no problem....yet the past few months ive been doing just terrible sleeping wise....last Friday the whole day i slept 45 minutes. Im very exhausted, yet i close my eyes and nothing happens.

The cooler is on, making my pad very comfortable, the place is dark to prevent any light from coming in, so thats not a problem.

So i don't sleep during the day, and im walking around and doing my errands like a zombie, what do you suppose happens at night ? Yep, im even more exhausted, my body aches, i sit down, and i fall asleep. I found a bad routine on doing this, and i got in trouble for it-and i have every right to be in trouble, no complaints there-yet it was the last straw for my boss and i was fired.

So now your thinking, no big deal-get another job....a day job. Easier said than done my friend, the town im in is very very small, you blink and you miss it. Summer is here and the college kids are out leaving full time jobs very minimal. Im beyond stressed, im scared of when rent comes and the bills for power/internet ect come in.

Im just pulling my hair out at the situation, am i looking for answers, not really just venting to let some stress out "err".

Is there really online jobs out there, or is it all just scams ?

I know what you're going through, to a certain extent. I worked for one of those large companies that only know you by a number and I pretty much had to quit or be fired. So I quit and started to work for myself. Being self-employed hasn't been easy; I wiped out my 401 and am now working on cleaning out my ira, but I do see light at the end of the tunnel. Plus I know that ultimately, what I get out is what I put in. Maybe this'll turn out to be the best thing for you.
Not the greatest advice, I know, but hang in there man. In the meantime, I'd check into unemployment benefits while you're in between jobs. I don't know if you can collect, but it's worth looking into. Oh, and don't pawn any of your shit if you get desperate. I've pawned stuff in hard times and always regretted it. Better to go give blood than pawn my beat up Ice-T cd.
Good luck.

Have you checked the classifieds? There are a few openings that might fit your needs, and even day shifts.

Best of luck in your search. I know what it's like to live in the little "sneeze" towns as I call it (you sneeze while driving through and you miss it).

Keep us posted on your search!

Thanx everyone the postings of my search will definetly be up to date in my blogs.

oldschool i actually been that desperate before...and now i look back and im like "Oh man!" yet you live and you learn huh.

Since im typing on the subject, i went down to the D.E.S. today to find some was pretty sad actually. Im not a truck driver...i dont carry a Class B drivers license, and im not a CNA (Congrats to all who do this) i smiled at the front desk lady and walked back outside to the 110* of Arizona weather...oh the joys of the summer heat lol.

Tomorrow hopefully it will cool down a bit and i was thinking of going to the newspaper shop to see if they need any full time delivery people. ( I did this in my youth on my bike for about a year, and it was a challenge but i proved to the surrounding community that i was a ontime trusting kid )

contact temp agencies. I've had companies hire when you have temped for them a while.

Be positive and persistant.The best advice I ever got was to keep talking with the utility companies , landlords etc if you fall behind with paymments.They are much more obliging with people who keep them informed and most have special payment schemes.Its hard but most people have been there.

Oh yes and remember to get out of the house at least once a day.It makes a big difference.

Keep you head held high and keep looking. We have all been ther at one time or another. This might have been a blessing in disguise. T
