I couldn't decide if I should even post this... but here it is anyway.
After I spent the last of all the money in my name on this month's COBRA (health insurance) payment I decided I needed to do something. Just anything from going completely under. I feel like I am currently headed for disaster with no job or relief in sight. I've been applying to several jobs, which has resulted in a few interviews that went well, and even a couple of second interviews that went really well. Then each time I have gotten a call saying we have had a <catastrophe> and this will delay our decision <some number of> weeks. AUGH. So close... yet so far...
Since finding an engineering job hasn't been going exactly as planned, I registered with some temp agencies that I used to work for when I was in college. The interview went great and they immediately booked an assignment for me. Then today I found out through some mixups that the week long assignment starting Monday was given to someone else.
The news was devastating. I was already counting on that paycheck to help me keep my head above water just a little longer...
Talk about feeling worthless. The only thing I have left in my name is debt. :(
With no income in sight and a baby on the way, I started to look into our state healthcare options. I found out that because I have been without any income for so long that I don't actually qualify for anything besides medical assistance. I've never used any kind of public assistance and have always taken pride my ability to weather any situation with enough hard work.
*sigh* now I just need to find that work. I never imagined using this blog to chronicle a backwards descent.
