Does anyone find this job situation scary? Or am I alone? I have panic attacks every morning. My family just thinks I am crazy and you just have to wait this out since the situation is that everyone is out of work. Another thing - how many on this board who hare unemployed are single or alone? I wonder if it is easier or harder.

You are not alone I actually feel relieved a little bit to see your post. My boyfriend and I don't have family we can rely on and I am unemployed so I was thinking the exact same thing as you.We'll make it through but you are right. It is pretty scary

    You're definitely not alone especially regarding the panic attacks - it can be totally paralysing.......... As far as being alone - I think it has it's good points and it's bad points - in one respect you have no "support" network, but by the same token you only have to worry about yourself, which can be a relief.

    Ditto! I think I am going to lose my mind. There are so many scam jobs, marketing, and sales jobs down here in South Florida.......not enough legitimate jobs....and I am single and alone going through this mess...don't have any family either.......this is a real hell and nightmare....a nightmare that seems to have no end......I apply for jobs and the co's either lose your paperwork......promise to you and don't....I have been out of work for 10 months now and it is really beginning to take its toll on me and I am not being picky in the work I try to get either......some jobs I have actually gotten end up being performance types of jobs where there is no decent guaranteed base salary.....ends up being a draw which is not a good situation at all.....and all of these sales "rooms" are for the birds.....you can't force people to buy something that they are not going to spend money for NOT IN THIS ECONOMY......most of the private colleges and schools are also sales oriented jobs with quotas........you notice that these schools are constantly posting because they have revolving doors where retention is very low.......can't take this situation much longer......not strong enough to take this.

    It makes me feel better that you all replied to my post. I have no retirement to speak about since I stayed at home with my sick son for many years. Then I returned to school and finished in 2007 only to be met by family illness, deaths, and the economic crisis. I think all of us regulars should brainstorm a way to get a business going using all of our talents across country. Let's post some ideas to see what we can come up with. I am in Linguistics and education. Totally believe in ed reform. However, I thought of some things that we might be able to get off the ground. Vending machines, hot dog stand. A community where we can all contribute our talents and survive. My family thinks I am addicted to CL, but at least it gets my mind off of looking for jobs that are not really there. Can we get together and BRAINSTORM?

    as far as brainstorm it's only been three weeks for me but worst time. just about zero savings due to expences in the 4th quarter. made $28.85 yesterday with scrap recycling. have signed up at pinecone, surveysavvy and a few others to take $2.00 - $5.00 online surveys. should make $40.00 tomorrow picking fruit trees in the local hood - going to be bad as rain and lower temps expected. that is the few ideas i've had in the last few weeks.

    Everyone seems to hide this. I have no family left, except the ones living in our house. An aunt 1600 miles away who could care less. I know shelters are thriving, but there must be a way to combine all unemployed and conserve resources. Where do you live?

    all too familiar I'm 52...well-educated and an artist. But I've always been self employed, which makes it even harder to apply for jobs now that my business isn't supporting me. I don't qualify for unemployment. The only handout I get is $200 in foodstamps every month. I'm alone, just moved my elderly mother to Portland so I can keep an eye on her, but that adds more stress, too. I'm all too familiar with the early morning panic attacks.... As good as I am at networking and researching, I can't get any financial advise. I finally ed a bankruptcy attorney yesterday, and I'm about to stop paying all my credit card bills for the first time in my life. gulp. I just hope I can keep out of foreclosure. I read the New York Times everyday, and everyday there's another front page story of people like me...like us.

    I'm in a similar situation as you are. I just took care of my mother for 3 years. She refused to move closer. Did business around my son for years in direct sales to take care of him while he was too sick to go to daycare. While he was in school, I went to school and finished in 2007. Maybe your mother has a decent income and you can get paid to take care of her. I know that is totally legal. I just finished that chore, but I had to hire others because she was 4 hours away. I could only handle finances and other details for her. Traveled to her house every other week to check on it and on her in the assisted/indpendent living facility. Let's brainstorm to see what we can do.

    all too familiar I'm going to check in with the social worker at one of the Senior Center nearby to find out about resources for caregivers. Thanks for reminding me...I've noticed postings for classes for family members who are caregivers, but I've been so consumed with my own financial problems that I haven't had the time to follow up on it. I'm also looking into getting a teaching certificate for middle or high school. I'd love to be a school counselor, but need to seek advising on that, too.

    I would LOVE to change careers and take a culinary arts course....... not sure if the ESD would be willing to retrain me in that field though - sigh Will probably end up doing doing boring courses on more of the same feld I'm in already - like Excel or accounting s/ware or medical billing/coding (which could prove useful though deadly BORING) ugh

    I don't know if you could qualify for free retraining, but it might be worth a try. If you like culinary arts, you could probably do that on your own and get very creative. You may have to start your own business and with food that involves the health dept. I thought of a few ideas in that area too, but the food venture has its regulations. I wonder if we could start a business to order meals online for working people to pick up or be delivered. Maybe even deliver meals at work places. That could be done even through a chain of sharing ideas and recipes across the country.

    Can you get something like that started? I think you have to start small at first if you want to go buffet I would think you need a place to rent to do that and that would be a big expense to get started.

    personal chef My husband started a side business as a personal chef and it was very popular. He gave it up when he changed jobs and could no longer fit it into his schedule. Took very little to start up. He bought a cheap little website, which my daughter put together. She took a bunch of pictures of meals and him in a chef coat. He offered a menu and people ordered a weeks worth of meals for 4 people or 2 people or however many. He went to their homes and cooked in their kitchen,(no health dept issue because it was in their home and not ours) packed it all up,left instructions on heating, cleaned up the kitchen and left. Lots of busy overstressed people out there that dont feel like cooking. He charged a flat fee, plus the cost of the food. Would go shopping, bring the receipt and they would pay the fee and reimburse the shopping. Of course, he is a great chef, so that helped. SK

    Do you have the college courses required to teach. I just got my teaching degree and I don't know if it is age discrimination or what, but I do know that the market for teachers is saturated here. Many are looking for work, believe it or not. In order to take other certifications, I need to take other praxis exams. I do not want my certification to run out before I find a job as a teacher. I know that in some areas, you have to have the college classes to take certain praxis exams.

    How to cure panic attacks. Hold your breath. Really. It seems like you can't get enough air but, just hold your breath and your heart rate will calm down. See if you can find some info on hatha yoga on-line, for free. I'm single, alone and sufficiently freaked out. Plus, I've got a stalker in my life and somebody who is a disabled vet ing me all the time. So, I have to avoid picking up my phone. Try to think of what you would do if worse comes to worse. Can you buddy up with all of your friends and live in a tent community with WiFi somewhere? The stress of not knowling what your options are is wearing on you. Understandable. But, just try to thinks things out. You should take a walk every day. Even if its just around the block. A little 5-10 walk will work wonders.

    That is a good idea It looks like you are "freaked out" too. If worse came to worse, I would probably try and take in borders, but I would have to know them well. Maybe we could work on a plan. I could not fathom the idea of living in a tent out in the cold. I'm already freezing in the house.

    bankruptcy Have you ever filed for bankruptcy or do you know anyone who has? I don't think there is the same stigma around it that there used to be, because it is increasingly the only option for so many people. But I wonder how it would affect my ability to get school loans or grants?

    Maybe she did not file those things in the bankruptcy or she waited a number of years to get a mortgage and other loans. What did you do before you got laid off? It must have been something that interested an attorney. I know those attorneys have been extremely busy. Maybe you could start your own similar business on a small scale.
