I’ve been unemployed for over a year now. My job was eliminated in May 2016 and I had a job offer a couple of weeks later that I turned down for some reason. After that, my family had a series of hospitalizations (emergency surgery for my son, some stays for me for epilepsy) and now, here we are. It seems like my skills are not useful for anyone any more, but of course taking classes, etc. costs a lot of money and I’m trying to save to pay bills. I don’t really know what to do now except for praying and continued looking at the job ads, but these are taking time and I don’t know when they will end.
