hi tigress :)
I really relate to your post after working with a very strenuous job. It was strenuous because it involved tedious work. It didn't provide a challenge. I think that whatever a person has to do to get started is a good thing, but I think many people don't realize the resources out there for adults. Adults can get classes (free for some) towards an area of interest in many states. I figure that if it is possible in Texas, it is possible anywhere. I don't know what it is like where you are, but here, (in the states) an easy way to find out is to contact organizations that help people get back on their feet. Sometimes a local social worker, women's center etc. Can be a big help.
One thing we did not really have in the family, was time to pursue a hobby, whatever that might be. Whether arts, music, theatre, horseback riding, whatever. Sometimes it is possible to find a job in an area of interest by networking. Maybe volunteer work first at an area of interest. Networking is probably the single most important part of finding the kind of job you want. And any jobs in between, well that is great. I hope the best for you Tigress. And for your family.
Myself, I am not really caring about being rich, but what I would like is the sense of security to know that I can get sufficient medical care, can pay my bills, can keep on going "in case of".
That for me is the hardest. So many people in this country live from check to check.
