I keep writing about this here… and I’m not sure why. For the first time in 35 years I’m unemployed. I let myself become almost completely obsolete in my (so-called) field: web site design and management. Everything I’m hearing about on what it would take to re-educate myself seems insurmountable. Besides, I’m running out of money.
I feel like I’m going to have to take some sort of an unskilled job in the service/retail work force, but I’m worried about leaving my elderly father at home alone (though, to be honest he doesn’t really seem to need me around much).
I just don’t know what to do. I feel doomed and useless. There’s a ton of other issues (affording health and mental care for one) that I have to deal with that also seem utterly insurmountable… and I keep feeling frozen by anxiety.
