I am surviving unemployment, so far. I attended a sort of orientation to the one stop job center today. I will probably meet with a job coach next week.
The only thing I am worried about is health insurance. My cobra insurance will be almost $500 a month and that is just too much. The state here requires you have health insurance or you get fined. I am hoping to qualify for some sort of state insurance or help paying my fee. It is just too much.
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. Trying to find a job and stay up emotionally during this if getting to me. This afternoon is quiet for me and I am totally coming down emotionally. Trying to be up, when you just really want to be sort of neutral takes a lot of energy.
On the plus side, my new friend (not sure what to call him) let me use his air conditioner and I am thinking, why did I wait so long to get one? At least now, I am sleeping in air conditioned comfort. That is a big positive right now.
I will be posting regularly again. I need this blog. Writing is therapeutic.
