Nona, something will, no question. It's always when you least expect it, and sometimes in the weirdest ways. Maybe it won't even be one of those applications, but because you mentioned to someone that you were looking, and they knew someone who had something and remembered you and... Honestly, a friend of mine down in Texas just had something like that land out of the blue after losing her job just before Xmas.

I sure it will but in the mean time I'm watching our savings go out the door to household bills, extra cost in fuel so I can job scout and rising cost of food and not to mention medical bills for his two surgerys still.

You know sometimes I have to hear myself and ask why am I complaining? I saw a couple today who didn't have a car or transportation at that and not even enough money to pay for their fries and 1 drink ( I chipped in a dollar) but they were happy and smiling and nice people. Why am I taking things for granted, not intentionally though.

That's absolutely right SM, a friend of mine had a similar situation and it was months before his stress fracture was finally diagnosed - by that time it had got a whole lot worse and he needed surgery. So many doctors missed it originally, eventually it was a physio who picked it up from a scan.

It's not just you, Nona. Common side effect of living in a society of entitlement.

It's just anxiety, Nona. Panic/worry creates tunnel vision. So kudos to you for being aware that others were in worse shape -- and helping despite your own concerns. Sorry, there's prob nothing else I can say that won't sound trite...

Good news that your test results are clear, Nona. I would've thought that reading would be good for you - you can escape into a different world and then forget all your troubles. It's very relaxing.

Have you thought of voluntary work - it sometimes leads to a permanent job?
