Response to midnight (Original post)

Fri Aug 10, 2012, 09:18 AM

2. I am technically homeless,

and living with a friend I've known for 35 years. At this stage in her life, my friend has OCD and anxiety disorders, and is routinely verbally abusive and corrosive. She also smokes, and I have to be very careful about her second-hand smoke, to which I am extremely allergic.

I have a meager amount of money from my retirement account, and stuff in storage I can sell to extend my viability. When all those resources are gone, I will be destitute.

I've applied for every job in this rural area in the fifth worst state in which to live, to no avail. I've applied for a job as a Family Service Worker, the same job I had when I was taking care of my mom, and felt sure I'd be a shoe-in. They haven't called me for an interview, even though I have the skills and experience to qualify. I have an inside source who told me yesterday they have 73 applicants to interview. I think I'd have grounds for a lawsuit if they don't interview me. But, who has the money for a lawyer?

My Kevorkian Option seems inevitable...
