To be honest, what sparked me to write that thread, is that I am a part of a depression forum elsewhere, and recently have been spending my time talking to people who have nowhere else to turn.
I couldn't help but notice many were capable, but just needed a break, and some were in crisis situations. Some just needed the ability to work at home, for various reasons. It just crossed my mind to wonder if anyone would even bother with someone like that, or think to hire them, or what have you?
So I posted here, wondering about it. There were some valid points made... is that person even going to be reliable? If they don't know what they are doing when I hire them, then is that even a wise decision etc...?
Well the intense irony in all of this, is that after posting this, and a few days later, I am personally about to become homeless. Shock to me. I lost my real life job a few weeks ago; and have done marketing work in the past.
Zero dollars to my name now. I cannot believe I am writing this, and saying this now either. I feel very stupid. In the past I had spoken to someone on this forum too, who also was homeless.
I imagine there are others from here too who have been where I am about to go. The sad thing is, even if I get my old offline job back, it just won't give me anything in time, because pay periods run 2 weeks later, 3 depending on if I can't even get in till next week.
There's a chance that might not even happen either. Life is a scary thing sometimes, even when we do our best; sometimes it just likes to throw curve balls at speeds we just can't hit, even when aiming right at it.
