Anna, I know times get hard! I really do! Please keep your chin up and keep applying for those jobs, something will come about! (((Hugs))) <3
Anna, I can imagine how it feels to be in a foreign country, I live in a foreign country as well. I am married and have children but all my siblings, and parents are far away, in the USA. I first did not know the language, but took a language course class, and met people through the class. I am a christian so I also started to read my Bible, and my faith gives me so much fulfillment, as I feel I am never alone. I also have RA, so have had a lot of surgeries, but I love my hobby of card making and the people here are so kind, you will find this a wonderful site full of great people. I will keep you in my prayers. Hugs! Claudia
I just read the great news that you got a job, Congratulations!
Congratulations on the new job!!! Just take one day at a time and when you feel a panic attack coming on take a deep breath and think of something funny. I had a panic attack on the way to work one morning and I began to think about whether to call 911 at the stop sign or wait until I was in the school parking lot. I decided at that point not to call 911 because I was not going to let the administrators at my school kill me - I started to laugh at the thought and I felt much better. I became a lot more assertive after that and taught school for many years. I find card making to be very relaxing - watch the videos and you will get lots of ideas, That is how I started. Churches have craft fairs sometimes - maybe you could sell some cards there. I will keep you in my prayers.
Congratulations on the job Anna! Keep up the good work! Claudia's advice of reading your Bible is wonderful, Proverbs has much. As you pray each day, ask God to take the panic attacks from you and then Thank Him for taking them! When they do come up, pray in that moment, take this from me! Then, as Donna said think of something funny or something that gives you peace. This site is a supportive family! If you are able to make cards, jewelry, and the other items you mentioned - DO IT! High schools in my area have craft fairs in November -a long ways away now, but giving you time to 'stock up' to sell. I will add you to my prayers as well. Be Blessed Anna! Kathi
Anna, I'm so glad you were able to find a job. I can tell you, even if the job doesn't seem like one that is right for you, sometimes it turns out that is just where God wanted you and good will come out of it.
You might try selling some of your items on Etsy. There are often craft sales that will "rent" you a table for a small amount at places.
Getting a new job is wonderful congratulations. The advice everyone
has given is so full of kindness and love for you. Just soak it up.
Stay positive be thankful for everything even your garage. You will find
it helps you to be happier it will also help bring about more good things to
you. You are so lucky to have your mom and a boy friend you are not alone. You are in my prayers.
God bless you
So glad you found a job Anna! Do hope the panic attacks get better...I've had a few myself, although not for a while, so know they aren't fun. Keep looking to God, and he will get you through! Hugs!
