I just turned 58 and haven’t been released for returning to work. I have always tried throughout my life and I’ve held down all kinds of different jobs on and off.
My health has always come in between everything. I have raised 5 children alone and did most of it from my bed and then my working somehow one full time job and two side jobs.
After my husband passed away suddenly I completely came unglued as if I wasn’t already out there. My kids gave me a reason to focus and keep pushing myself up and out there everyday.
I have done everything from call center, bar tending, office management, medical assistant, day care pre school, Engenering chip program, wave machine, shipping and purchasing mind you I never got a degree because I did the grunt work for small business that I knew the owners and due to my delicate health situation they put me where they needed me n trained me to do things on the circuit board in the manufacture of the products . I have almost died an had near death three times at least and I remember one. Story for another place?
I’m really nervous today because I have to get this job! I know my doctor is going to say no if I tell him but I’m dead if I don’t get a job! I’m really good on the phones but it’s been 8 years and I’m older now I’m terrified and I don’t feel well at all. I have newer issues the before but I have to do something ASAP
