I was really unhappy with my old job so I put in my two weeks and left. I had been training before I put in my notice to be a blackjack dealer at a casino however this casino does not pay you while you train. So basically I have no income right now. Luckily I live in low income housing so my rent should go down to zero if everything goes through properly. But I just haven't been feeling 100%. I've been making excuses to not go train as much as I should.

Pretty much I haven't been up to doing much other than lying in bed. Sleeping mostly. Or watching tv/movies. This isn't like me. I don't usually mope around and feel sorry for myself but I can't seem to get out of bed before 12pm..

Also the casino is 30 miles away and I don't want to use my limited money left on gas back and forth when I'm not 100% sure I'll get this job. Should I just start looking for a lower paying job closer to home? Something to get out of the house? I'll feel like a failure if I don't go through with the casino one tho. I've put so many hours into training there...

Ugh

Sooners, I can relate to this problem. Sometimes it is hard to become motivated to embark on a new career amid some huge changes in your life. I know you recently ended a relationship and left a soul sucking job that, most likely, left you a little tired and confused. Throw in the holidays and a new year and...well...I can see why you may be in a bit of a funk.

 

Is there anyone else who lives near you that you could ride share to training? Or maybe a family member who will loan you money for gas with the understanding that you will pay them back when you are working again. If neither of those things work out, it may be cheaper to find someone to stay with a few times a week during you training period-the casino may know of affordable housing or current workers who wouldn't mind loaning you their couch a few times a week.

 

I think once you get going, you will be able to focus and do well at your "audition".

 

Best of Luck~

I'm sorry. I can relate to deciding between options regarding emplyment when no choice seems to lead to something tolerable or that might be worth it past the difficulty beginning at all can bring.

I think these are very good ways of moving forward if the distance of the casino position/the work itself there is too much to maintain for where you see it going in the future. In my opinion you're not  a failure for giving an opportunity at try as you have, or then deciding it's not the best for you at this point in time. I've had to start over again so many times myself over the years with other opportunities I'm grateful eventually came along. I'm sorry I give awful advice but I hope however you decide to move forward it leads to positive things happening for you and a better way in how you feel.

Are you on meds?  Do you think you need a med tweak?  For me feeling similar means I need a med adjustment.

Tammy:Well I dunno anyone in my town that works there so ride sharing is out. My dad loaned me some gas money once but I felt terrible even asking for it so I don't want to do that again.

Phoenix:I do think I would be happy working there. It's just the anxiety and build up of whether or not I am even going to get the job or if I'm jumping through hoops for nothing...

Melissa:even if I do need a med tweak nothing can be done about that right now because I'm gonna have to find a new pdoc.

Just got a ticket in the mail last week I can't afford to pay..it's like $230 or something.

I feel like my whole life is burning down in flames and all I can do is crawl into a ball and ignore it.
