Looking for work sucks BIG TIME.

Made to feel like an
inadequate failure because
I'm too old for the job
and have nothing to show
for my life.
Made to feel like an
inadequate failure because
of lack of transportation
getting in the way of
finding work.
Made to feel like an
inadequate failure because
I'm a good worker, dammit,
and no one gives me the chance to
prove myself.
Made to feel like an
inadequate failure because of
lack of education and the money
to get experience...feel like
a dummy.
Made to feel like an
inadequate failure because
my attitude sucks and I
blame my disibility for all
that is wrong...
when it is me that has failed.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Tough lady disability is not physical it is mental and moral. You have a bright mind and straight moral convictions. Nothing can hamper you from being at the top of life. It is not you that you are not utilized properly but it is the system (though i thought it was a better system) that does not give you AN opportunity to show your abilities.
best of luck

BULLSHIT! yOU HAVE NOT FAILED! Failed is the system & our nation does not see handicapped people as being able to do anything...Have you been able to talk to some place that deals with people with disabilities...maybe they can point you in the right direction...till then, unfortunately there is welfare, but you gotta live, hon!

Karla, it is not you who failed, it is society. There are so many out there who have knowledge and experience and are even loving and caring, but they are not what the "boss" is looking for. It is a shame. Don't give up and most of all, don't feel bad about yourself! their loss in the end, not yours. The right job will come!
Lots of Love and many, many hugs, B&R

Stop with this nonsense....Fire're in a corner...come out fighting...Get pissed...Stay real...Stand proud and tough...Do it 'cause no-one else is going to, and you don't have a choice. God loves a fighter...all you need is 'you' to win...clear on your objective, undying in your effort to achieve your goal(s)...Do it...You can and you will...Period

Okay...let's think. You are talented, creative and good with kids...BINGO!!! Go to your local Board of Education and apply for a
Paraprofessional's job. They support the teachers, do crafts for children, read and grade papers. Mostly they relieve the teacher from certain duties so he/she can teach. You'd be perfect...please try this first before you say you can't.
Love and prayers,

Karla you are not and never were a failure, your ability to pull yourself up find new strength to even go look for a job is proof of that in itself. It is not easy to face the interviewers and feel like they are looking at you with indifference, I know I too have been there in past. You will though find the right person who will see you for what and who you are and when that day comes you will smile knowing that it is real and sincere. Till then though the hurt pain and uncertainty seem an unacceptable burden you will go on.

I know this dear Karla ... that anyone who can write with this depth of emotional angst and touch the heart of another, is NOT! a failure.

Patience and perserverance are the thoughts for this day and hereafter.

Stand strong dear heart!

Reviewed by E T Waldron 7/13/2006
First Karla, a dummy can't write like this! now take the rest and see that it isn't your failure as much as the ignorant people are, that you have to deal with. Don't let pride keep you from getting local help until you find work. If you can't get a job you are entitled to disability. check it out. Whatever you do ,please stop letting the system dictate who you are! You are a very talented person and a good one. You know this, but when you have to deal with idiots you can lose your confidence. Don't let that happen. I'm praying for you Karla, and hope things improve soon!
