Throughout the timeline of this blog I have been through a lot of medication changes as well as life changes. It is those life changes that promoted this post.
I believe I have hit close to rock bottom. Let me explain how:
* Finances – well this time last year I was a high flying professional earning a decent wage that allowed me to live a pretty good lifestyle. Fast forward to today, that job is lost and I am on a benefit which barely covers the basic expenses. I am usually left with $80 per week to feed three people. To put this in context my budget last year for groceries was between $200-250 per week. I don’t have any extra money to pursue any hobbies or put away in savings.
* Employment – As mentioned above I was a high flying professional. Today I am unemployed and will find it very hard to find a job once I am in a position to start applying again. Having a criminal record and a lifelong mental health condition are generally two big red flags for employers.
This post was just meant to stay as a draft in my private collection. Instead I have opened it publicly to see if anyone else is in a similar situation and has some advice.
