I've been out of work almost a year by choice. I have a lot of health problems, so I stopped working. During my hiatus from the work force I've been able to spend time writing and with my family. I've also had time to contemplate my life.
My health probably won't get any better, but I can't sit around forever. So I've made a very tough decision I am once again going to try and enter the work force.
I don't know how it will turn out. So I am going to take advantage of the time I now have between jobs to focus on what needs to be done in "real" life.
