That was the first thing I thought when I got my cancer diagnosis this past December. Thank goodness I am fine and putting this behind me, but I don't want to ever feel as if I have wasted my life again. It's largely because I have been job searching for years to no avail. I have a specialty that is very narrow and some amazing companies have flown me places and have ALMOST hired me, but ultimately throw me back into the sea of despair where I now currently reside. So I need to change direction but I have staggering amounts of educational debt, barely can keep a roof over my head, and have no support system. And I'm 52! I was always told I was the "best and the brightest" but it no longer seems to resonate with anyone who can provide me a livelihood. How do I move forward so I don't waste this life struggling and job hunting until my demise? Thanks.
