    I think i have finally hit the bottom, i am very depressed. I sometimes think of ways of ending all to figure i am to scared to try it what will happen if it doesn't work. I am in so much pain, i have chronic pain from my neck and shoulder injury, i have nerve damage that makes it feel like i am on fire most of the time, my fingers are numb with pin and needle sensations i find myself sad and crying most of the time, i haven't worked a job since August of 2009. I can't do nursing anymore i feel like a failure, hopeless, helpless, and lost. I dont know what kind of work i can do now i was an LVN, but i cant lift more than 25 pounds constantly. My case was settled so i have no doctor no insurance and no job. i was on meds but i dont have those no more my Lyrica, Ambien, and Hydrocodone. I dont sleep but if lucky 3 to 5 hours a night, i have got into a mess. Sorry for bothering you with my problems. Thanks, Alice

I have been waiting almost amonth for a gate clearence and it never arrives acoording to my recruiter, he says it takes awhile but now I think I might be getting the runaround just to keep me on board in case something happens to come in.

How is the housing? The Travelmax recruiter tells me everyone keeps extending is this true? Any information would be helpful. Thank You, Alicet:uhoh21:

    I am in Reno, but it just doesn't seem like anyone wants to give me the time of day. I applied at Renown, and I went to different skilled nursing homes, applied at the VA.
