I have always worked and taken care of myself. I look forward to the day I can be more stable because these are very scary times and I'm not sure I can keep a roof over my head without income. The pandemic has hit me close to home and I'm scared. I have always taken care of others. I've worked as a caregiver for many years and that is my true passion - helping people. I enjoy family, reading, and taking care of people in need, especially seniors.
I was finally going to be able to have a really good job in a senior care setting, with my Certified Nursing Assistant certification, which I completed last month. Unfortunately, the company stopped their on-boarding process the day before my orientation, because of the pandemic. I'm considered high risk by my doctor, and so I will need to find a lower risk position once businesses open back up. I'm behind on my rent, utilities and car payment. I did get some help last month from family but they have also lost their incomes due to the pandemic. I'm out of options and feeling lost.
Since I have my CNA certification, I'm looking forward to getting a solid position as a caregiver once the virus is less risk. I will be exploring all options in the coming months!
I guess just being able to go to sleep every night knowing I am trying my best and being kind to others/helping people is what makes me happiest.
