Unemployed after 13 years in the patch

35 years old and I’ve finally had to accept that fact that everything I worked for the past 13 years is gone. Well, at least for my generation it is. The oil boom will come back but not likely for a couple more decades. I always thought that if I pay my dues, work hard and do work in undesirable locations, it would pay off in the long run. I guess it, did based on my last job of 7 years but now, for me to have to completely shift careers, is going to be tough. 

The days have been going by so fast I can’t even believe it. I keep having nightmares about work, dreaming that I’m back on site trying to figure out what exactly I am doing there. The same thing over and over. 

It’s about day 35 now with no job and I’m losing steam. Everything is starting to look more and more grim each day with little to no hope in site. NOt sure how everyone else is making it these days but I have come to the conclusion, based on all the decisions I have made in my life, that I am horrible at the game of life..
