miserable already. I'm self sufficient in that I don't rely on handouts from family to get by but I'm fed up of feeling like shit every day. The doctors answer is "take this for 6 months and come back then" and nothing has worked. I've tried some alternative medicines, and have got slightly better but it's unpredictable and fucks me off no end. Reality is, it's going to be hard to get any sort of work with so many unemployed people right now there's a huge demand for each job so they're going to look for people with experience/references which I don't have, so working for myself, or someone who trusts me enough to do something for them and understands that I might have to work weird hours depending on how I feel from day to day would be advantageous. It's just finding a niche that you know you can fill and getting out there.
Not going to even hazard a guess on what's wrong medically!
Still, doesn't make it easy.
One thing you might want to try while you are still studying is to do volunteer work on the side (or even unpaid work experience) which shows that you're active and keep a schedule, the people you're doing it for will possibly give you a reference. If you're not terrible
Plus there also is a repartee you can build during an interview at least that you're not a lazy scrub and have a human aspect to you. If you haven't done it already, it is time to begin networking and I'm not talking about facebook or something either.
