I am a 23 obese, unemployed, community college drop out female living at home with parents with seemingly no job prospects in sight.

The gist of my work history counts for 1 week and a day with 4 temp agencies.

The most recent assignment was in April where I worked in a factory packaging bagged items for $7.25.

I lost that one like the others because I got frustrated I couldn't do a simple tasks correctly and quickly. When

I get frustrated I cry, when I cry I get embarrassed, when embarrassed I never return to the place I cried at.

Now months later I have no job nothing to look forward too and no money because I can't handle my emotions.

I don't know what to do the only jobs I do get are through temp agencies and I'm going through them like a bag of Cheetos.

Everything I do I'm failing at it. I can't stick to anything long term and since I know I have somewhere to fall back too why bother right?

They don't care what I do as long as I don't get pregnant because parents say it destroys peoples lives. My other female siblings have kids and looks like their doing well.

I should find someone on Craigslist and hopefully get pregnant also.

I am seriously asking who the hell would hire me ? i can't pass a normal interview lack of social skills, and the temp agencies I see hiring are all the ones i wen't to. and haveb;t heard from or can';t go back too.



long story short i need a job i read today that keeping popping a rubber band around your writs can keep you from crying so i will try that or something cuz i need something i can't do this anymore and my parents are getting to old to worry about my fat, dumb, worthles peice of crap.

right now i'm in the house with no clue what to do. right now right at this instance.

Maybe finding a work coach/mentor would help you with establishing confidence in your abilities?

i am so stupid that warehouse job was such a good deal and i even had a job that was 10.25 that was the most i ever made but couldn't even last a month. i can't even put that on a resume...how the heck was i suppose to do this..i took me forever to get those two..full time also..i'm so behind..

i am so glad at least i don't plan on having a kid or any sort of relationship in the future..i need to get all of this straighted out.

if only my mother can get me into her job likek she did all my other sisters..but the owner liked them they are so fun and outgoing..why did i run away,,

I STRONGLY suggest you call a social service organization, a pastor, a mentor to talk with someone. You need to work on your attitude about yourself and your confidence.

No offense but the first thing I would do is work on your weight. I was overweight like you, but cutting down on a lot of things I used to eat help me shed pounds and regain my confidence. With the state of the economy, no employer wants to hire someone who may become a health liability down the road.

Thats the honest truth.

I would try Best Buy for some pocket money. Tbh, they will hire someone who can work part time.

I agree that you need to speak with someone as well. Speaking with my uncle, grandmother and pastor helped me through the darkest hour of my life.

none taken i already know about my weight i have been struggling since I was a kid. eating is the only thing that gave me any sort of pleasure in my life cutting down is going to difficult.

i'd rather not have anyone who actually knows me because i don't know trust strangers with and sure as hell dont trust my family members without the benefit of anonymity.


and i will look at best buy thanks.

A friend of mine is 450 lbs and works as a teacher assistant sitting on a chair part time all day. Nobody will hire him. 44 years old and committed to the junk food. He and his wife order pizza 5 times a week. And why not when you have pots and pans with last weeks leftovers in the sink and on the counter you don't want to cook. They're slobs. Start walking now. Get yourself in some shape.
