Hi Mark

long story short last 4 years I have had a workplace injury, Sick dad who passed last year, job loss and 41 year marriage break up. Think that’s it lol. Now a 60 year old job seeker with bad knees and no clue.

Hi it gets a bit confusing doesn’t it lol

Hi Mandajane,

I can't image how hard it is for you, but please don't lose hope.

I feel you have complex live challenges which is hard to be fixed in short term, but there is hope and possibility to improve step by step.

I feel you need someone to walk a long journey with you. It can be a mental health support worker, or a peer worker with lived experience. Some of these resources are free. I do encourage you to give Beyond Blue a call, they might be able to help you access these support resources.

If you have a family member or close friend that you can rely on, do not hesitate to ask support from them as well.

It might be a long journey but please don't lose hope and confidence.
