I’m overwhelmed and have been trying to deny the stress I am feeling. Just so much isn’t going right.
I’ve not had any job interviews set up. Of the 16 emails I sent out on the nanny website, I had one response and she has not replied since. The friend who is leaving a nanny share said she told the mom about me and she didn’t like that I have a kid who would be coming. The other friend who has two days with a family near me hasn’t decided yet if she wants to find something else for sure. I ran into that mom at the park this afternoon and she knew who I was and was very nice. I’ve posted my info in a few online groups but haven’t had any responses yet. As far as work, I don’t know what else to do.
The rest of it all seems minor compared to the money part of it. But, it would really help if I felt I had one or two good people to lean on for emotional support and ideas. I feel pretty alone in all of this. People come to me to discuss their issues, like both of these nanny buddies, but then who do I get to go to? Apparently, no one has the attention span or desire to reciprocate.
Without a solution to these problems and no one to spend time with, I’m throwing myself into reading. That’s about all I can do to try to remain calm and keep my head above water.
