    Routine life,having my own hobbies and things to keep me occupied and no complaints.However..it’s like “is that it?”

    I badly miss going to India..it’s been 3 years..secondly,my relationship with my relatives has gone haywire a bit and that’s another low point which am trying to come to terms with.

    Thirdly,I badly need a change.

    I thought whether I like it or not..let me try for some job at least for distraction.I am trying for past one and half years but am getting only a 9-6 job which absolutely will not work in my case due to personal reasons.

    Been trying for remote and part time badly but nothing..so now I took a break from looking coz it is causing mental stress.

    Is this becoz am abroad and the place is so quiet?

    I have zillion things to keep me busy but I miss something..cannot place my finger in it..usually am okay but today I feel quite low.

    Also did not sleep well last two days.Could be that too..

    I badly need a change in life.Is this feeling normal?

    You should have done certificates evaluation long back, if not get it done. It will be useful for life long. Fingerprints is one days work.

    You can try paraprofessional at any elementary school. You don't need any certificate for that.

    Fingerprint is as easy as pie. Just find a nearby company, pay the fees, give your fingerprints and they will do everything for you.

    First of all you need to understand that this is very normal. So don't beat your self. You have mentioned that you have hobbies etc so do you go to groups if not try doing that it will help. Check your local library and see if they have regular meeting of crafts you are interested in. You can also set up a group in the library and I am sure you will get the help from the library itself to set up groups of like minded people. You might even find that some one might even suggest where to get a part time job. You can volunteer at charity ( think it is called thrifty stores in US) shops.
    God bless you.

    You’re right in saying that you will get a change by going for some job...
    Please get certificates done like others suggested..
    I understand need for change a small I too feel like I want to do something useful like a volunteer or part time job.
    I’m in India, due to pandemic I’m stuck indoors and in city with many cases, ..and limitation of not being able to step out unless it’s essential .
    but there in US everything is opening up and vaccination rates are high..you can actually get some kind of opportunity in next few months or atleast by beginning of next year if you try all options.
    Hopefully next year all kids should have full fledged school and you wouldn’t have to worry much about childcare.

    Yes. This is normal. Stories had been written about such suffering.
    Having extra time during the day, no phone calls from anyone... can be unnerving.
    You must do physical activities during the day to get tired, so that you can sleep through the night. Having a dog, and taking her for a brisk walk might help.
