    I tried to use this site earlier in the month then just gave up but I am trying again. I am at my lowest. I am an LPN (licenced practaical nurse) and while I was on vacation, using my PTO and spending money I was laid off. I felt that they were replacing LPNs with RNs but it still shocked me. I am all alone with only a niece 100 + miles away. I live in a very rural area and jobs are scarce. I am afraid of losing my home and acreage and worry about my animals. I am tired of worrying and of being alone. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis and hurt all the time. I am really feeling at the end of things.

    I have heard (from various sources) that LPN's are in demand in the major cities. If you can still work (despite your condition) maybe you should move closer to a major city (I know you would prefer not to based on the other info in your post). If you can't work any longer, perhaps you can apply for disability. I know this isn't of much help and I also know someone close to me with fibromyalgia and know how debilitating it can be. But I just wanted you to know that you have been heard and that you can private message me if you want to.

    Thank you, Mike. It would mean losing my home and animals if I moved back to the city. I have been here for over 12 years. Thank you for taking the time to send me the message. It means alot.
