    for the past 5 1/2 yrs since i moved here i cant so much as have a cup of coffee with anyone. I do have this friend ive known for yrs before i moved here when i was working in the resorts and i get to see her once in a while but she lives 45 minutes away so shes not in the same town. I go to church and stuff but after a while you get tired of people never inviting you anywheres. im used to visiting people in their homes and going out with them but where i live that seems impossible. I dont have a job so its not like i can see people at work, I thought of something like the big sister program but i think you need to work before they let you do that. thought of visiting people in nursing homes but i heard where i live you cant do that, thought of volunteering where im meeting those kinds of needs and getting my own needs met at the same time. any suggestions? Im tired of living like this to be honest. I live in an apt building and not even my neighbors will ever knock on my door to ask me to go anywheres with them, theyve ignored me on birthdays, christmas, etc., I feel like a loner but not by choice and wondered how i can turn that around. im short so ive wondered if people were discriminating since i lost a job one time when i was handing out samples in stores and this lady came to train me and when she saw how short i was mustve told the company, she was telling me how i couldnt reach stuff, then the company canned me. not even guys will date me. any suggestion

  • Anyone know anything about pest repellers for bedbugs?

    Ive had issues with them lately and i had a pest repeller that i was using but not specifically for them and it worked for a while, i had to trash, sheets, pillows and blankets, Later I got another one specifically for bedbugs and plugged that one in my bedroom and the other one in the living rm, the ones in the living rm i havent seen in... show more
    Ive had issues with them lately and i had a pest repeller that i was using but not specifically for them and it worked for a while, i had to trash, sheets, pillows and blankets, Later I got another one specifically for bedbugs and plugged that one in my bedroom and the other one in the living rm, the ones in the living rm i havent seen in over a wk, while the ones in my bedroom i still see once in a while, one time when i was frustrated i moved the first pest repeller in and plugged it near the other one, i dont know if its true but i read that if you put two pest repellers in the same room they can cancel each other out, but i thought it would work but after seeing some this morning i took one of the out and kept the one in specifically for those bugs. sometimes i might not see them at all for two days and then all of a sudden see them, ive had the new pest repeller in two wks now so why am i still seeing them, Ive sprayed around my bed too. management here wont do anything if youre just seeing one or two at a time, they'll just spray and i can do the same on my own, i cant lift the mattress so if i needed to get rid of it id have to ask someone to get it and get me another one and pay for it which ive thought about doing. my neighbors get them too, they wont do the heat treatment for just a couple of them. so how long once you have a pest repeller before it starts working? im tired of always having to inspect my bed before sleeping in it, any suggestions ?

    I've lived here over 5 yrs and the past 14 months they have torn down the library a block away to make room for this conference center and theyre making this motel and parking lot, since i live down the street from all the noise im honestly fed up with it, i get up earlier than i would like, dont need an alarm when i get woken up by loud beeps, Im listening to it now too, they do this all day, every day, and sometimes on saturday so i can never sleep in. ever. cause i get up earlier sunday cause of church, even if i sleep with a fan and earplugs they wake me up anyways, ive heard this at night too. I was going to school but because of all the demolition noise and the constant beeping and hammering and drilling i could never study at home, couldnt read nothing for school and if id go to the school library people would talk, so i was getting d's in my classes all fall and spring. till i flunked out. last friday someone told me the name of the hotel theyre building so i looked it up online and wrote a message to them explaining how i was having a hard time with the noise and how i lost my only income too, cause of it i cant get grants, and wondered if they could hire me. figured they owe me one. today, the lady i wrote to calls me, she probably got my number from the resumes i sent out to her, she told me about the job fair theyre having on fri and sat all day and how they might hire on the spot, and gave me the address, do you think they'll hire me?

    I've been dealing with this for over 5 yrs, I was working in resorts and had to leave over two hip implants and a knee surgery. I cant get ssi, cant get welfare money cause of being single, I cant go to school, ive tried but i end up with d's and now Im not sure i can stay. I might have some kind of learning disability and i might take that up with ssi, since trying with physical problems didnt work, im thinking of trying the psych stuff like learning disabilities, stuff like that. I dont have a boyfriend around to take care of me, my parents are dead so no help there and my siblings could care less. I have hud and foodstamps and medicaid but you cant buy toilet paper with foodstamps, hud wont let you start your own business so i cant even sell avon, thought of donating plasma since where i live they will pay you for it but once when i tried it they couldnt find a vein. I dont have relatives i can go to for help either. jobs wont hire me and if they do they wont keep me, i think they discriminate against me cause im short, I once went handing out samples in stores and when they came to train me they saw how short i was and i wasnt going to be able to reach stuff so they wouldnt let me work. I cant even so much as find a babysitting job or even walking dogs. any suggestions on what I can do to make money when noone will hire me? Im just out of ideas. I do have a friend that will help me out if i need it but i cant afford to be out of work, i have allergies too.

Like my last job is a good example, I was handing out samples in the stores and was doing great, the manager liked me and then they sent some lady to train me one day, she did mention something about not being able to reach the shelves when I needed to keep track of how many items sold. all i had to do was ask a worker there to count them for 2 seconds or even get a rolling ladder there. the next thing I know Im told i cant work there anymore but they'll try to get me something else. I got along good with the manager, i feel like they sent a spy out after me and once they saw how short i was it was the end of it, how can i prove this? any suggestions? its making it hard for me to get income,

    I got this job handing out samples in stores, about a wk and a half ago was the last time i went, I was being trained and the person that trained me said that it was slow and that it would pick up around easter, I get job offers in my email and the problem is theyre mostly not in my area and i dont drive so I cant just spend $100 every time i go to work or id go broke. I did tell them that and even asked if there was a way to carpool with someone but they said there wasnt. so my question is did i mess up during training? no one has really complained about anything or are they just slow and i could get jobs in my area soon. I do have permission to sit so i took this cane with a chair and was using it and it broke while i was sitting on it, someone told them about it, i didnt want workers comp cause i didnt really hurt myself bad or anything and it healed fast, my knee just doubled up on me , i had to sign a form saying i didnt need workers comp or want it. I trashed that cane and theyre letting me use the chairs in the break room but are they afraid i'll get hurt again, Is that why theyre not calling me or are they just slow like my trainer said? so if anyone has done this type of work before how slow does it get? I get my job offers thru email and then I click if im interested and then they send me an email saying if I have it or not. its like temp work and nothing like a regular job. so how often is it normal to do a job like this? im new at this .

I wondered if it was cause im short 4ft5 and the cart was taller than me, do you think one of the managers told her about me being short? any ideas of what happened? I have a hard time finding work, and wondered if it was cause of my height,wish i could prove it, i have a twin sister same height as me who told me one time when she went for a job they told her they couldnt hire her cause of her being short, my sister said at least they said it to her face and not behind her back.

I cant move right now cause i dont have a job and i live in hud housing, but i dont want to feel like everyone might as well be inside my apartment, other neighbors talk in the halls too but not constantly like she does. Its annoying cause im in school and i cant even do my homework here cause of her, I have to go to the college library and do it cause shes that loud. I dont feel like anyone will listen if i complain about her cause shes just talking but the constant talking is getting on my nerves. I would like to relax when im home and not listen to her 24/7. I might have a job soon so i'll have more money, maybe to move or at least get away from her more, i have homework to do and cant do it till monday cause of her talking so much, any suggestions?
