The biggest obstacle for me in all of this is maintaining a positive attitude.  When I think about the financial struggles logically, it is not too difficult to see that this is not a problem that is insurmountable.  When I am in a fog, and things just get out of focus, I make things more difficult than they need to be.  It is a mental thing...

Something will come your way! I've usually searched 3-6 months to find the jobs that I've had.

Take the money. I'm a professor. If I make such an offer, it's because I actually think you're worth it. In that case, it's what you deserve.

Thank you, guys.  I got a little confidence boost yesterday...one of my former professors asked me to come in and lead her class in a discussion about autism for a day.  She even offered me $200, but I am not sure how I feel about accepting $.

Hopefully, I start getting some phone calls soon!

Keep your chin up! You can do this. I totally appreciate the "mental" thing. Its just as hard as a physical thing sometimes.
Good for you for moving forward!

The best of luck to you on your job search.  I truly believe there is nothing harder than finding a job!  Any rejection you might run into can really make you feel down.  Keep on keeping on & I hope that perfect job is right around the corner!!!

It's so admirable that you're still in the game after going through all that loss. Hang in there.
