Hey what’s up @jwosh01
Keep your head up, my friend. What you’re experiencing is indeed hard, and it was good to reach out, we all need support at times, it’s how we were made.

I can completely relate to the extended resume and being what I call a “collector of skills.”

While it does indeed make it difficult to acquire jobs at times, it’s not impossible.
Focus on your strengths and what it is you bring to the table.

Also, don’t be too proud to ask for help. Assuming you are in the US, there are resources via government or private sources that are there to help people in your situation. It’s ok to utilize them.

All in all, you got this. Keep moving forward, provide for your little ones, and let situations like this build and grow your character. There is always hope.

God bless you,
