hi irene (iris)

your post is very touching. you are certainly very brave in your recovery from what must have been a very difficult ride.

i've always had a job that required some training in advance. when i was a lifeguard, for example, i needed $600 worth of lessons/certification tests before i could start working. i think if you are quick you can do crash courses (almost literally)

of course, i was required to teach swimming lessons to children, this may be a problem if you have social anxiety. if your social anxiety is limited to adults, however, it can be quite rewarding to watch a child master a skill you taught her.

i worked at a coffee and donut shop at the university. it was ok. if you're going to get a service job, go work at your nearest institute of higher education. they pay living wages (generally) and if you are full time you get tuition credits to upgrade your education.

good luck :)
