The cat fleas that the flat was infested with when we moved in no longer have our poor cats to eat (they never had fleas at the old place except for one bout after a cattery stay) and have decided that I am the next best meal and I appear to be allergic. Antihistamine cream (OTC) to the rescue! Also the Benadryl syrup that I take in the summer for hayfever (the tablets/pills have lactose in them and make me ill).

"Sam's Guide to Job Hunting"

While I will not be looking for work any time soon (MS, DLA, etc.), this is amazingly well written and I recommend it to any of you that are looking for work.

It's important to note at the outset, though, that the specifics of this system may not work for everyone. You have to find what works for you. That being said, this system is designed to minimize the amount of a) work and b) thinking you have to do. The latter is important because thinking is hard and causes anxiety and if you have depression, you are likely to find any reason you can not to think. This isn't a character flaw; it's brain chemistry. So. Minimal thinking required. Whatever your system, spend each day wondering "how can I do less work?" and you will find yourself getting more done.

I've got an outline at the end for people who don't want to read every damn thing I say. :D

LET'S GO JOBSEARCHING. Hold on tight.
