nikita, don't be so hard on yourself --- you're far from the only good person who's been trying for years to find a job, without success so far. We don't measure the quality of a person by success, but by their bravery and persistence. HS makes some useful suggestions. Do you have family who could help and support ? And ANY job, to start with, will help financially and boost your confidence and competence.
Val, what helpful suggestions could you make here ?
