Your heart is telling you to slow down. Your interest on your profile says "family". Please take care of yourself for your family. Don't feel like you can't find another job, you can. You aren't that old, but have years of experience. That's a real plus. Maybe dispatch or sales would be a possibility? Maybe working in a supply house? I know you won't get paid as much, but it's work, and you'll still be around for your family. Follow your doctors orders. I'm sure you will find a job that will work for you.

i dont know what to do
Dont worry, I don't know what I'm talking about.My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

Take it easy len
You may not get the job you want and you may not get the pay you want but you will get to keep the most important things, YOUR LIFE AND FAMILY. Take it easy and just go with the flow. If you stay with coke and the pay isn't as good, well then figure where you can cut back. If nothing else, do like my step dad did @68 years of age, take on a job as a security guard in a country club. He gets paid decent, good benifits and sits in an air conditioned office all day.
