Hate to hear you're having such a tough time. First, I know of a company that I worked for here in Georgia that moved their headquarters to Texas. They have a hvac side and a plumbing side, both need welders. Rogers Mechanical, they are south of dfw but I'm sure they are working all over. They would be worth a call.
Second, tell everyone you can that your a welder and want work, like friends and family. I've had good opportunities pop up from a friend of a friend kind of thing.
Third, maybe research different industries and pivot into a different type of welding. Like going from general construction to aerospace. There are alot of doors being a welder can open and different industries might have a totally different vibe.
Just keep working hard it will pay off!
