I am really hurting and don't know what to do.  I am seeing a new pdoc since the first of July.  She has started me on some new meds and has weaned me off effexor.  I have my ups and downs.  I saw her last Thur. and she said she did not need to see me for 3 weeks which is a good sign but on Friday I went down really hard.  Fortunatly I had some friends to meet in the early evening.  I could not even put a front up for them.  I am doing a bit better now but with my situation I don't know when I am going to go down again.  I have been unemployed since the end of July.  Although they can fire you for no reason, one of the reasons did not really exsist.  I was accussed of doing something I have no memory of and would never ever do it to begin with.  My supervisor claimed to have proof but when I told her I did not do it she never once offered to show me what proof she had.  My friends all say there is no way I could do it.  The other little things were as several people said, would have never even been an issue where they work.  I know she wanted to get rid of me so if I sneezed wrong she wrote it down.  To be honest, she had no business ever being a supervisor.  At one point my dad said it sounded like they eliminated her job and had no where else to put her so gave her that job and he was exactly right.  She has had no training.  She played favorites which was very evident.  But that is all water under the bridge.  I have a feeling that when called regarding referrences they are telling negative stuff but there is no way to prove it or find out what they are saying.   Anyway each day gets harder and harder.  I am terrified of running out of unemployment.  I am registered with maybe 7 temp. agencies and have had one one day assignment.  I am a hard worker and do my best to make sure I don't make any errors.  What I am afraid of is going down again.  That time was the worst it has ever been.  My pdoc has no idea what happened as it happened the day after I saw her and I don't see her for 3 weeks.  If anyone has any advise for me I would really appreciate it.

Hi Chelsi, My name is Nicky..I have been suffering for along time with depression.  Last Thursday I saw a Pdoc also.  I felt hopeful with her.  Whats going on?  I have been unemployed for almost 2 years because of this. Along with anxiety and panic and agoraphobia.  I feel you should call your doc tomorrow.  Mine told me to call if I needed to.  That is what they are there for.  Please don't hesitate. It will help you somehow.  Are you comfortable with this doc?  Then it will be alright.  Write me back and let me help you if I can, even just to vent.  Big hugs, Nicky

Hi Chelsi and welcome :-) Sounds like your depression is caused by your employment status. Do you live in a big city? Is there an employmeny agency in your area to help you? Maybe you can have somebody do a mock phone call for references and find out what they are saying about you. I know how hard job hunting is Chelsi, it's actually a job in itself. I wish you the best of luck finding one.
Take care, Softy

I do live in a fair size city.  I have registered with several temp. agencies.  I am not getting anywhere there either.  I have had one, one day assignment.  I would love to find someone who would call my former employer for reference but I can't find anyone who will do it for me.  I do have a question about temp. agencies.  Lets say they give you an assignment and you accept.  While doing the assignment some place you have applied at for permanent work calls and wants you to come in for an interview.  How do you handle that?  I have always thought that was the advantage of working temp.  You are able to do the things you need to do.  One temp. co. told me that their clients do not want temp. people takeing any time off to interview for a perm. job.  You want the temp. position so you can be working but you cant afford not to be able to interview for a job you really want.  I can't afford to pass a chance for a perm. job but I also do not want to be black listed with a temp. agency.  I really need to find something.  You are right, I will be better off once I find work again.  I am not good at interviewing either.  My other problem with interviewing is I do not know what to say when asked why I was terminated from my last employer.  Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.  I really appreciate the support I have found here.

That's the bonus of working temp work. I used to work at temp agencies and actually got offered a few permanent jobs via this route but I didn't accept them as I wanted temp work with no committment. If you have an interview on another day, tell the temp agency you aren't available that day. They don't have to know why. Bottom line is you want a permanent job.

When asked why you were terminated from your last employer, I have no idea what you could/should say. Perhaps a little help here people...
Take care, Softy
