My anxiety has recently increased! Finding a job out here where I live is so hard. I am not far from finishing school, but I have to work to support myself, but I can't find anything. I mean I could do factory work, but I know I'd be miserable and quit. I feel like a LOOSER! I can't sleep anymore, stomach aches, and I barely eat. Everyone says be patient, but I just want to feel better about myself now. sad

Hi Pink,

Would it help you to get a factory job to start with whilst you looked for something else. I know that factory work is not the most exciting job in the world... I worked in a factory for 6 months making cardboard boxes (I go around telling people I was a corrugated fibreboard technician... it sounds better! tongue ) I know that finding a job can be tough, especially when you are young and not being able to find things makes anxiety worse which is what makes me think taking factory work on a temp basis might be benificial.

What do you think?

I agree with Darren,taking any job until you find a better one will help you alot. At least it is some type of paycheck coming in.

Also,have you checked with your local temp agencies?

I personally know how hard it is to find a job,it took me 1 1/2 yrs to find the one I am at (total dead end one)... I had moved from a big town to a small one and was regretting it so much as far as the job market.


Something will come along,you just have to take it one day at a time.

thats what happened to me too. went from a more populus area to a very small out of the way bedroom town 45 minutes NW of Boston.

I'm going to have to just take any job at this point. My anxiety is just rising and I am nervous I will break again and end up back in the hospital. I'm not eating, barely sleeping, crying at the drop of a hat. Something has got to give.

I barely have anyone left. My oldest friends decided they couldn't handle me being depressed anymore, it wasn't like I was living at their houses or calling them 24/7. They just don't get it, neither do I sometimes. It breaks my heart to know they haven't said a word to me in nearly three months.

I must focus....JOB...JOB!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sad eyes confused

You need to try to focus on eating,even if it is just alot of small snacks during the day. You have to keep your strength up in order to find a job and try to heal from the depression.

As far as your friends,it is not really all of their fault. The ones that do not have depression do not understand it,and I think they become frustrated with themselves because they do not know how to help you.
Yes it does suck,and hurts alot....

Keep us posted and Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with Shy... you need to focus on eating so you can keep your strength up.
 
People who dont have depression have a hard time understanding how it feels to stuggle to drag yourself out of bed in the morning. Its frustrating for you because you cant make them understand and its frustrating for them because they dont know how to help you. All you can do is try to have patience with each other
