I am really stressed out looking for work, and now, I feel everything is hitting me, that has been happening in the past few months. I feel I am down in the dumps, and unable to see the light. Add to that I am getting really stressed, having to look for a job.
 
I went for a group therapy yesterday and I am still depressed!!! mad

Sorry you are having a rough go...I understand the stress of looking for a job...I do not need one (besides where I am at) except that I cant stand where I am and need to find a new job... Hang in there...

you might ask if any government benefits are available

if short of money, always tell the doc

they often give away meds as sample packs to patients who dont have much money

Sorry to hear you are feeling so down.  I'm looking for a job at the moment and it's a real self esteem killer.  No wonder you feel sad.  It's good you are going to group therapy...it can take a while though to not feel awkward so don't beat yourself up about feeling depressed.
It sounds to me like you are doing the best you can right now, hold onto that and lean on your friends at HW. (((hugs)))

I can definitely relate!! My husband has been out of work for 9 months; I have been out of work for 6 weeks.  We keep thinking "next week will be the week", but nothing happens... My husband just said today that he knows there will be an end to this, but we have been saying that for 9 months!! It is extremely frustrating- making me very anxious and down, but I try each day to be grateful for what I do have...

Good luck and keep up the fight!!

Sad, yes it is hard!! I just spent two hours on monster and careerbuilder.  They say looking for a job is a full-time job- it's true!!

I did just sign up with a recruiting firm that has temp and temp-to-permanent positions.  Do you have anything like that in your area?

Keep me posted in your search- keeping you in my prayers!!

((((Big hugs)))) to you all. I know how you all feel. I lost my job two years ago due to downsizing they said but I know it was due to my illness just couldn't prove it so I went from giving interviews to being the one being interviewed. My dr tried to get me to go on disability and I fought him on it and still searched for a year for a job with no luck so I finelly gave in so now I'm fighting for my disability after working for 30 years stright. Life can get so frustrating on us all but I refuse to give up on myself so please keep fighting this and you will pravail.

Hi everyone, I am glad after reading others posts, I know I am not alone. I too lost my job, and it was because of my depression. But I didn't at that time, that I could have gone to the Human Rights... But the thing is I have to prove it and that would not have been possible.

It's hard for me emotionally, and now I am trying to get gov't. benefits. I haven't done that before. And I am seeing my doc. This is causing me anxiety too.

Please give me any input on this?

Hi-Sad-

Just got back from an interview and read your post.  Yes, it is so frustrating trying to find work! Thought my interview went well this morning- but you just never know!!

The best thing you can do at this point is to take care of yourself, and by seeing your doc, you are doing just that!! I actually had not seen my therapist for a while because I felt like I was "all talked out", but when she called just to check on me, I ended up scheduling an appointment and it was good to see her just to "keep my feet on the ground".

Life does throw a lot of curveballs, but somehow we get through them- so hang in there and know that you are not alone!!

I wish you luck with your interview. I know it's onething to go for the interview, and then its after waiting for the outcome is a another...

I was so anxious about getting the medical certificate from the doctor, and anyway finally I got it and went and gave it the nearest centre. But the whole process made me so nervous and anxious. I was rehersing over and over again how I am going to ask for the medical certificate. Its becoming so difficult getting through a day for me. ((((UGH)))))

Sorry for venting.... At least I know of others who are in the same situation....
