hi, display here, just checking in.

today has been another tough day. could not get out of bed until noon. i rationalized that by saying it's the weekend, but i'm really afraid i won't be able to get up during the week this week - and i have some things to do, including a job interview.

i'm also really aware of how isolating this depression has become. my phone rarely rings, in some ways i feel i have isolated myself. i do have this message board, and some other resources online, i guess i just need to say i miss being around people.

i'm also bored to death with being unemployed and not having something to do each day. i do have my activities towards getting a job, but i have great fear that i won't be able to get up and do them.

finally, i just need to say i'm having trouble with my car. i'm not sure if anything is wrong with it, but i'm worried nonetheless. tomorrow i will try and get up and take it somewhere to get it looked at. tuesday is the job interview so there is pressure there.

If it wasn't for this board and my daughter and husband, I'd have to say I'm pretty much isolated myself. I have always like my solo time, but this is getting ridiculous-lol...my sister is coming to visit, but I don't have to be "on" for her. Visiting with others exhausts me and takes a day or 2 to recover physically.

I hope you and your car have a productive week. I am looking part-time and have had no luck but I'm old...I'm sure you'll do great at your interview

Hi Display,Try to have confidence that the intervue will go well. And that you will feel up to going. I think you will be able to make it. I don't think you will sleep in. Set your alarm in time and jump right in the shower. You will feel refreshed and ready to go. This is something that you need to do, so I think it will go well. Best wishes for your job interview.

Hugs, Karen

hello display,
I'm a stay at home mom to a special needs son so I get the isolation.  I do find support groups in the area just to be around people who understand.  I can't really talk to the mom's in the neighborhood because its just not something that would be recieved well.  We do have many people in the group who have been looking for jobs.  Its through Depression/ Bi-polar support Alliance.  DBSA.  you can google it.  I'm pretty sure its national.  I think its important to be around people who understand but most importantly people in gerneral. 
My family has become a bit isolated since my son was diagnosed with bipolar and mild autism.  This forum has been a great way to connect to folks. 
I hope all goes well with your car and your interview.
 
take care,
cookie
