Karen and your doc is right, very important to get out and interact with people. Once of the main reason I feel is so God and work in your life. If you say home, he does not have much to work with.
Volunteer work is a great idea, I volunteer for local animal rescue group. I am a driver and transport the animals to new homes or foster homes or from the original locations. It is part time and I have lots of practice interacting with nice and not so nice people.
You could call a school, library, animal shelter, Volunteers of America, People shelter, Church and the list goes on. There is no shortage of help needed in this world, and it can open doors to other places in time. It looks good on a resume and makes nice references.
I know it is hard, try now to worry so much about the money, I have been out of work since 3/2011. some how we make the mortgage and float the utilities till next pay and nothing has been shut off. I keep looking something will come along.
Hang in there and get outside where life is.
Be still and know there is Peace.
