Hi all,
I have suffered from depression in the past I suffered two years with it.  I didn't shower much, didn't take an interest in Gymnastics which was my life. 
Now I have an illness preventing me from living my life fully.  I was a Registered Nurse working normally then I got an inner ear illness that leaves me feeling dizzy 24/7 unless Im asleep.  I have had to move from my appartment where I was living independantly to living with my sister, defacto and 3 kids. 
Its not an ideal situation at all.  I want to work and cannot this leaves me feeling so depressed.  I wonder if I should move back with my mother to a small country town with very few job prospects.  I think I can do part-time work.  Or should I stay in the city live with sister and emotionally abusive defacto, knowing I CAN get a job its just a matter of how long I can work for. 
I just don't know anymore. Im ready to cry

Hi Ya,
That inner ear thing can cause a lot of problems,
you are in a difficult situation, but, at least in the country you can learn to cope with your problems, and if you get a part time job, then put some effort into learning something that may lead to you being able to support yourself, often something creative will give you both satisfaction in yourself and may lead to a financial reward too,
Being around violence is not going to help you at all, city life has its ups, but when you are experiencing stuff like this, then having a place where you can walk and be a part of nature, can help find you some serenity

Just discovered you are from Australia, why not go and do some fruit picking, its boring, but its outside, you meet lots of great peeps, and while you may not make a huge living its fun, and you get to do the hours you want,
good to see someone else from this side of the world

I think moving to your parents would be good for you , life in the country is simple and you can enjoy the senary and relax etc. once you are out of deppresion you can go where you want and live independly or find a partner etc.
