Yes, my depression is so severe that I feel physically ill and can't get out of the house some days. But part of that is the fact that I won't have a roof over my head that much longer. I am broken and defeated, which has made my sex drive non-existant. I fear that people at their breaking point may resort to drastic measures. Keep in mind that these are hypothetical scenarios and I am not planning or condoning these actions. But some may blame the rich and target them for execution or maybe even suicide bomb wall street since they are the ones who cheated us out of a chance for a decent life. You never know what desperation can drive people to do.
I got laid off 6 weeks ago. I was given a modest severance and had little else to draw on. To keep my sanity I've stopped listening to news, I make an effort to find something to laugh at EVERY DAY, and I take full responsibility for my current lack of financial resources. I accept sleep when it comes, and I don't fret if I find myself awake in the middle of the night (after all, at least I don't have to go to work).
just wanted to put my words down, need a support group
Yes, I am feeling anxious about what the future holds. However, I must live just for today. Today I am safe. Yes, I feel depressed because we are losing our house which we tried so hard to keep. I am irritable, definately. A lot of good that does me. It's a choice. Sometimes I choose to dwell and have a pity party, but I have to keep them short. I think mostly, I am angry that my husband cannot find work, frustrating. I want to find a support group for the tough economic times. For now, I will post my note, hope it helps someone. Try and focus on the positives even when you want to dwell on crap. Allow time for dwelling, then allow time for happiness.
I suffer from bipolar which is bad enough,but with the current economic crisis i feel worse.i lost my job and ive been struggling to find a new one even though i have a qualification.i cry non stop i get so depressed that ive tried killing myself.they say my country will recover earlier from the recession because we host the 2010 soccer worldcup..i try to stay positive but its so hard.food prices are unbelievable.good luck to everyone during this tough time tho
i m living from month to month and that can be frustrating. my son goes to school next month and i cant do much, which is upsetting also. i try to make the best of it. i work part time and i m not getting any attention when i post my resume online.
I'm fine, I find that not listening to the news really helps. I go to work and go out and play on the weekends just like I did before the end of the world. Folks have a little less money, some of moved to take on jobs and that's certainly rough but life really does go on. In times of strain attitude really is much more important than intellect.
yes depressed anxious not sleeping. For the past few years been like this. Is so expensive to live in Britain now.
The wages have never gone up but gas, electric very expensive now, food gone up and rent
Because our landlord depends on the income and needs it monthly we have found we cant manage so we have to leave our rented home. So we decided to sell everything we got and emigrate abroad. Just cant afford to live here anymore
my husband feels a failure!
