Exercise, every day; walk at least but try to get to the gym as well. That will help a lot, to start. Also just reading that doing arts-related things (walking through a gallery, going to a dance performance) can be as good as drugs or therapy in warding off depression. Worth a try, and this time of year there are plenty of free concerts etc.. And of course do all the job-search related things, day in and day out, treat it like a job as they say. Good luck, you will get through this! [ Reply | More ]

Keep hope alive. I know every situation is different but I got laid off when pregnant and managed to land a better job just as my severance was ending (after baby).

Sorry. Just spitballing. I'm really guilty of both things - not wanting to see my Aunt and get involved with that side of the family again - but also wanting to avoid all social contact. When I get invitations to things where I have to work at re-establishing relationships with people I have not seen in a long time, I shut down. I have had a lot of traumatic relationships in my life and I don't want to have any more. I'm sorry if it doesn't make a lot of sense, but I've been burned so many times, and my family in that area just feels like I'm the crab who tried to crawl out of the bucket and they keep trying to claw me back in.
