Desperately Unhappy

I am not looking for pity with this post, but I feel so desperately unhappy.

Nothing brings me delight anymore, and I feel hollow and empty inside.

Tomorrow, I am scheduled for 2 job interviews @ the same company. After 3 years of unemployment and many interviews that were unsuccessful, the 2 tomorrow just seem like 2 more interviews. I don't even feel excited about them.

All I seem to want to do anymore is lie in bed whether or not I actually sleep.

    I can understand why you are down.. But if anytime, right now is to pick yourself up and go for those interviews as if they were the last jobs on the face of the earth.

    Having a job, keeping busy, sometimes is very good medicine for all of us.

    As far as the empty hollow feelings... What was it last that filled you with joy and made you dance with the stars?

    Find that and you can do it again and again and again

  • Julie:

    So many of us on this forum share your feelings. I am one. It is absolutely normal considering the absolutely abnormal physical condition that we experience.

    As best you can, approach the interviews with a positive attitude. You never know what's possible.

    Good luck.

  • Hi Julie. How did your interviews go?
    Winter is a hard time for me and I have to make a huge effort to keep myself busy, otherwise I get into a rut that scares me senseless. It's been a rough winter here even with mild temperatures.

    Thinking of you & wishing you well.
  • Julie, I notice you come here and help others that is a special gift you have, I wish I could have done that, you need to show me how, knowing you are unhappy and expressing it here is important for you and us, we are here to help in all our knowledge, understanding and care, try to focus on the things you can change, start small and make success your objective.

    Have you spoken to your doctor, the words you use infer you have been feeling like this for some time so well done in asking for help.

    What can we do for you ? how did it go today.
    Take care and good luck, keep posting.
