In Despair...

Having lived in another community for just over five years I moved back here following the death of my father back in October. This I did so as to be near my mom and be available for any assistance. I'm glad to be back here as I was not happy where I was living previously, but right now my homecoming has not been so joyous either. For one thing I'm dealing with unemployment; now, in light of my father's passing I have money coming to me to take care of rent and other expenses, but with this comes restlessness and boredom which leads to despair. I know I need to get active with something, but just don't know what or how. There's other issues contributing to this as well and will be addressing all of these with a therapist beginning in just over a week.

Re: In Despair...

It does sound like your missing work. Sitting around not doing anything can get very annoying. Same thing over and over every day, even worse. I don't know what to tell you for the restlessness and boredom, I get that way alot too laying around sick. I'd take that time and go find a career I absolutely loved, if it was me. I would love to have the capability & money to be able to do so. I would almost work for free doing what I loved doing. I only wish.

Hi,
I think I am exactly in the same situation as you, my father passed away early October and I have been here for a month without doing the field of work I was involved in previously. The biggest problem I have though is that if I want to employ myself into business activities full time then I will make a living out of something I am not interested in doing.

Just want to let you know though that you are not alone in this. I am going pretty much the same thing as you.
