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.
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.
