    apparently its the depression that is causing me to hate my job and life so much and i always thought it was my job and life that made me depressed, go figure, it kinda explains it coz theres nothing really wrong with either but i wanna crawl away and hide from both. especially my job for some reason. i can handle my life to a certain degree but i wanna cry at just the thought of working and not just this job... any job, everytime i start looking for a new job it makes me even more depressed and frustrated coz i cant do anything and i dont want to do anything, i feel worthless and completely incompetent. i feel like if i just had the money i could quit and find myself in my own time but where am i gonna get the money??? is that really the answer anyway? would i even find something i liked or was good at? i should just accept that i will have to work for the rest of my life no matter how much i hate it!

    Can so relate to this hun, hate to tell you this but yeah..not working just gives you time to stew in your own juice even more.

    Is there anything you would like doing? Maybe if you found something you loved doing it wouldn't all seem so worthless.

    the trouble is, i dont know what i would like to do and ive been racking my brain at what would be my ideal situation. of course my ultimate dream is (i know it isnt very ambitious) to be a housewife & mother but that doesnt pay the rent unless u have a super rich husband which i dont. i just cant seem to think of what i would be very good at. i feel extremely incompetent.

    Know this feeling too:sad:

    Write down all your strengths and then look at jobs that value those qualities.
    If you like kids maybe thats a way to go?

    easy enough to say but not so easy to write good things about yourself when you dont feel good about yourself. :'-(
