    I thought it would be good of me to actually open up here and say that I am suffering from depression. I am not too happy in life and question a lot of things in life, namely mistakes I have made.

    Basically, I was made redundant a few months back from a well paid and respected job. I loved it there and felt that I was becoming more of a man. My family came down from abroad and I went on holiday with them abroad for a couple of weeks - literally one of the best summers I have ever had!

    Now, I am unemployed and struggling to get a job. It is getting worse everyday and I have recently started smoking weed like 2 times a week and drinking with people. I don't go a lot because people will question what I am doing in life. "Yeah I'm unemployed, even though I have a First Class Computing Degree - no ****** wants me". Society expect you to have a job and if you are unemployed it looks so bad.

    No one, not even my family understand what it is like.
