    Hi,

    I've basically been battling depression ever since I was made redundant two months ago. It hasn't been easy living with my parents more often - as in I've always lived with them but when I was employed I wasn't at home a lot. The first few weeks post redundancy weren't too bad as I was relaxing and what not. However, within weeks bad habits starting forming and with more and more job rejections I felt that I was hopeless. I resulted to smoking weed on a weekly basis and what not - but I eventually gave up after a couple of weeks.

    Now I am finding it harder to interact with people and don't have a lot of friends as I once did. I feel that when I had a job I felt more respected. Nowadays the first question people ask is what are you doing in life?

    Sorry to hear this, I had to apply for 200 jobs before I got my one. I also don't have that many friends but there are ways of battling depression. Stay strong

    Yeah I know what it is like with jobs, I've had to apply to similar numbers and go through telephone interviews. Was unsuccessful but I am still going.

    Im going to be hitting the gym more often and maybe take up self defense classes. I used to learn urban self defense but due to chest injuries I gave up - I was a lot weaker physically and mentally when I first took it. A lot stronger now
