Three months ago I lost my job and am still unemployed. Apart from dealing with the lack of work, I have suffered clinical depression which has been exacerbated by trying to survive on unemplyment benefits. We are told to exist on our savings before we get paid any benefit, so now, after using up my emergency money I am left living on about $36.00 a day. I manage most weeks but it's been tough and has certainly not done anything to improve my mood. 

I have never had a hard time getting a job like I am now - every job I apply for has at least 250 applicants, so even getting a cover letter and resume read is an uphill battle.

I was a member of Care2 some years back and not sure what ever happened to my membership - I probably got too busy & opted out. Now that I am back, I am so thankful.

My time here feels as though it is well spent, but more importantly, every comment, every message and every green star I receive makes me feel worthwhile and for that, I want to thank everyone who has taken time to notice me and the small contributions I make.

For feeling a part of something big, to being able to share with like minded people, my life is happier. The brightest of blessings to you all.
