I have been unemployed since Sept 2011 and its SOO frustrating. I have been applying and applying and trying to stay positive and encouraged, but now I'm getting tired. Money has ran out and bill collectors are calling like crazy, 3 kids, separated, and just plain 'ol tired!! It's hurtful to look on fb and see family and friends getting jobs and buying cars and I just feel stuck!! So I don't answer the phone when people call, I just kinda keep to myself because I don't want to seem like a
Debbie Downer to some ppl. Anybody been in a rut like me? What did you do to get over this hard time? I can't give up, I don't have no choice but to keep moving, but right now I just want to scream, break some stuff and run away...If you have words of encouragement, that will be nice as well, Thank you!

I was stuck and totally screwed like that before the economy really started sucking. Now that everybody else is having hard times, my family is actually doing quite well. I also try to keep my mouth shut and not talk about my good fortune. You find out who your friends are when you are having a hard time. I hope things turn around for you really really soon. It can happen.
