Since becoming unemployed two months ago (or was it three months ago), I have gradually begun to lose interest in doing anything.
I apply for jobs, just to not get any response. I go to career counselling for additional help. I'm looking into going to school. But until something happens....
There is a lot of hours in a day and when you don't work or have any money to do anything you tend to sleep a lot more, watch more television and generally do less and less. And the less you do, the less you can do - I have no energy.
The idea of going for a walk wipes me out. I supose its a form of depression, but I think everybody goes through this when they are not working.
I was planning on using this time to focus on my weight loss but so far I have been failing. Maybe I should rent a campsite for the next month and just spend some time isolated on a beach. At least I'd get away from the television.
As it is, I stay awake until 4am, sleep until 12pm and take a 2 hour nap at 4pm.
People who just got off work are probably thinking, "poor you, you get to do nothing well I have to work my butt off to make a living." I get that. I know I sound ridiculous.
I got to get out of this funk and get back on track.
