    I hope that you will keep us posted about this.

    When I was unemployed, I found stories from other people to be a big consolation. The media told me that I needed a better resume. Government told me to retrain for the jobs of the future.

    The only good advice I got was what I could eke out from people who were having the same experience under the current conditions.

    Good luck and stay strong.

      I have been thinking about a diary on it. I've known it was coming for a few months now; this is my third week and it's really starting to sink in. Yesterday I was nearly catatonic.

      When I knew it was coming I started listening to other people's stories as well. And I've stayed on a schedule so far which seems to keep the depression somewhat at bay.

      On the bright side, I took an afternoon nap yesterday for the first time in ages. That was nice.

      P.S. I am not a crackpot.
