hi, i'm like so many out there that have lost their jobs in the past year due to the economy and struggles of mental illness. i lived on credit cards for the past 10 months and am now reaching the bankruptcy stage. this year i fell into a deep depression and was hospitalized for two months on suicide watch..still looking for work. i'm having a really hard time accepting bankruptcy, but it's the only option. i'm relatively young (34), but i feel like my life is over, like i have nothing to show for all the work i've put in over the years and all my education. i feel ashamed, i feel like i'm not worth anything. i cry most days and the feelings of 'ending it' come back. i struggle with what i'm worth, it's so tied with money/possession in our society. i would love to hear of any 'coping' stories out there. thanks.
