Hello ! New here :)

The description of the group was just perfect. Im having a really hard time with being seperated and filling out the divorce papers and starting a new life. Im terrified to get a job, go to college, lose my kids, live alone, all of it. I went into a very deep depression for a few months but managed to get out of that hole w the help of a new friend. I have no family for support and only two real friends( we three now) but they all live 200 + miles away and I can never afford to go visit :(. I hate being alone and am having a really hardtime w that. I need to just relax and get my life straightened out but im so miserable being alone all the time. I need to get a job but im scared and im so depressed im afraid ill be a basketcase at work all day. Id like to go to college but i cant kick myself into gear. Its just all so hard and im so sad and doubting myself.

Hi ellepm

Thanks for finding us and you're very welcome!

Are you doubting your own abilities, in terms of enrolling in school and getting a new job? If getting a job is something that you have to do for financial reasons, then talking to a career counselor is a good idea because facing that alone is very difficult. They can do an aptitude test so see what work might suit you the best.

Is your divorce very acrimonious? Are you fighting with your ex over child custody? A court advocate can help you and look into this site: http://divorcesupport.about.com/

We hope you write back and please stay strong. You will get through this!
