Go to my camper on the beach, take out my Beretta .9mm, and a picture of my dead wife Victoria-Lynn, and a nice hollow point to do the job right.

Sorry to hear about your current dilemas.
When I'm down I go out and spend money, usually on toys. I don't know why but on most bad days that makes me happy. The problem with that is that I realize that my collection is the one thing that ALWAYS makes me happy, so with that said maybe it's compensating for something else. Maybe if I was truely happy 100% of the time I wouldn't NEED my collection.
I know that you said you were laid off so spending money right now to make you "happy" is not a good idea. Maybe you should try and drown your sorrows with things you already have around the house. Read some books or possibly try to beat a video game that you never finished. Maybe that will help. Other than that try to keep your head up to get through your tough times.
Good luck and best wishes.

Then one day I started looking at pictures of better days. Pictures of vacations we took, pictures when we first bought our house, birthday parties, etc. That made me feel better. But more importantly, it made me set some goals that our life will be back to the way it was no matter what it takes. I started with small things, one day I was at Wal-mart and I bought my son a $2 kite. I surprised him and took him and my wife to the park to fly the kite. We had such a good time and I was smiling and laughing with my family the whole time. It was just like old times. Today I took a drug test for a job. The job will pay about a third of what I used to make, but it's a start.
My advice (and I know it sounds cliche-ish) find your happy place. Try to think of something to make you happy and it all starts there. And promise yourself you will do everything it will take for you and your family to be that happy again. Just remember, God doesn't give you anything you can't handle.

Vicodin and Ambien.
As a matter of fact, I just took an Ambien. Gonna go to sleep Veddy soon.
Hopefully things turn around for you. Remember, when 1 door closes, 2 more open. Even if they are to the women's dressing room and locked, they can still be opened. Just develop a fetish for being slapped by women and you'll be JUST fine.

Talk to someone you're close to. Do something you enjoy doing. Take a nap. Exercise. Those things usually help me.

Sorry to hear that you're having a tough time. I've had family members that have battle depression for years. It seems like they do the best when they have somebody - usually a friend or a professional counselor/psychiatrist to talk with. Hope you can find somebody that you feel comfortable sharing your concerns with.

Hi, I'm a United Methodist Minister and a Reserve Army Chaplain, so I have a bit of experience in helping people deal with this sort of thing.
First, let me say that I'm terribly sorry to hear about your recent set backs with your job, and I hope your child gets better soon. Hang in there.
From a practical standpoint, I think Headman is exactly right. Stay very busy and be productive and proactive about your circumstance.
First, get to work on your resume' and actively seek a new job. Do as much towards that as you can... it will make you feel like you're helping to solve your problems, even if the actual effect is more limited. Make calls, fill out applications, make appointments for interviews... do all that you can. Try to see "finding a job" as your new job for 8 hours a day or so.
Second, exercise regularly. This is the biggest natural stress reliever and depression prescription you have available. Even if it's just taking a good solid walk for 30 minutes a day, it will help a great deal. Do some Cardio like walking or running, and do some anaerobics like Push-Ups and Sit-ups. You don't even need any equipment.
Third, examine your own upbringing and beliefs and invest in your spiritual health. If you were raised in a religious home, you might consider getting more involved with your faith. Religion is a source of strength and a place to find community. Think about how God could help you in this... how is your prayer life?
Fourth, communicate with your family and friends about how you feel. Be careful, your spouse is probably stressed out with these same fears and frustrations, but it's important to be honest and up front about how you're feeling. Let her know that you're in this together, and that you love her, and that you're doing everything you can... and ask her for her input about what she sees as possible solutions. Make a plan together and communicate.
Next, find projects around the house... anything with a tangible result. If the gutter needs fixing, get up there and fix it. If the hedge needs trimming, go trim it. Anything that you can do that has a visible/tangible result will help you to feel like you're doing something worthwhile. You need to see fruits of your labors. Go do something that you can see and say, "There, I did that." Try to involve your kids if they're old enough. Talk with them... if you're depressed, chances are they've noticed. Listen to them tell you their concerns, and be open with them. Don't be distant with your kids... they're worried because they can sense you're worried about something.
I hope that helps. If you need anything, please feel free to pm me. Take care; I'll be praying for you, my friend.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?
