My best to you and yours man, while there are no magic words we can give that will wipe the slate clean I can only say is to do your best to keep busy and not focus on the negative aspects no matter how much it tries to rule over your mind.
We all stumble, but we all have the ability to pick ourselves up and carry on.

Do what I did...get active in a church and find your peace with God. I was going through hell a year ago and found myself depressed and wanted to drink all the time. I found God and got saved and things have been 100% better from that day forward.
Remember to pray and that if God cant get you through it, then He wouldnt take you to it.
And my favorite quote of all..."Pray not for lighter burdens, but for stronger backs." Teddy Roosevelt.
Take care my friend,

i hope things are getting better for you for sure! Depression is a real issue and, a tough one to tame (although it can not be done alone). There are a number of qualified people who are more than willing to help if they can...either here or near where you are.
If i can lend an ear at the very least then do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I have counselled and advised numerous people during my time and, that is what my calling (position) in this life is. I do know for sure that GOD is an ever present help in the time of trouble.
We will hope to hear from you sometime soon.

Hey, I know you will get through this. I had my own business and now am trying to get something else going. It's hard to change the way you live, your habits, your income, everything that was once a comfortable pattern and routine becomes moot, and you have to make adjustments everywhere. I think pretty much everyone here has hit it perfectly - keep busy, exercise, projects around the house, a hobby, don't give up, and be open about your feelings with the family. My wife has kept me sane, as have tons of projects around the house. The work I've got going now is enough for the time being but I'm still looking for something better, and she's behind me 100%. If you can keep communication open, and be honest with yourself too, then it's going to work.
You will have days when you can't be bothered to get up and do anything though. On those days just chill out, and instead of getting all gloomy, put in a fun dvd (comedy, animation, whatever) and push your spirits up and get motivated again.
You'll get through it!
note: isn't it cool how much positive stuff has been thrown at you? already 5 pages of support! Not one person saying, "Dude, deth of da line!"
which in this case would have a totally different, and rather dark meaning. Good show 'Tankers!

There is a certain humor in all situations. Cynical, yes. Sarcastic, definitely. But if you accept that things are going to get better than you must also accept the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune in the process.
I strongly recommend the More Than Complete Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy as a gentle read (or reread) for these times, and a perspective that it will take as long as it wants to get better-but when fate tires of you things will turn around for the better.
