    swoopy updated the condition Major Depressive Disorder

    • First symptom: 2001
    • Diagnosis: June 15, 2002

    June of 2000 I married my second wife. We'd been a couple, living separately for about 15 years. We'd both been making pretty good money and waited until our kids (she - 3 girls, me - 4 boys and a stepdaughter) moved out to tie the knot. In early 2001 the dot-com crash happened and I struggled to find work. I was just getting my consulting business started in a visit to Washington D.C. and was there on 9-11. All consulting dried up again. A month later I got hit by a car while riding my bike. I couldn't work for 9 months. We got a small settlement from the driver. I was on pain meds. I spent through my retirement savings. Along about then my depressive symptoms began. I thought it was just Extreme Disappointment, but I couldn't function. Our couples therapist told me I needed to get out of the house and take any job I could find. The therapist on my health plan put me on Prozac. I took a retail job selling outdoor sporting equipment.

    I've been on psych meds ever since but I've gone through the jobless depression cycle 4 times. Now I'm 65 - still pretty healthy - but hard to sell myself in today's Internet market. Add to that we are broke and I've applied for about 50 jobs with only two phone interviews. Looking for a job at REI...again. I have reason to give up hope but every day I try to wake up and tell myself (and my unemployed wife) - "We're going to get through this and come out in better shape." It's pure will power but it's a struggle.

    Oh, yeah. Decided to call my mother and break the impasse. No talk about work or money. Just checking in on how she's doing. I think she was crying a little during the short 5-minute call.

    Gonna spend less time working in my bedroom office. Moving to kitchen table. Will try to make a better 3-minute self-promo video for Elisa's presentation. I'd rather she not used the current gloomy video I shared with her.
