27 yr old male College Graduate from a good university. Had a good paying job after graduating. Lost job because I got cancer at 24. Went to Jail for a harmless DUI a year and a half later but managed to keep my job. Lost job because of economy. Drivers License revoked (even to this day) and suffered through a harsh probation period. Been looking for work for a year now. Been on several interviews, applied to over 500 jobs. Dont wanna work with illegal immigrants in a sweaty kitchen. Side note: at the time i got cancer I didnt have health insurance, and i still dont have health insurance. So that fact along with all my student loan debt puts me at a total of about $200,000 that is ruining my credit and making it harder to find a job. Ill never have any control over my life.

25. Female. Graduated with a BS degree. Can't find a damn job. The problem with me is not getting an interview but actually getting hired. Six interviews and still no jobs!! Working at a stupid clothing store for almost five years and still gets paid six cents above minimum wage. I got a called for an interview next week and the person said she will email me the time of the interview but she never did. I don't even know if I Should call her and ask. I feel so discouraged from the previous interviews. I hate interviews!! I get so nervous that I say things that doesn't even make sense. Even though if I practice the day before or so, I still get so nervous. People my age are either married, getting married or having babies. Or having a nice career and making money. And me?? Living in the same life situation as I did four years ago. No improvement whatsoever. I Only have few hundreds in my account!! Im getting so depressed. I just want to hide in my
Room......crying doesn't even make me feel better anymore. I dont even know what does..I feel blank.....and hopeless...

I'm 29 years old single women. i don't know how to put it across what i am going through. life has never been a bed of roses for me. my childhood sucked. my parents got divorced when i was 6 years old. i stayed with my mother and 2 brothers, m the middle child. my mother always loved and favored my elder brother. i was a lonely and fat kid. i had no friend no one wanted to talk to me cause i was fat and came from a broken family. my own brother use to ignore me in school, as if i was an embarrassment factor for him. i wasn't a brilliant student either i always managed to just pass out. i was always interested in music however my mother never encouraged me. i never had any other talent. i was wasted. I didn't complete my graduation cause i took a drop from college in my final year and started working to support my family, cause my brother wanted to complete his masters.my love life sucks, in fact i don't have a love life. I've been in relationships but nothing clicked, cause they all are attracted to my personality, m tall, average looking( that's what i think) and i smoke, i drink etc. I've always been an easy going person, though m reserved and shy. i m a real loner, and ppl take my this quality for an attitude problem. I've never cared what ppl think about me. i have always been loyal in friendship however i have always been betrayed by my friends. my job was going great that was the only thing that use to make me happy as i was always appreciated by my bosses and my team. however due to some circumstances i had to quit my job as a team manager. and now I'm struggling to find a job, it's been 6 months that am jobless. my family has stared treating me like an outsider.whatever saving i had i gave it to my mother and now I'm penny less.my life sucks!!! i got no job, no social life and no support from my so called family. i don't know why m writing this may be cause m bitter,m jaded and m alone and also i don't have any one to talk to.

This is my story. four years ago, life was pretty good. I was married to a man whom I considered to be my soul mate. A man I was so in love with. We did everything together he treated me like a princess. I had a good job and we had been married for five years and built a beautiful home together. I was so happy and life was so good. Then one day my husband asked me to log onto his computer and send a copy of his CV to him so he could apply for a job that he was interested in. So I logged on to his computer and found the file marked "MarK" and when I opened it, I didn't get his CV I got a series of short films, home made, of my husband going down on one of the women he worked with, oh boy what a complete shock. So I sent him a copy of it, I was so upset, that he jumped into his car and drove straight home from work. Telling me its not what you think it is, how can one be mistaken in thinking anything else, that that is my husbane going down on someone who was not me, but a female that he worked with. Nope no mistaking there. That was the beginning of the end. I then found out that my darling husband had been cheating on me for years, and his first affair was three months before he married me, and had a new female every year, five in five years, no bad hey. So we went to marriage counselling and he made all sorts of promises to me, and we tried to rebuild the relationship. didn't work, he just kept having affairs, so I kicked him out. He now ...

I am a single middle age overweight white male. Mildly handicapped. I am in the last demographic that employers would look. Forget that I have an IQ above 140. That my body was damaged by a drunk driver when I was fighting a fire at age 30. That since that day in 1984 I haven't had one pain free day. There are still many ways I could contribute to society. But to employers, I am an unhireable. I have a lifetime of skills and experience. Does not matter. We are getting dangerously close to a society like the one in the movie, Logan's Run. Or even Soylent Green. If you are over a certain age you become useless to society and should be terminated.

Where to begin?
my dad used to be a member and custodian of a church, you know, keeping it clean?
I used to help him, i was 12 or maybe 14 at the time.
He used to regale me with stories of his conquest of women, i was impressed because he was getting all the girls and having sex with them. Incidentally, they were around the same age as i was and he was around 40 years old.
One day he up and tells me about the great times sexually, he was having with a girl i was sweet on and was trying in my fumbling way to have a relationship with.
He knew i was sweet on her, maybe he was trying to motivate me?
Doesn't matter, i couldn't look at her anymore after that.
During this time i was being mercilessly bullied at school, it seemed no one was willing or able to help me.
My solution was to play hooky (skip school) until i was old enough to quit.
which is exactly what i did.
A couple of years, lots of hard drugs later, I realized i was getting nowhere fast and decided to go home to the parents and try to get myself together.
I was 18 at that time.
Only to discover that my dad had been having sex with my younger sister since she was about 5 or 7. My mother divorced him at this rate and i stayed on with her for a couple years. The drug habits were hard to give up, so naturally i feel on my face again.
I decided that it was a cold ,hard world and i better get tough if i wanted to survive,,so i studied tang so do and everythi...

I am so sick of my life right now. Ever since September 2011, I haven't been able to find a job. I have sent off more than a hundred applications and nothing has eventuated. I am college educated with 2 degrees and have plenty of reputable work experience.
On top of that my fiancee was made redundant from his job. I have creditors calling me everyday hassling me about when im going to pay this and that.
Finally last week a firm, made me an offer which I said I would take. I waited for the the paperwork to arrive and after waiting and waiting I decided to finally folllow up on it.
Their answer? "oh...we are going to wait to interview a few more people" WTFFFFFF why the heck did you ask me to start on Thursday then????
After feeling desolate and defeated, I gathered up my inner strength to keep trying. I did a few more interviews here and there.
Yesterday I had a phonecall and the company offered me the job. Neither the pay or the job itself was perfect but i thought that now is not the time to pick and choose so I accepted. They promised to have the paperwork ready for me today.
An hour ago, they called me up stating that they have decided to retract the offer. How bad can my luck be. I am sick of this life. Im sick of trying and nothing working out. Sick of doing all the right things by people and getting screwed over. Feel like throwing in the towel!!!!!

Company made me redundant 3 years ago and it's all been downhill since then.
Marriage broke up through affair, now I live in a shitty rented room and do whatever scraps of work I can get my hands on, but the economy is terrible.
I can't even get a job interview.
Have a girlfriend but she is very self-serving and I obviously don't realise the luck I have in that she wants to be with me.
I have depression that kills my motivations and makes me feel the victim of the whole world all the time.
I try therapy but I am a born liar and I can never tell enough truth to make it useful.
I really hate myself and hate having to be me every day. I just want to get away from me.

i'm a pretty good looking 20 year old girl, and i can't remember the last time i smiled, and it truely felt genuine. getting out of bed is the hardest thing in the morning. my boyfriend of 3 years dumped me today too, which just makes me feel more suicidal than i feel every single minute i breath. i gave hime everything, paid for evyerhthing, i was the best girlfriend...ok, sometimes i was crazy, but come on, i'm a girl, we are nuts. i can't find job, NOT EVEN WENDYS WOULD HIRE ME. i don't have a crimal record and i graduated high school, i went to college for a few semeters, AMD I STILL CANT FIND A FUCKING FULL TIME JOB. i'm considering stripping. i hate living at home with my parents. i have no car. all my friends hate me now for who i became when i was with my ex. i have no one. my exs cock was so big that it fucked my pu$$y up FOREVER, i was hoping to marry him so i wouldn't ever have to feel uncomfortable around someone else naked. i will NEVER have sex again. i sit home all day, 24/7 getting high, and when i can't afford a bag of maryjane, i'll huff paint just to ease my anixety and depression. sometimes i wish i had to courage to just jump in front of a train, or cut my wrists 'long ways' instead of 'side to side.' i'm to pu$$y to kill myself, so i'm just going to be this miserable person the rest of my life. thanks d.j.a, you FUCKED UP MY LIFE. he would make me beg for money outside of stores or threaten to leave me. he made me do it so much and in the town i live in, that i;m now known as the town crackhead, and i've never even smoked it before. he would force me to make so much money that it came down to me prostituting myself. i hate myself for that more than anything else. I'M AT THE LOWEST POINT OF MY LIFE, AND I CAN'T GET THE FUCK OUT OUT OF THIS FUNK! i just want to die.

I have had a hard life and am still miserable and donít know what to do besides cry. I know men are not supposed to cry but I feel so empty inside. I feel so betrayed by others. I was in the military and wished I had stayed in but now Iím too old to go back in. I have had many jobs but could never keep them long enough. I either got laid off or let go. I am so embarrassed. I went to school and got an education and have a degree but itís useless. Iíve applied for hundreds and hundreds of jobs. Iím either overqualified or donít have any experience or am too old. I have been betrayed over and over again and I am still so naïve that I tend to trust everyone. Itís a bad trait I have from my mother who is so honest and trustworthy that she trusts everyone. I had a good job with great money but my boss was racist and I had to put up with it. Even some of my coworkers were racist. One day when I had enough I spoke up and tried to stand up for myself after I was belittled and humiliated and cussed out in front of my coworkers. Human resources heard about it but they did nothing about it. The racism and bullying continued and I put up with it because I needed my job. After I spoke up things were not the same and I was looked at and called the rat for speaking up. I also found out that the boss and this other employee who I truly though was my friend were in together racking up overtime and splitting it. It was hard to prove but he was the only one who was authorized to do overt...

I was laid off from a good job in 2009. Almost 3 years later I cant find a job. I am 48 yrs old. I have been selling things on ebay to make the bills. But I don't have much left. I am single (ex-wife left me 15 yrs ago). I have no health insurance, my credit is shot, living in a 1b 1b apt, no savings, no 401k (cashed and spent in 2010), no children. I was engaged to a beautiful woman in 2009 but she broke things off in 2010.
This is not how I planned things would go at my age. I used to live in a beautiful area of the country and life was so good back 20 years ago. Now I feel trapped and imprisoned by my situation that I really didn't have alot of control over. I have never done drugs, or been in trouble with the law, I always have tried to do my best in all things. It seems I'm getting my butt kicked in life for really no reason.
As a boy I grew up in a severely abusive household but thought I overcame that awful part of my life at 18 yrs old and was well beyond being subjected to emotional pain and abuse. What has happened to me in the last few years is driving me way down again. I feel like I am living in an invisible jail cell. This is not the way to enjoy living by any stretch.

I'm really fat, extremely lazy, and live at home with my parents. At the moment, I am job-less. I don't mooch off my parents at least - I don't spend any money since I don't go out. My family is all the same. We are all lazy, self-centered, and put each other down to help our egos since they are all extremely low. I've worked in healthcare since I was 18. I'm 22 now and its the only job I can get - my employers and patients love me, but I hate it! Old people treat us aides like complete shit. We are basically slaves to patients and nurses. We wipe their shit, take care of dead people, do the nurses job, etc. And they whine...sooo much...I'll put the ladies in 5 different shirts because NONE of them are good enough...and she'll end up wanting the first one she tried on. They constantly tell me "Hunny, lose some weight because you're so pretty, but no man will marry a portly girl like you" Truth, but BITCH - you don't think I know this?! I can't do it anymore. My family treats me like shit. My dad despises me. Literally, he gets grossed out being by me - & I don't smell, I checked. He constantly talks about committing suicide because he hates his life and family...and I try to be so nice to him? I used to be thin, but my boyfriend at the time was abusive and called me fat (I weighed like 130lbs) and gross..NOW I actually AM fat and gross. I have not ONE single friend. I get nervous leaving the house because I hate myself so much. I feel like everyone looks at me because I'm pathetic.

I just feel so hopeless about myself, and I've just had enough. If it wasn't for my mom I'd have killed myself already, but I could never put her through that. I'm a university graduate from a well recognised school, have had several jobs in the past where I always did well. I used to consider myself a very bright person, full of potential. I had dreams and goals, and hope. I gave those up the moment I realised I had no real potential.
I've applied for over 200 jobs in the last month. Nothing. Interviews at about 5/200 that went no where. I'm applying for entry level work. I'm applying for anything I can find. I long ago gave up of finding a job I'd actually enjoy, now I simply need some income. Nothing.
I've worked hard for everything I've had in my life, nothings ever been handed to me. I've worked since I was 16, I've never not had a part time job. I paid for my own education and worked long hours and late nights at horrible jobs just to get by. I've never had a break, I've never had something handed to me. I thought that would help me in the future. I guess not.
All around me people are starting careers. When I asked them how they found the job they respond "my uncles company" or "my dad's the executive". Ha. Must be nice. My dad just got laid off.
I want to keep trying but after today (and another embarrassing rejection) I'm giving up. I have no future, there's no point to me being here anymore. Once my mom is gone I will go too; me not wanting to hurt her is the only reason I'm still alive. I hate myself and I hate who I'm becoming; a nobody.

A year ago I was doing ok. I had a great job and enjoyed what I was doing. I have now relocated to be with my six year old daughter, but have not found a job. I keep interviewing for jobs but no offers. Financially, my house is being foreclosed on and I barely have money for food and I think about suicide every waking hour. I'm close to 45 years old, graduated from college and considered to be attractive and in shape. I cant catch a break. I cant get sales jobs that I am more that qualified for. I'm beginning to lose faith. I've written a couple of suicide notes and have cut myself in the neck with a blade. My daughter is the only reason Im alive, but I can not offer her anything.

I don't have a car, because I don't have money. I don't have a job, because no one will hire me. I don't have a license, because I suck at driving. I have a bad sense of direction and therefore never know where I am going. I have no friends. I wasn't allowed to have friends as a child, and now I can't seem to make (or keep) any as an adult. I never hung out with anyone; even when people ask, I have to say no because I'm jobless and carless. I've never fallen in love, I never had a S.O. I've never even been on a date. I'm incredibly isolated. I have nothing going for me right now, even my education isn't enough.
And I'm 24. I have zero experience. I see all the people on facebook getting jobs, getting married, and buying houses, and I feel so behind. I watched my little cousins grow up, and I feel like they already know so much more than me in love and life. It's so pathetic; I feel like I'm struggling just to meet these basic things. Sometimes, I wish I was never born.

I'm 29yo, and unemployed I had to move back in with my dad after I came home from Iraq because my wife moved another guy in the house and had a kid. I have a girlfriend but we don't get along at all she gets pissed off over nothing all the time starts screaming at me and then turns everything around like I'm the one being so mean and she is just the poor victim. My ex-wife blocked my phone number because when my children came to visit I didnt have my 8yo daughter in a car seat so Im an asshole as a result I haven't talked to my children in over a year. I have alot of debt and no money to pay it. I'm so depressed I hardly leave the house, and I don't talk to any of my friends anymore. I just don't know how long I can do it anymore I try and try but somehow I always seem to srew everything up.

Yep, I got a college degree. Nope, I have not had a job in three years. I live with my parents. Can't date or do anything. I see everyone else working and moving forward, but not me. The only pleasure i get out of life is reading about people who are worse off than me on this site. It brings a smile to my face, then i leave comments that are meant to be funny but, no one cares. i will spend the entire friday night reading these stories to cheer up. i hate life

I'm 53 years old and I haven't had a job in almost 3 years. My sister supports me, but that will come to an end soon. You see, my only child took her own life on December 10,2009. She was only 18 years old. I can't cope with life any more. It's cruel and vicious. Since she died I don't care about my life any more. Why should I? I tried to take my life but my sister woke up and heard me fall. She saved my life and I was pissed. My daughter wrote me a suicide letter and asked me to cotinue living. She begged me to take care of myself and that she would be waiting for me when my time comes. Why can't the time be now. I want to go be with her because life is too effen hard.
