I've been suffering with it that it took a toll on me that I couldn't work and now I'm kind of nervous about getting a job and how do I start? I have a liberal arts degree and I don't know where I can find a job? Where I could actually get health insurance because I'm a diabetic and I need insurance if I need to work. So does anyone have any idea what should I do if I want to get a job if I haven't worked for so long?
I have experienced severe depression myself and it was a struggle to go back to work.
I wanted to sit and do nothing. I was also taking medication that helped but it slowed me down physically and mentally. What helped was my faith in the God Jehovah who gave me hope. This may not seem a reasonable remedy but remember our mental health is connected with our spiritual health. Spirituality includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves and it involves a search for meaning in life. Only the one who created the earth and all that exist on it can give you hope and comfort.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY: Talk to someone—perhaps a friend or a family member—about your situation. That person may be able to help you view your situation in a more balanced way.—Proverbs 11:14. Very important is an accurate understand of what the bible really teach. This teaching is different from most religious teachings even though the bible is used. The difference in gaining accurate knowledge is it helps you understand the real purpose of life and how important you are to the Creator. Pray for this knowledge and God will send the connection to you. If they come to your door listen to the message and accept your personal bible study. Psalm 1:1-3. Look for a job to work couple days a week .It does not have to be in your field of work.
