Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, from your complaints it is suggestive that you are suffering from Depression , which has developed owing to the stressful and emotionally traumatic recent past events such as death f a near and dear one , loss of job , alzheimer diagnosis of mother and stress related personal and family issues .
I would want to tell you that the feeling of hopelessness and helplessness, and the inability to feel pleasure and social withdrawl and pessimistic / negative thoughts that you are currently experiencing all all the typical features of A Depressive disorder , which needs to be treated promptly , so that you can get back to your normal confident and zestful self , and turn the tables around , meaning get a good job and cope with the everyday stress better .
YOu see , it is impossible for any of us to stop stressful and traumatic things to happen in our lives , but what is within our control is to cope with such situations calmly and overcome he odds like a true winner , and for all this to happen you need a healthy and fresh mind , and so as long as depression is there , you will not be able to think clearly and objectively and even good opportunitiies will be missed .
So, i suggets that before thinking about your hiuse rent , or mother's illness or any other thing , just consult your gfamily doctor and get your self started on 1 ani depressant such as Paxil CR ( paroxetine controlled release ) or Effexor XR ( venlafaxine extended release ) , any one of these two shall be started , since either of these two are long acting drug formulations , so only single morning only dose is required , and continue this anti depressant for 2-3 months , and i am quite sure thatyou will come out of depression . The effects of the anti depresant will start showing on your depressed state of mind after 1 -2 weeks , it is just complete recoveru from depression can take 2-3 months , so kindly continue on it for this much time ,and you will yourself realize the improvement in state of mind.
I suggest you discuss the the use of the anti depressant with your doctor , and let him start you on any 1 of them and also let him decide the dose of the chosen drug.

I hope this helps...
I wish you all the best .and rapid recovery.
