I am 42 and am depressed and angry and overwhelmed. With the real estate decline I lost my entire networth (but I feel I am rebuilding that) my issue appears to be that years ago my ex husband did something illegal. This was reputaton destroying and resulted in folks putting signs on the lawn, driving by, playing ding dong ditch and my losing job opportunities, everyone moved out of the rentals, neighbors talked about us and me and in general it was VERY BAD. I isolated myself and have never told anyone. I just dropped off the face of the earth. I finally feel I am coming out of that 'hole' but over the past 4 years have not worked (have a job now but job has no social opportunity) and have dropped 100% of my social contacts. I do not know how to get (thsi sounds so stupid, and insane. I feel like a total failure) I do not know how to 're-engage' and make friends and the thought of going to church or contacting people I knew before is hard because I was doing so well. I drop off the face of the Earth. now everyone in the world has passed me by and I feel like such a total ailure because I lost everything and am starting over and I feel like such an idiot, failure and stupid... but I know the absence of social contact makes me very down and I find myself once again getting VERY down and 'stuck'.. not doign anyything at all. I am looking for (not go see a counselor.I do) but what can I DO (physically do to help me re-engage). Thanks

I wonder whether you would like to continue waiting for an answer…hopefully it won’t take too much longer. Please let me know, and I will continue my search. If you’d prefer not to wait, please tell me, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
