Bad day

Post by Josie on Wed Nov 24, 2010 11:41 pm

Hi I am new to here and am relieved to have somewhere to go online for support.
I have struggled with depression for many years.The last year has been hell as I suffered an injury to my hip and have struggled to cope with all the implications as it will be ongoing.
Cut myself off from everybody - including my partner (played on computer all day) - started smoking again and isolated myself at home (his place) for over a year.
Realised several months ago that hoping cigarettes would kill me and wishing I was dead was not living and I needed to either finish it or move on, so I have tried moving on.
Started by getting out more doing courses, counselling, and regular physical exercise.
Previous work history (quitting) left me with few options to find work so brought a business - the lead up to it and organising was the easy and stimulating part. The hard part has been working through my fear after being isolated for so long and pushing my boundaries to start the business up and get it moving. Have poured much money and physical effort into advertising and promoting and followed ideas suggested by others but have not had much work.
Thought I had a break through last week and went and did a quote for a big job - was contacted today and was told they went with a much cheaper quote.
I am now doubting my ablility to price for jobs, do the work, and keep going with no income.
Living on my savings is making me anxious, Christmas is coming up and starting to feel that if I can't cope with losing a job should I really be doing this? On top of all this my hip has become really sore again and anti inflammatory's are not working.
Help!
I am at the end of my tether.

Thanks for feedback.
It makes sense that I can't expect to get every quote so will just have to expect it. I offered the client a discount if I did less than the hours I had allocated, did it at the fairest price I could so can't do any better than that can I?
Panicked because I am not getting alot of opportunites and that was the first one in two weeks but knew when I started it was going to take time.
Feel alot calmer today and am delivering some flyers to keep promoting my business and will keep moving forward.
Decided the other day to make a day to stop smoking and will stick to it - am going to be a grandmother for the first time early next year and want to be smoke free when I hold this precious baby for the first time.
