Why does a person crave for food when depressed?
I want everyone (regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity, social class, education level, occupation, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity) to get along. Trump’s presidency has divided us all, but many of us don’t realize it. I am hurt that this country made the decision it did in 2016. I want my children to grow up in a society where equality is emphasized. It sadly isn’t anymore. I’m also saddened knowing the economy is taking a slow downturn. Forecasters predict a recession by 2021. My children will have graduated college by then. I fear for their futures. Wages have remained largely stagnant and aren’t keeping pace with inflation, healthcare sucks because Trump has gotten rid of many components of ObamaCare, etc, etc. I just want Trump gone. I want to feel ok again. It’s hard not to have a full-on panic attack everyday.
So I’m 19 and I have credit card debt. Recently, I was in an accident that caused my right ankle to break, and I dislocated my left kneecap, and fractured my left wrist. I had to quit my job because it was very physical and I had no way of completing my job. I made ends meet for 9 weeks by using money in my savings, selling things around my house, and putting things on my credit card. I tried to live as frugual as humanly possible, but I still ended up maxing out my $ 700 credit card. I finally could get another job, and all new employees don’t get paid until after 4 weeks of being there… so I have no idea what I’m going to do for the next 3 weeks. My credit card bills is over a month late, and the company calls me multiple times a day, and I explain to them that I have EVERY intention to pay every dime off the card. I just don’t know what to do. I blew through my college savings, so Idk what to do. I don’t have anyone to turn to. Any advice? how do you cope with depression? I’m not looking for sympathy, just advice.
