New to the group. I've been anxious since I was 12, depressed since 17, and now at 30, my life is officially off-track. Went to law school, had a nervous breakdown, couldn't take the bar, and now, almost three years later, I have no job, little hope, and living with my parents. Rewind 7 years - double major summa cum laude college graduate with an awesome LSAT score. How did it all go so horribly wrong and how do I now start afresh? Oh- and sending out resumes for any job under the sun, nothing - not even a nibble of interest. Not sure I could work right now even if the job landed in my lap. I implore again, how do I start afresh?

Hi, An_, Although all experience's are not the same, I've been through a pretty heavy spiral myself. Took me a long time to hit bottom and an even longer time to start climbing back up.
I definately was not able to work. Didn't know what to do. Like you, I lost all hope. What got my head working again was going to school. I pretty much worked my way through various continuing ed. programs at a university and kept my brain going in a low stress, positive environment. Each class completed gave me more confidence and hope. I'm still no where near where I was career wise, but do have hope again and have regained confidence to re-enter my old field. Hope this helps...
