Hi and welcome to the forum. You certainly are not alone in your feeling. We all have been through it or are currently still going through it.
My best advice is to keep a normal schedule and make seeking employment your job.
Seeing as you are recently unemployed the odds aren't as stacked against you as it is for the long term unemployed.
You seem to have a wide variety of skills so you are more marketable.
Create multiple resumes each geared towards a different job sector.
Update or refresh your resume on a weekly basis on job boards. This puts you back at top of the list.
Eat healthy and get good sleep. This will help fight off depression.

And check in here daily for support.

Thanks to all members for participating in the discussions.

Good luck, trey! As J_I_M said, you are only recently laid off and the odds of finding employment again are in your favor. Take heart in knowing that I was unemployed for over 3 years before recently finding a job.

Welcome to the forum, we are all here to support each other!

Im sorry, i didnt explain myself fully, ihad been laid off for 2years, 2 months ago i got hired on at a local Harley Dealership, i was there long enough to be told that i got a raise raise and more hours for the taking,then the 29th of November i was told i would no longer be needed! Who does that?! Im struggling here trying to keep my head above water, but im sinking deeper and deeper! I know everyone has heard of "road rage", im getting to the point of "life rage"
