Is DEPRESSION Ruining Your Life As A Result Of Redundancy?


Redundancy can leave you feeling devastated, in emotional turmoil and completely bewildered.  It can be a major contributing factor to the onset of depression or in sustaining it.

Depression symptoms:

  • You feel worried about the future
  • Afraid of what might happen to you
  • Have a glass half empty attitude
  • Feel on edge and can’t relax
  • Feeling fed up
  • Become easily angry with yourself, with life and with others
  • Become easily agitated
  • Get frustrated
  • May seem defensive, but really want someone to help you
  • Take your problems out on those closest to you
  • May get aggressive
  • Feel you are about to explode
  • Lack motivation
  • Lack enthusiasm
  • Reflect negatively about the future, past and present
  • Feel an emptiness in your life
  • Feel lonely and isolated
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Stressed
  • Anxious
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Panic attacks
  • Loss of appetite or overeating
  • Have difficulty in sleeping
  • Find it hard to concentrate
  • Strong feelings of negative emotions
  • Feeling extra sensitive to people’s comments
  • Extreme mood change
  • No reason to get out of bed
  • May neglect yourself and your environment
  • Lack of interest in anything
  • Feeling extreme sadness
  • Get upset and tearful
  • Feel desperate
  • Feel hopeless
  • Feel severely unhappy
  • Don’t see a future
  • Feel everything is doom and gloom with no way out
  • Feel you are on a downward spiral
  • Feel you are being swallowed into a black hole
  • Feel no one cares about you
  • Feel no one wants to listen to you
  • Feel no one understands you or your situation
  • Don’t feel like socialising
  • Don’t want to venture outside your home
  • No incentive to progress with your life
  • Can feel alone even when in company
  • Feel no one understands your plight
  • Feel you hate yourself
  • You hate your life and see no point to it
  • Feel suicidal
  • May try to harm yourself in some way
  • Think you would be better off dead
  • Feel helpless
  • Feel you can’t cope

If you find you have experienced more of these symptoms since being made redundant, then it is likely your redundancy has triggered these reactions through cause and effect.

If you experienced almost all of these symptoms on a regular basis before you were made redundant, it is possible:

  • You have experienced trauma in your life that is still affecting you either consciously or subconsciously.
  • Your lifestyle encourages these symptoms
  • Your work instigated them
  • Your personal situation fuels them
  • You may have a depression disorder

You are not alone.
