Sorry you're feeling hopeless, Silent Thunder. I've been there myself.
These are the things that help me:
1. Getting out of the city and into nature works best. Honestly. It's hard to feel hopeless when you're surrounded by the beauty of nature, and away
from the city. Can you get to a national park for the weekend? Or at least a state park?
2. Homeopathy has also helped me. There are a lot of good remedies for depression and hopelessness. It's best to go to a homeopath, but if you
can't afford one, there's a great book I can recommend called Emotional Healing with Homeopathy, by Peter Chappel. It's a good beginner book on how
to find a good remedy for yourself.
3. Hypnosis has also helped me.
4. Cancelling my cable and internet helped, but then I found I could get onto my neighbor's internet signal for free, so I'm still sort of addicted
to coming on to ATS.
Maybe you could try swearing off of cable, internet and ATS for a week..and get into nature....and see how you feel after that. Try to forget about
all the doom and gloom. Because there IS still a lot of good things about the world, too.
