English is my third language. I meant to say "Exhuming" ourselves FROM, not "for."
"Exhuming" ourselves for the depression we're under isn't easy and can take a while. One way or another you're going to have to find a way to reconnect with yourself and the world at large, which might require a complete lifestyle "makeover." Your spirit is broken somehow, and it needs to heal. Start by rewinding the tape of your existence to see when, where, why, and how things began to go haywire. There's something missing, every fiber of your soul feels it, but you don't know what it is ... yet. But you must remove yourself, if only for a few hours at a time, from the environment you're in. Get out of the house, go hiking, go fishing. As the Founding Fathers said you have a right to "life, liberty, and the PURSUIT of happiness," so work hard and go after them. They're not going to come to you. Challenge yourself, and learn to live again. If all this doesn't work, talk to a therapist.
Otherwise: church, take a college class, rec. center where there are crafts,self defense classes, art,swimming etc. Take a cooking class, join your nearest Curves for Women, get a dog and take him for a walk. Good luck.
Now I just have to remember that myself.
