Hey Lynnie know where your coming from I fight off depression offend, my horse though is what keeps me normal for the most part. I refuse to take anything for it, you just have to find something that makes the next day worth it.
If there is no jobs around where, what about making your own? Sounds strange and it is a lot of work but a job you love isn't work.
I personally have a hard time holding down jobs because I'm not good with public and the public don't like it when your very blunt. I am starting a small business sewing, I hope to get in to making show clothes for myself because there is very few places that sell things long enough and narrow for me. It is nice to be able to alter your jacket and get that made for me fit.
Anything can be work if you think about it enough, I don't know the regulations in Ireland but you got to be able to do something right?
