Unemployment Diary: I never used to have a problem
This week, The Post's Theresa Vargas presents a series of stories about what unemployed people do now that they've lost the structure that a job lends daily life. Theresa asked about a dozen people who had recently lost their jobs to keep diaries detailing how they fill the suddenly empty hours in their days.
We'd like to continue building this portrait of how unemployment changes life by asking those of you who have lost work to give us a sense of the changing flow and tempo of your days and evenings. What do you do now that you haven't done in the past? What can you no longer do? How have your contacts with friends, family, colleagues changed? What's better, what's worse?
You can give us the details on the comment boards below, or make an Unemployment Diary video of your own and post it to us via YouTube.
Meanwhile, we're posting here all week the full diaries of those people who helped us out with the reporting of Theresa's stories.
