Being on the job market is just making me completely depressed and extremely anxious. It is so bad that I can barely function beyond doing job application related things. I just work on job stuff, try and focus, and then plod haphazardly through a small amount of other work, before becoming almost debilitated.
I am fairly sure it will be fine and I will find something. I got a few pretty awful TT offers last time before taking a post-doc. It doesn't help all that much.
I am just fast becoming bitter and cynical, about the job market and the field as a whole. And in classic depression form, I hate myself for being so dramatic about this, making it even worse!
Surely I am not alone in this. Right? Do many of you feel at least some level of this? I haven't lost hope, but it is getting there.
