Hi, from your detailed description it is clear that you are suffering from Depression. Feeling low all the time, crying spells, feeling sleepy whole day , thinking negatively about the situation and feelings of worthlessness could all be part of the Depression. You seem overwhelmed by life stresses like lack of suitable job, differences between you and your husband and having had high ambition but being unable to match up to it in reality. In my opinion please do consult a Psychiatrist. You will definitely improve with medication. Following that you can undergo counseling to improve your coping skills and to get clarity on the situation. You need to understand that Depression affects your mood as well as your perceptions and hence everything looks and feels as if it is insurmountable. However, with treatment you can get clarity on your perceptions and make positive changes in your life. So do consult a Psychiatrist . Hope this helps, All the Best!

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.
Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Try to put up your résumés or CV on as many job sites as possible. Most of them are free so it will not cost you anything. It is possible that since you may not have significant experience, you may have to take a simpler job with less pay. However do not despair. Everyone has to start somewhere. The important thing is to start a job somewhere, get experience, then you can upgrade to a better job. At the se time, if possible, do some additional courses that will help to strengthen your resume. Also confide in someone you trust and spend time with family and friends. This will help you reduce your stress. If you feel suicidal consult a psychiatrist immediately.
Try to involve a family member or friend to arrange a mediation between both of you. If that does not work, consult a counselor or psychiatrist.
