Unfortunate spiraling

I feel like I am right on the verge of having a panic attack.

I am trying so hard to get a job; networking like crazy, applying every day, editing my resume, sending follow ups. Day in and day out I do this. Nothing is happening. Or things are happening so slowly that I don't even feel like things are getting done.

I had an interview two weeks ago and it didn't work out. I have sent out hundreds of resumes to no avail. I have been underemployed for two years, I took a risk and made this big move and things still have not fallen into place. One of the places where I have connections wants me to take a stats course before they consider hiring me. I know that I should do it, but I am SO FRUSTRATED. I'm qualified, I'm smart and good at what I do. What is happening with my life?

I can't even be motivated to better myself. I should start a blog, but what's the point? I should keep applying to jobs, but what's the point?

I'm almost crying at my computer. I know it's not helpful. I know I need to smarten up and just get things done. But how do I at the very least make myself happy while going through this shit?
