In the couple of months since my blog about unemployment has been running on AOL Jobs, I've heard from many people, both across the U.S. and around the world, who are dealing with the unique and sometimes painful challenges of unemployment.

A lot of us feel very isolated in what we're experiencing, so there's some comfort in knowing that we're not alone. It's one thing to read the statistic that there are 23.5 million un- and under-employed people in the U.S., but another thing to actually read and share each other's stories. It helps.
