I can see her side of things, and I understand why she made the decision she did. The stress of me being jobless was affecting both her and I, and our relationship was slowly deteriorating - she saw that when I did not (I can see it now, but only after she pointed out several specific issues), and she felt it was best for both of us to not continue down that path, and she felt that breaking up was the only way to keep things from getting worse (being unemployed and not being able to support her is a very valid concern as well, but the effect that being unemployed was having on our relationship was a more valid reason - one I can understand). I think that if she would have addressed things more tactfully and diplomatically, it would have been a lot less painful for both her and I, but as humans, we loose that ability under stress, so its understandable even if it is regrettable.
She and I have talked a lot since then and have cleared up a lot of the misunderstandings that caused the situation to escalate to the point that it did, but clearing up misunderstandings has not been enough to bring us back where we once were, and I don't know if that will ever happen - we are still "just friends", but I still see enough positive change for both her and I to feel that there is reason for at least a little hope for the future.
Remember that my side of the story is by its nature going to be biased and I am not comfortable talking about all the little details that can add up to a lot, so please do not judge her for her decision. I still love her, and I still care for her, and I take partial blame for letting things get to the point they did, but if there is anything other than the economy to truely blame it is a lack of communication and misunderstandings, so I hope my troubles can be a constructive reminder to someone else of just how important communication is in a relationship.
