I'm not aware of what your profession is, but the more I work, the better I function. I concentrate on taking the best care of my patients as possible and it helps me forget my problems temporarily. Easier Said than done I know, but being a dental assistant, teeth are attached to people ��

I've never spent so much time without work.

And also, i had never been fired before (which i had. Twice, two jobs in the same time period)


I've worked as a common operator, peon whatever, then teacher, assist. Coord., salesman, monitor at one of thosr companies which throws parties for kids (only 2 days arghhh) door-to-door salesman, barman (i screwed up a great opportunity and got fired in the first month)

And a lot of other stuff. Since then i cant do anything i think im worthless. I dont care if the country where im stuck is having a hell of crisis. This just drives me awfullly mad.

I can't feel like working. Only if they (pharmaceutical companies) study my brain hire me as a test subject

I am. It's funny because I was always good with school, and I just graduated this past May, so now I have no other option but to work. i always had a very hard time holding down a job because of my depression and social anxiety. I am currently unemployed but I have to work now and am currently looking.

Like others have stated, working can be a good distraction and be included within your coping skills and on top of that, while you are focusing on your task and not depressive thoughts, you are also gaining a salary out of it.

It's always really stressful to look for and get a new job but in the end, even if the job doesn't fit you, you can always quit it and nothing will be lost, really. Hell, you never know, you could get the problem I'm getting out of mine right now: imposter syndrome.

I'm terrified to work! But I'm doing it. I learned along time ago I had to protect myself. In my 40's I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I had a name for the thing I was trying to protect.

I usually try to find work where I work by myself. It's scary but I'm trying
