Question Help Getting a Job Programs

How many of you, have gone through a Vocational Rehabilitation program, or the other program known as the NTL@Home? Did either of these programs help you with getting a job, or were they both useless in doing this? Both of these programs are suppose to help the disabled community.

I really wish I could get on SSI or SSDI or whatever it is but know that will never ever happen for me.

I can't help you with that but I'll say this and perhaps it'll be comforting in some way:

I used to be afraid of working, thought I could never do it, especially after major depression with psychotic features that really should have killed me but just 3 years later, I've got a decent amount of work experience and I'm getting praised left and right, getting promoted multiple times in the span of just a few months. I even had issues with imposter syndrome last summer because I was getting so much more praise than I could handle. Hell, it's even in the restauration business, notorious for the pressure and I excel at it despite my anxiety issues.

Oddly enough, it changed from a source of stress to a coping mechanism, when I'm there, I don't think about a lot of the crap that's in my head and I get a lot of validation from it. I also get income from it that goes straight to the bank so I don't have to worry about money if/when shit happens.

It could happen to you too; it might require a bit of experimentation to find something that fits you but work can be quite rewarding if you put yourself into it. Most important thing is to take pride in what you do.

I did a Vocational Rehab Program to help find a job in 2014. I landed a temp job as a receptionist. It was supposed to be a summer job but it lasted eight or nine months. I made $13.50 an hour and worked M-F 8-5. The job was too social so I burned out and they decided to go ahead and keep me as just a temp. But it was a good resume builder and I got experience as an admin.

The Vocational Rehab Program also helped me with interview clothes, my resume, and getting professional references. Without them, my resume would be horrible and I wouldn't have references.

I'm still in touch with them in case in the future I need them as a backup plan.

So yeah if you have anxiety issues, I think that would be a good way to get started.

Sorry but screw you and your life alright. I am tired of everyone else succeeding and finding jobs and earning money and yet I can't. It isn't fair or right!
