How can i ever get a job?
i am under pressure from the job centre always on my back to get a job. they even sent me letters about a kitchen job to apply for. i never told them i wanted to do this type of job. i don’t think they respect that i am ill with depression,anxiety and kinda messed up. how am i gonna get a job if i cant be around people??
sorry, yes i am on sick pay thing. i have to attend ‘job work based’ interviews though. it takes me alot of effort to communicate with the person and enter the builing,never mind attend interviews.
Go see a doctor for starters if you haven’t, and get a diagnoses he will be able to put you on a course of tablets… if you don’t want to take man made drugs then try st johns wort (i did) and tell the doctor that is what you would prefer to use…
Once the tablets start to kick in this is the time to get your self out there hiding your self away will not help you at all it will only make you worse… the hardest thing is to get out there after feeling so down … but believe once you have got out there and your doing things for your self it will soon become easier then you thought … its only hard the first few times honest…
Don’t let the job centre dictate to you what job they want you to do … get the job your self at least that way you will feel like you have the control of your own life and what you want to do…. even if you only go for interviews this is a nice way of getting your confidence back ..
Getting to the interview is a good self achievement when ya down even if you don’t get the job the social will get off ya back cause your trying to sort your own life out..
All this takes time just don’t give up trying life is too short and usually what ever it was that got you so low has long time past so you need to put your chin up and leave it in the past.
