    Job Anxiety

    #Job Search Woes
    Anyone else trying and failing to find reasonable paying employment. . I have put out literally hundreds of job applications. . I do all the "right" things that I was taught you do. The questionnaires, the panel interviews, the follow up thank you letters. Tell them I'm Autistic, don't tell them I'm Autistic. Everytime it seems all is going wonderful. You even see your work area if hired sometimes . Yet everytime I'm either ghosted or they let me know they've chosen someone else. I did mock interviews in a actual class that was supposed to teach you all this and I did well in these. I just give up it's a mystery I apparently can't fathom. I just want to easily get a job like other people seem to.

It's so isolating.

    Thinking Out Loud

    The stress I wonder, having a job and keeping it, or filing for disability and enjoying it. Some days are more stressful than others and I wonder how many more years before my mental illness catches up with me to the point of not being able to handle the workload, I can currently handle. Just thinking out loud.#Stress #Thinking #Job #MentalIllness

    Help with work anxiety

    :) I am at a new job and usually struggle to find or keep employment, so far everyone is nice and the training is better than at other places, but guess don’t want to feel alone in my struggles hiding my mental health at the workplace, maybe eventually I can reach out for help if they are accommodating, they offer some mental health supports partnerships so I’m incredibly lucky. Thanks for any tips and sharing your own story or struggles with work anxiety.

    ADHD Interest Levels

    People with ADHD can struggle when they aren't extremely interested in what they are doing. If they get bored, the novelty of a new job or hobby may give them the adrenaline rush they need. Similarly, people with ADHD enjoy tasks that are more like sprints than marathons.#hobbies #Job

    Unsolicited advice about life and job #Stress #stres #Job #Anxiety

    I got a job. Well-paid job. My anxiety and stress levels in high. The boss always tells me how badly I do my job, even when she was the one that made the mistake. Zero accountability from her side. I am tired. Her attitude drains my energy. I like what I do. I love my job but not her attitude.

    I have no better option that pays me better.. I stay there because I need the money. :(

    I am tired and stressed and all I want to do is stay on the couch watching Netflix. And I cannot tell people that I don't feel like going out because I am tired and stressed.

    The other day I told a friend and that went bad. There are always people with "savior syndrome", trying to "rescue me" by giving out-of-context unsolicited advice, unuseful advice that only makes me feel more stressed.

    Is like suddenly police of the emotions appeared from nowhere, requesting me a plan to do better, a plan to feel better in a certain amount of time. Requesting me a plan to handle the situation better. And asking me later about "improvements" and why I am still in that job. And why I haven't quit.. well... the answer is very simple... I am hungry, I have bills to pay, and I cannot quit now. Then they ask if I am earning good money, and I say yes, then start to inquire why I haven't bought a car and judge my minimal lifestyle. :(

    Is exhausting that people want me to tell them a long speech or a long doctoral thesis explaining why I feel that way and why I don't quit.

    I hope they know I only want relief expressing "I am tired", and all I need to hear is "ok, I feel you" ... for now I suffer in silence.

    Thanks for reading.

    The BPD Struggle is Real #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #stuck #Job #Relationships

    The past 5 years have been hard to say the least. Health issues, mental health issues brought on by several significant life changes that all occurred in an abbreviated time frame.

    5 years is a long time and honestly, I feel stuck and not sure how to break through this.

    As a 53 yo woman, I feel like I have a lot to offer…to relationships and to employers. I have been lost though. I hold onto relationships even if I know they’re unhealthy because in my mind, I’d rather be comfortable with them than be alone with myself.
    I’ve been in 3 relationships, two of which are with NPD personalities. The one was a marriage of 20+ years. The second, 5 years. It’s on and off and neither of us seem to know how to stop it. It’s very hard, extremely hard especially when he sees everything I do wrong but can’t see his own behaviors. He deploys the silent treatment but when he’s finished punishing me (because that’s how it feels), he comes back and says that he wants the relationship. It’s all confusing. I know he’s toxic but there’s a part of us that we’re both drawn to the other and can’t ignore.

    My biggest problem is this job situation. It’s been 5 years and after having an 18 year extraordinary career, I can’t seem to help myself. I can’t afford therapy now so finding this group seems like a great supportive alternative.
    I just need someone to help me understand how to manage these situations that keep me stuck.
