January is 10 Days In!

Hello Everyone.
Welcome to another episode of #WhatOnEarthIsHappening ! 🤣

My emotions nose dived today like as if I was flying in an air plane circus show. #emotional time periods are not the best times, but they can be #Valuable when we have #Anxiety . I started to #think about all of these things that I have experienced so far since my father had died in March 2022.

When my #Dad passed away... I lost my favorite pain in the @$$. I was his favorite too. I #Love and #MISS my Dad so much. #Death is not an easy thing to #handle . But while I was #dealing with the #Lose of my Dad, I had them lost my job right after coming down with a terrible #illness .

It was a nightmare for me how I #lost my #Job and my #daddy all in such a short time span. I haven't found another job since because I have not mentally been #prepared for #MentalHealth is something that needed to be worked on as I am still #grieving over my father and my job.

So... Here I am... #RidingTheWaves that come in and out in my mind. Sometimes I just need to #RollWithIt and do what I need to do in the best way I can,.. even if it isn't my usual best. #Trying is better than #denying and #Procrastinating .

I must start small.
If I want a #Job ... I should try a small part time job somewhere. Maybe a retail job.. but.. even #Retail can be #stressful these days. It's getting #worse now that #AnxietyDisorder is getting stronger or more intense with me. But I will do my #best to #KeepWalking onward.

Do you have any words of encouragement for me?

Anyone up? It’s the wee hours.

Just looking to swap some feelings or stories and fire up those different perspectives.
Trying so hard, but everything in life feeling so desperately elusive.
Anyone else up hopelessly toggling between denial and depression? #Jobloss #Fear #toomuch #Pain #hopelessness #whoami #BPD #panic #WhenThingsGoWrong #takingresponsibility #HeavyHeart


I lost my job today...

Hello Mighties. This is my first post, and I could really use some support from this amazing community today.

I lost my job today because I "wasn't working out". It's not the first job I've lost. In the past I blamed myself, but I'm realizing that my C-PTSD, depression, anxiety have played a major role in my ability to keep and maintain a job.

In a way, I feel like I'm being gaslit, because I work really hard for my patients and try really hard to be a team player for my coworkers. But I know that my cptsd, depression, and anxiety make me an "unreliable" employee. It really hurts to know that I've let my employer down, because I know I'm capable of so much more.

I'm just feeling really upset, sad, hurt, overwhelmed, and now scared about my financial future. It's really hard to find a new job when I can't use my former employer for a reference.

Anyone have any experience with applying for SSDI due to CPTSD? I'm wondering if I might qualify, given the impacts on my work performance.

Thanks for listening.

Job Drama

My anxiety is so high right now. I'm on administrative leave & might lose my job over lies. I'm so angry, scared & don't know what to do! 😭😡 #Anxiety #Depression #Job #Jobloss #adminleave


Feeling pretty low

So, I am just finishing up my year of maternity leave and was about to return to work in 2 weeks. Found out yesterday that I no longer have a job to return to... after 6 years working for this company. My position is no longer there due to restructuring and they have nothing comparable to offer me. They are offering me a severance package which I feel is a small amount considering the current job market and the fact that I'll now be ineligible for employment insurance.
I feel betrayed...
I feel like I've lost my identity...
I feel angry...
I feel so many things...
I want to cry... and I'm not sure what direction to turn.
Remember folks, you're just money to these big companies. You and your hard work, dedication, and loyalty doesn't matter when they want to save a few bucks! #Jobloss #maternity #Anxiety


just cant tonight

2nd day on latuda. you know its working when you want to cry and then you can literally feel the feeling die in its tracks. 👍 im still unemployed. looking and searching. being patient is hard to do. my wife is stressed. she's accepted a full time job and comes home exhausted. totally fine, but whats not fine is her expectations for me to keep house like she does. i wish she would just settle for good enough sometimes. yes, my kids dont listen well, talk back and dont pick up after themselves. but maybe all these years when i was working and she was at home she could have NOT just do everything for them bc she couldn't accept a messy house or got frustrated. and yes, i should have been more involved and better about learning how she managed a million things at once. I'm not wired that way naturally. we are both stressed. me with feeling worthless not having a job, not being confident in finding one, still lost and bewildered by this years job issues. She is balancing a new job in her field while getting her masters, but still dealing with all the expectations of mother to 5 kids and a broken husband's ongoing difficulty picking up the broken pieces of his ego. i dont understand how my life has taken a nose dive, i dont get why i cant just heal and get over the loss, i just dont understand what i want or need right now. please pray if you pray. send some wisdom and discernment. i need all the help and support i can get. thank you all in advance. #CheckInWithMe #Bipolar2Disorder #Jobloss #Marriage #MajorDepressiveDisorder


24 hours waiting

I have always struggled with severe procrastination and Generalised anxiety disorder. I've got a meeting tmro with my manager and I'm pretty sure I'm being demoted due to poor performance at work. I've struggled so hard this year and I'm still failing. I have to wait til the end of tmro to find out for sure, but I feel like such a failure - which is one of my greatest fears. Oh boy.

Career suicide #Jobloss

I lost the best job I have ever had two months ago because I was reluctant to relocate. I was trying to negotiate to be able to commute but my boss fired me. Since then I am totally depressed and anxious and can’t focus on anything.
I have a new job but I hate it and it’s not a good fit. However, I have a family and need the money.

The worst part is that I cannot forgive myself for screwing this up and I am afraid to never be able to do so as I believe that this is a life-changing f... up on my part.


#cutthechronic #Fibromyalgia #BrainFog #Jobloss

I lost my job today... I've been bartending at a fine dining restaurant and craft cocktail bar for little over a month. I LOVED my job there but I was let go today.

My boss was so positive and said she loved me and would give me a glowing recommendation to open doors for me to be a server at a finer seafood restaurant in town where she has connections. She said I just wasn't a good fit right now as I'm learning to crank out complicated cocktails in a fine dining environment.

The bar manager is leaving suddenly and they need a polished, high-volume bartender immediately. I'm devastated and grieving for the job I lost but love.

I'm afraid to work somewhere else. Will I not measure up again? I feel like the brain fog and scattered thinking that comes with my fibromyalgia makes it difficult to catch on quickly and multi-task. Sometimes I ask myself: "What is wrong with me?" I need encouragement!
Thank you all!
