I work on art, so I'm not required to go anywhere :bigsmile:
Yes, same here. The times when I'm unemployed is when I suffer the most about SAD and have some setbacks in my progress. Avoiding and postponing the danger situations is certainly not the way to cure anything; it makes you feel better at that moment, but the problem persists or even aggravates.hmm you guys honestly think an online job would help your social phobia though?i think it would make many of you worse tbh..i would think working with a therapist and taking the right medication ALONG with working at a job where there is some social interaction would be the healthiest way to live..i know earlier in my life i took basically a year off work and became a complete recluse, i noticed my mental health declined big time and it took me a long time to get out of that rut..avoidance and social phobia just seem to get worse if you dont constantly battle it..
I sorta feel like I am in that same boat.mg:I was just curious...those of us who may be severe enough that we cannot even hold a job outside the house...how does everyone financially get by? I know quite a few write they can get to work and that's it and back home again, but I know many cannot hold a job. I am one of them.
What does everyone do to get by when they cannot hold an outside job?
This pretty much sums it up. The more you dig your own hole, the deeper you'll be in it. You need to take it one day at a time and force yourself to do something that scares you every single day, even if it's something small. Say hi to the cashier at the store, ask someone for the time, sit at a café and read a book, etc.I work. Forced myself too.
Love being independent.
