My sister ties with my husband for most important person in my life (which is good since I currently live with her) and most of the time she is amazing and supportive and awesome but sometimes, with certain things, she is just the most frustrating and insensitive person ever!
My anxiety has been getting in the way of me getting a job for over a year now (to be a little fair, for the first 6 months I was constantly at doctors appointments and such for recovery from a car accident). Once I have a job, I am fine. Mostly. (That is, I can manage things when they go sideways) But the process of applying for jobs is damn near impossible for me. Since my sister is currently supporting me, you can imagine that topic comes up somewhat regularly. But when I ask for help on job applications (or even just express a need for help) she gets frustrated and rants about how if I need help just to apply for a job, then I would be 100% disabled and should be living on disability and I'm not therefore I don't need the help I think I do, I just need to get a job and everything will get better... and the message behind her rant is: suck it up, get over it, my reasons for not having a job are invalid. ... Also, confusingly, is the circular logic of "you just need a job to feel better and then you wouldn't be having so much trouble.... getting a job"... Not helpful!
It's true I do better when I have a job because it supplies routine and forces me out of the house on a regular basis but that's not helping me right now since I don't have a job.
I just don't know what to do about this problem I have with job applications. And I don't know what to say to my sister when she's being like that. And it's that second part that bothers me the most at the moment.
I'm not sure if I'm looking for advice or just ranting.
Thanks for listening though.
