Off day! 😥

Feeling completely helpless today, I'm always dependant on everybody because we only have one car and my fiance has it at work. He came home yesterday and started filling out an application for a gas station he works oil field now so would be a huge pay cut, were barley surviving now... I'm not working due to this crappy anxiety.. Just so overwelmed!! I feel like I need to get a job terrified he's going to leave me because of all my anxiety putting the stress on him.. How do I go get a job with this agoraphobia?!! Hating myself right now

Def try, I know a few people here in Mass that are on it.

Yes, a friend of mine is on disability from panic and anxiety attacks. You should apply. Keep in mind you'll need some medical documentation and also almost all 1st applications are denied so if that happens, reapply.

I know a good link , “rat race rebellion.com” or maybe monster.com ..any site really would be good . Make sure they’re legit of course lol 😊 but yeah I’d work from home really. I’m tempted to, not because of my anxiety which i manage pretty ok , but I hate how this company is ran and I’m underpaid :/ but hope you consider the work from home thing ! :) then you’ll be at your safe place and working :)

I got a job I considered menial. Easy without thinking to hard. A gas station deli. I feel better once I’m there. It’s getting ready and going that’s a problem. We have regular customers and that helps me feel more comfortable as well. Have you ever considered working from home or a job where you are mostly alone? My daughter in law got a part time extra job stocking gift cards etc at stores. Grocery stores, Walmart etc. Anywhere that has cards you can buy for things. Like ITunes cards, visa gift cards, restaurant gift cards etc. She had to go out but she did not have to talk to anyone. The cards were mailed to her. Also working with children I love. They are innocent at heart and aren’t judgemental. Data entry, medical transcription etc are all jobs you basically do by yourself. I don’t know your education or background. I worked in the hospital ICU and on rescue squad for years. Then I became a substitute teacher. For high school they take care of themselves. Mostly you just take attendance and pass out busy worksheets. Both of which you can get another student to help with. I’ve done elementary, middle school and high school. High school is simple. I really enjoyed elementary school because it was more hands on. As my illness got worse I moved up. When kids change classes by the time they get annoying or bad they leave and you start fresh. My sister hates most people so she cleans houses. She likes the busy work and being on her own in quiet places. You can work at your own pace and not have to work around a lot of people. In Home daycare pays a lot! It’s a minimum of 100.00 a child. You can also do before and after school care where they have snack or breakfast and do homework. Maybe have games or something for them. Offer to charge a little less if they pay cash. Then they come to you. All day pays more but before and after care leaves you open for doctors etc. It also helps with transportation trouble. It should be easy to call daycare providers in paper to get prices for your area. My sister in law charged 125.00 per kid and had at least 10. She had a huge home and got a Hispanic lady that worked for room and board plus 200.00 a week and cleaned and watched kids. My sister in law was making a ton of money for doing nothing!
