I told myself after my last two fast food jobs that I wasn't going to go for another job in that industry because it's just too stressful and anxiety-inducing. But then Biggby happened. I'd been going there to work on my freelance jobs and I really liked the environment and the employees. Then one of … Continue reading A New Job
So, my last post was all about how I have this job now. It's remote, work-from-home, and it's part-time. Originally I was contracted for 10-20 hours a week. My client asked if I was getting enough hours and, when I said I could work a little bit more, cleared me for working up to 40 hours per … Continue reading Working Has Been Good For Me… Who Knew?
Guys, I have a job. I've struggled with having a job in the past. My past two jobs were part-time in fast food and neither of them lasted very long. I had too much anxiety and my depression spiked dramatically. But this job is different. It's still part-time at 10-20 hours per week but it's … Continue reading So, I Have a *gulp* Job

I don't know why I haven't gone back but I've been trying … Continue reading Baby Steps, Carry Me Forward

As the week and a half has progressed (with medication adjustments) I have still been feeling very … Continue reading Quitting My Job
For those of you following my latest posts, it's probably evident that I have not been doing very well. I have been incredibly depressed, fighting off self-harm urges, and have been crying 2/3 of my days. It's exhausting. I called in sick to work twice (on the 31st of December and the 3rd of January) … Continue reading Taking Time Off Work
