I have not really worked in the last 2 years. I did 2 call center jobs last year but they did not last. I cannot do what I trained for as I injured myself....my back. so I have to do something not physically demanding. My main prob is that I have a prob going out. I get all anxious when I have to do anything outside my home. I was not like this before but maybe being at home the last two years have caused this. Then I start bblaming myself that I am lazy. This is also another call center job.

Dear GT,

First of all you are not lazy, you have an anxiety disorder.  Is it possible for you to find a position that is only a few hours a day and a couple of hours a week to get you acclimated to ctually being out on a regular schedule.  You may want to try a bit of volunteer work that will help you get used to being out working with people.  It also looks good on a resume.

I have trust in you that you can get past this anxiety.  Stay in the moment and take deep breaths, and relax.  You will make it.
Hugs

Kitt

You are not lazy at all. You are just so use to being home for so long that it makes you anxous to finally get out. This is normal to feel especially for a job. Just tell yourself positive things and you will be fine. This will probley help you with your anxiety because you will be doing something with your time. This is going to be good for you. Be happy. After a few days on the job, im sure it will be so much better. You will do just fine.

Thanks for your response Kitt. I need to work because I need the money. I know its best to take baby steps but this place that is hiring is seeking full time workers. I also want to start feeling better about myself and not working has really gotten me down.

Hi Anastasia, thanks for your reassurance. I honestly tell myself I must be lazy why I am not working. My back is bad but I left those other  2 jobs last year because one was depressing and the other I was in an abusive situation with my own son and it was just too much at that time Think od being abused as a child then abused by my first boyfriend till I was 25, then to have mey own child that I have raised on my own abuse me both verbally and physically. I am hoping that I will like the job because I will need the money and I need to get out. Thanks for your kind words.
