Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello,I have used several resources such as career counsellers and LinkedIn and resume writing. I am just concerned because as time goes by all my progress with my illness seems moot. I am single and I avoid certain friends as I want to remain sober, so life is a challenge. I want to be employed but it just hasn't happened.
Well to be honest I have done these things, I am taking an online MBA at the moment and thinking of taking a financial designation. I also volunteer at a Buddhist temple and for the past few years an elementary school. I just don't want this unemployment to send me backwards with respect to my illness. I am trying to stay positive but my father and sister are not very supportive and it is harmful.
More or less I have heard that I am doing things properly and it is a matter of time. I do have a therapist I see every two weeks. I am just so ready to move on and out of my parents house and into my new life, but the first step is taking so long.
I think that is the right thing to do. Perhaps, I need to add or change some activities to stay 'happy'. I have meet some women at the gym or the grocery store but after a manic episode a year a go and being unemployed I feel inadequate. I feel quite sort actually. So employment to me is like the first step to feeling good about myself.
Thank you- I suppose the fact that experts are telling me to maintain my course is as good as it gets. I will rate you well don't worry.
