>>585985873 go and see a dr. about your anxiety , fight it , keep trying , don't give up. look for entry level jobs or course that can give you qualifications, maybe go back to school ? keep trying don't give up , I am in the same situation as you but I am slowly getting better and hopefully I will be employed by 2015
>>585987057 I know I can but I don't want to. Even if I have Panic attacks, I will still try and find work. I'm going to try and work somewhere small, where there won't be a lot of people. So I can get used to working and being around strangers.
I've tried going to the doctors and I am on a waiting list for counselling but I've been waiting ages now and it's really frustrating. I understand I must try to improve it by myself, so I do occasionally try to go out even if I don't feel up to it. I'm sure I will get much better than I am now, I've just never had to look for a job before.
>>585987614 Don't be a dipshit by easing yourself into it, just get a job in a local pub and go from there. If you pussyfoot around trying not to set off an "anxiety attack" then you'll never get anywhere, and you'll be stuck on the dole forever.
Stop making up excuses and get a fucking job, there's plenty of them, you just need to wake up in the morning and go outside you faggot.
>borrow money from some fag >score coke >bump all day erryday >become cop >visit the fag you borrowed money from >yell STOP RESISTING >shoot him >advance your career >keep bumping all day erryday >ruin people's lives >pimp junkie whores to roodypoos >steal money / weed / phones from potheads >turn it for cash in the ghetto >??? >profit
Primark, McDonalds, any job that says no qualifications required, there are tons of jobs that hire the lowest tier of worker in every city every week, also everyones anxious, there is no other cure than just sucking it up.
>>585988691 I'd prefer to work in a small place, just to get used to everything. I'm not trying to pussy foot around anything because I do want a job. I just think if it started working at a big retailer/restaurant I would feel a lot worse.
>>585988833 Completley wrong, going into one of the bigger employers all you have to do is exactly what they tell you, no initiative required and being around the general public with no obligation to socialise just plodding on doing your job will reduce your social anxiety, it'll become normal to be in crowds.
>Be me >Severe anxiety and bektrevs disease >Get wellfare 2k USD a month >Sell half my prescriptions drugs for 2k USD a month to online buyers and send thru mail. >Get money transfered from them and marked as different things like PC parts etc. >Have 50k USD on my bank account. >Browse /b/ and game all day being high on pain meds and xanax.
>>585990137 Don't take meds because I feel better without them. I've tried to get therapy but there's a long waiting list. I've noticed that exercise helps me the most, so I guess I should start doing more of it and try to go out more.
I have the ability to get a job, it's just a difficult thing for me to do at the moment.
>>585990479 They cant do shit without evidence. That the money is never used can be excused by Im having a sugar daddy that pays everything to me. And if the say thats false (still no evidence, innocent to proven guilty), then I claim discrimination against gays.
The IRS dont check small timers like me, they are busy with the big guys with millions.
>>585990837 If your doctor gives you a benzodiazepine first line for anxiety, your doctor is an idiot. You need an SSRI like citalopram (Celexa). That is first line treatment for anxiety. Source: I'm a pharmacist

I bet you feel awesome leeching off the system like that,faggot, enjoy prison they will catch you. You are in denial and trying to justify your pathetic little scam.
>>585985873 I have severe anxiety too op and I have a difficult time getting a job too. Truth is no one will hire you even if you have qualifications. The only way for me to get a start somewhere was to have some strings pulled by someone I already knew.
>>585991413 >scam (Im not a scammer, I sell drugs and get wellfare for a genuine disease) >I know how to lounder money. >In my country they dont use half the budget on police and guv employes. >And if I should make a mistake, I get probs a 1-2k fine. Laws in my country is silly.
>>585991505 Let me say this first: I hate drug companies. They are fucking evil, and I have no reason to say anything nice about them. HOWEVER, you don't understand the complexity of the human brain and how your body uses the same chemicals in different parts of the body. SSRIs, admittedly, are hit and miss for everyone. You need to try a few different ones for three months before you're going to find something that has a low enough side effect profile that you can tolerate it. There are no quick fixes and it's common to need to try a few different drugs. Meds are tested for the placebo effect. That's part of what drug trials ARE.
>>585991861 I don't take meds because they suck and make it worse for me in other ways. Most normal people see anxiety a different way than people with anxiety. It's like a mental disability to them and there's a stigma attached to it the same as depression. I can't interview worth shit and fold but if you try hard enough you might find someone who can understand your illness.
Op, look up Samantha/Mindfulness meditation. It's a type meditation that is specially designed to deal with anxiety, stress and depression. It has worked wonders on everyone I've met who did it, including myself. I used to be so anxious and stressed that going to the store was a giant task that took ages to prepare for. Then I started meditation and counseling and I am getting better every day. I'd recommend you start with the meditation and wait for the counseling. If you can manage to look for a job without it screwing you up too much, you should do that too.
>>585992032 >Meds are tested for the placebo effect. That's part of what drug trials ARE.
Or the Pharmaceutical companies know how to make a quick dollar. Have you seen how many different pills they hand out for bi-polar disorder?
They change the formula to one pill by a tiny bit and there you have it, a whole new brand of pills.
Yes, some pills DO WORK but that doesn't mean people like me have to be prescribed them instantly after seeing a doctor. I've felt massively better after exercising/diet but my doctor has never once suggested any of those things to me. They get paid to prescribe pills, just like the Drug companies do.
>>585993089 If you think like that, I'm not going to change your mind. I've had plenty of friends from university who work in drug trials unaffiliated with companies. The shit is tightly regulated. Three quarters of all drugs don't make it to market because they're not statistically significantly different than placebo. You just don't know about them because they don't make it to the fucking market.
>>585993282 It's really one of the best ways to deal with stuff like this. Medication can work for some people, but it's only treating the symptoms, when you do mindfulness meditation it teaches you to deal with the root causes of you problem. It's been a life saver for me and countless others. >>585993556 Yes this is what I am talking about. This combined with counseling will help immensely, at least it did for me.
>>585993657 I've done my fair share of research about the drugs they can/can't prescribe and the ones that haven't made it to the market. I have my own opinion on the people who supply them and the industry itself, so no you won't be able to change my views on that. I'm not anti-drugs because I believe for a lot of people drugs can be the answer to some degree, just not for everyone. Drugs numb you, they provide temporary relieve, they don't address the root of the problem but they can still be a good thing, just depends on the dosage and the person taking them.
>>585986988 Seriously OP. This. Aim low if you have no qualifications. And stop being a fucking autist, it is NOT hard to talk during an interview. Write it down or some shit. Just use some generic "I work hard" bullshit and recycle it every time you go out for a new job.
OP you sound exactly like me when I was 18. I dropped out of sixth form because of anxiety/retarded angst and started signing on when I could and trust me it only gets worse, you're just gonna have to force yourself out there or after a while every employer will ask about the big fucking gap on your timeline. Lie on your CV, say you've worked at small shops and give a friends email as a reference (obviously ask them first), do not let your time alone get to you, that shit is a horrible spiral into depression and anxiety. I can't even smoke weed anymore because of my anxiety, I start twitching and being fucking weird. I have constant chest pains because of the anxiety because my muscles are so tensed, feels like a stabbing pain, I've heard voices in my head and a whole number of things because I spent 3 years on my own waiting for it to get better while it gets gradually worse. If I didn't have my one friend to go out and get fucked with I'd be insane by now. I just managed to get a job in a brewery this week because of this one friend but that is the luckiest thing that ever happened to me. Seriously you need to sort this shit out soon because the job market is getting worse and your anxiety will get worse. I'm honestly worried about someone else living this life for this long, you have to stop feeling sorry for yourself and get motivated for a bit no matter how hard that is
>>585997260 I heard that in the USSR that they creayed arbitrary jobs like sitting at a desk for 6 hours literally doing nothing, just to employ people. Like a third of the population were watchman or worked an info booth.
Alright let's pretend OP never picked up a pen Let's pretend things would have been no different Pretend he procrastinated, had no motivation Pretend he just made excuses that were so paper thin they could blow away with the wind OP, you're never gonna make it makes no sense to play the game there ain't no way that you'll win Pretend he just stayed outside all day and played with his friends Pretend he even had a friend to say was his friend And it wasn't time to move and schools weren't changing again He wasn't socially awkward and just strange as a kid He had a father and his mother wasn't crazy as shit And he never dreamed he could get a job and just lazy as shit Fuck a talent show in a gymnasium, bitch, you won't amount to shit quit daydreaming kid You need to get your cranium checked you thinking like an alien and just ain't realistic Now pretend they ain't just make him angry with this shit And there was no one he could even aim when he's pissed it And his alarm went off to wake him but he didn't make it to the job centre Slept through his plane and he missed it He's gon' have a hard time explaining to everyone these food stamps and this WIC shit Cause he never risked shit he hoped and he wished it but it didn't fall in his lap so he ain't even here
>>585985873 You can beat anxiety believe it or not, eventually you accept natural fear of certain situations/ contexts and desensitise. Hard to believe when anxiety is acute and strong, but anxiety results from faulty cognition, and not seeing the world and others perceptions of you as they really are. Good luck Op
This right here is a huge reason you won't get hired. I am experiencing it right now. I have family as references but no work or friend/aqautence references. I'm thinking about going to AA/NA meetings because the people that attend them are sometimes bros who will help out with this.
Capitalism > Nature. Fuck OP, if he can't get a job who fucking cares? There are people who would eat shit and cut their own dick off to be in this country and have the opportunity to work hard. OP get the FUCK out.
>>585997611 >>585998469 You and people like you are part of the reason a very treatable mental disease doesn't get treated. You take away hope through shaming tactics and willingly stop people from seeking the help they need. I really hope you never go down with stress and have anxiety problems, because you're gonna feel like shitheads for behaving like this if you do.
