I found out at Christmas 2016 that my parents were splitting up. This was the last straw for me. I began having random panic attacks and began having issues leaving the apartment for work or shopping.
I started seeing a therapist and have been diagnosed with severe depression with generalized social anxiety. With these issues come a very difficult time holding a job.
As it turns out, after discussion with my therapist, this has been something I’ve just been dealing with for years now. I’ve had and lost many jobs and friends in the past due to my anxiety. I cancel plans, I call in sick cause I literally feel sick but aren’t actually sick, and then I spend my days feeling awful for having canceled on friends plans or missed work.
In 2018 I lost my job of 7 years, got and was unable to keep 2 more jobs and I’m currently as of April 2019 on a final warning for missing training on a new job due to having to be out with panic attacks.
At this point, the basically behind on just about everything from rent to electricity bills. I’m going to be losing my phone connection soon, I don’t have internet and I don’t even have current medical coverage due to not having a job and no money to pay for stuff out of pocket.
I’d like to try and file for disability for assistance while working part time but for that to happen I basically have to be unemployed or under employed for over two months.
All in all, things have taken a really bad turn since 2016 and anything I can get from anyone to help me keep my apartment and my lights on for the foreseeable future will help.
