So basically I am so embarrassed. My uncle and cousins are visiting my mom next month. I live with my mom. They are around my age, working and married with kids. So I am here with my mom unemployed, fat, not working and schizo. I haven’t seen them since I was young and I am soo embarrassed. They are staying for one week. Like all I do is sleep in, and lay in bed all day on my cell phone on this forum and you tube. I am so embarrased. I don’t have a life. Should I tell them the reason I’m not working is because I have schizoprenia, and I am dealing with symptoms or should I just say I’m looking for work. But the truth is I dont think I will ever be going back to work and they will be visiting again, so they’ll see that I’m not working. Any advice would be appreciated. I just feel like such a loser.
Don’t leave ur room tell ur mom ur out of town working
I would tell them I have schizophrenia if it were my family.
Same here. Let them know you have schizophrenia.
I used to feel the same way a couple years ago but got over it the more people would visit the house.
instead of saying your looking for work. maybe just say your waiting for something worthwhile to come your way. I think collecting government checks is a lot smarter than working some dead end job personally, but that’s just me.
Ive had so many jobs I don’t tell people about work because they all assume i’ll quit or get fired anyways. I think it’s more embarrassing having the psychology of a 20 something entry level worker acting like im excited about the opportunity. most of the older people I know with careers don’t even talk about work much unless it’s brought up in conversation.
Okay I think I will tell them.
Yes. I totally agree with everything you are saying, and relate to it. I just can’t keep a job. I have had so many different jobs and quit them all. I have just given up on work. I use my family as reference for jobs because I have no good references and so everytime I fail at the job, they know. I have just given up. I am just going to tell them I have schizoprenia and hopefully they will understand. I just hate being judged. Especially being the same age as them, in my 30’s and no job. Thank you for your reply.
Thank you for your reply. I think I will tell them.
Sorry to hear you are going through that.
