i am finding it really hard just now, its like everything is against me. i thought i could help people like me/us and maybe even prevent it from happening to some people, but it is just really hard, thought i knew what i wanted to do but now i don’t,
Eh?! What are you doing in the mental health sector? Volunteering?
no, just college but things are not going well, thats why i dont think i’d be cut out for it,
i think i need training instead of college but i cant do that bc i would lose lots on benefits but thats not all thats holding me back, i have problems, things that i was trying to ignore, somethings it is good to ignore but some things you really need to be aware of the dangers like my anxiety and my stress levels bc i have a really low tolerance to stress so i would need to find that sort of work/training environment and without it affecting my benefits some how, i’m just starting to believe that its not possible
It is good that you are recognizing some of this stuff, before it does you harm. I had to switch majors when I found out that I couldn’t handle the criticism of being an art student. I don’t know how far along you are, but there is time for you to take another path. I’m in my early 30’s and I’m still working on my Bachelor’s Degree.
I have a problem with benefits too. I’ll have to be full time for Vocational Rehab to pay for school. I don’t know if I can do it. I hope you find the right answer for your life too!
