can you do it…
I cant work due to neg symptoms of sz…
I do it everyday
I plan on it once I get my rn license.
I’ve worked most of the last 37 years that I’ve had schizophrenia. Mostly unskilled physical work but it bought me a lot of CD’s, gas and upkeep for the car, some luxuries, nice clothes and lots of other things.
Yes and no
I can work but only volunteer
my head is too wrecked to work
I used to be security guard bute even that would be too hard to hold down…could you imagine voices telling you what to do all adday
Luck plays a big part in recovery and working. I’ve been very lucky and I also put in the effort.
I am currently working. Attempting full time but I have a lot of appointments and so rarely make it to 40 hours.
I could, but it would have to be a place with little social interaction, something I’m interested in (maybe a pet store) and my employers would have to know about my illness.
I am working nearly fulltime in a bakery but I wouldn’t be up to anything more stressful than that like teaching or what have you…
I’d be able to work around others if the pain and pressure in my head were gone. Hallucinating is bearable compared to the crushing headaches.
I’ve toyed with the idea of becoming a night janitor, but right now the problem is my back. I clean the latrines at the clubhouse twice a week. It takes less than an hour. Sometimes my back doesn’t hurt too bad, but other times I’m getting to the limits of my pain tolerance. Maybe I could find back exercises that would help. One thing that scares me is that someone might decide to put me on the day shift, or something like that. I want to work in solitude. Being around people is exhausting for me.
I’m horrible at interviewing as they see my flat affect and they know the deal. I lasted less than five minutes at this one interview until the guy was shoving/escorting me out. So not sure how I’d even get a job at this point.
I can’t work due to my: chronic migraines, inappropriateness and bad back. I guess if I had to, I would get a sales job. Probably work for myself. I’m like @ThePickinSkunk, interviewers see my flat affect and they know right off I’m a disability person.
You need to fake some reactions as actors do.
If u just smile and are enthusiastic it’ll help counteract it. I got two interviews that i got hired for and i dont experience emotions.
I don’t have anything to smile for in this life. And I’m not an actor.
Just curious why would they have to know
