If you are stable, and can handle stress and anxiety well, I think you’ll be fine. I’m pretty stable for the most part, yet under stress, my symptoms flare up. I also have extremely bad anxiety. But that’s just me. I’d say give it a shot, and if it doesn’t work out, at least you’ll know.
I couldn’t maintain any job for more than 1 month after my sz diagnosis. Before sz I kept jobs for more than 3 years and I was under 20 y.o. My issue is anhedonia, I have fun at the beginning but then the fun and motivation all crashes.
I’ve been able to get a job and hold it for 8 months after switching to first Latuda, then Saphris.
Also I think stopping the regular use of seroquel helped a lot. If a medicine has fatigue as a side effect, I will get that side effect.
I volunteered in the AA meeting place bookstore for 4 hours a week, or when filling in for someone else. The 4 hours were difficult for me, but I managed. A real job doesn’t pay you for just sitting most of the time like this volunteer job did. The bookstore shut down with Covid-19.
I do customer support for an antivirus company. Chat and phone, but mostly phone these days.
My triggers are stress, and sensory overload. There’s a lot of noise at work, but I’ve gotten better at just tuning it out.
I don’t know, I have like two modes. “Work-Miika” and “real Miika”. If real Miika is feeling symptoms, they will go into Work Miika mode as soon as I enter the premises, and put on my game face until I get home, and then I sometimes just sit in a dark room for a while and stare blankly into space.
Just to sort of rest my senses a bit.
Ive had a job for nearly 4 years. Had many short jobs after being diagnosed. I cant really handle my current job anymore so im switching jobs. Applying for disability so i can work less since work flares my symptoms
Tried. Failed. Will try again in a bit, but search very carefully for something that fits me and my situation and doesnt overwhlem me. Probably something simple and something i feel does good to the world in a small, quiet way.
