I start my job on Monday, 2/3/20

I’ll be working part-time (20 hrs/week) as a custodian. I haven’t worked in 8 months, so this will test me for sure. Hopefully I can hack it.

Work is a good thing, if you can handle it. You might find having a job to be good for your mental health. Besides the money, it gives you something to do with some of your time and gives some structure to your days. It may give you a sense of pride and satisfaction as well. So yeah, I think this could be a very good thing for your recovery.

I agree completely. Something that (hopefully) is low stress like cleaning will help my mental health. I’ve been just sitting around all day, doing nothing and rotting. I figured it was time for a change. I’m not too caught up in the money, I’m on SSDI. But having a little extra money that I earn isn’t a bad thing. So yeah, I’m looking forward to it :grin:. Plus, the building I’m cleaning is 5 minutes from my house, so there is little commute time.

good luck on the job. way to go getting a job!.. personally I want the extra money from working but don’t think im ready. I may just have to get a job regardless though, because I have a lot of home improvement projects I need to find a way to pay for. also im hoping not to commute far when I do go back to work, hopefully i’ll find something in town.

20 hours is the right thing to do. I started at about 16 hours a week 6/7 years ago and now I work 34 hours a week and have friday-sunday off to recover and do chores

I started looking on indeed for jobs in my town. Eventually, this one popped up and I applied. They called me within an hour and set up an interview. Just had orientation today. So yeah, working in town is a huge plus for me. Plus the extra couple hundred bucks will be nice. Can maybe save up for a new car.
