I am really struggling with returning to work. Been off since April after being signed off with depression, I decided to leave completly as it was unfair to the company.
I am very much in trouble with money now, family will not support me any longer. I applied for incapacity benefit but its so complicated and I do want to return to work.
I applied for 2 jobs, and got both, I started one, but when the day came I was in such a state I called and made an excuse - I managed to go in the next day but It was awful. I felt so anxious and panicky I gave in and didn't go back.
No one understands why I find it soo difficult. Interviews I am okay with, but its the fear of actually starting.
I had an interview lined up for today but after getting in a rite state last night and hardly any sleep - I gave up and didn't go.
I have signed up with a recruitment company and they have been calling and calling, arranging interviews and I feel like im under soo much pressure.
