Hi gniki. Welcome to the forum. I never did get past the anxiety on the jobs I tried to do. I only lasted three months or so at each job. They were good jobs too. They were photography jobs. One was at a small local newspaper and one was at the Sears photo studio.

If I were properly prepared for these jobs, that might have made a difference.

My mental illnesses including severe anxiety prevent me from working. I want a part time job too. :(

working part-time, 16 hours (4 evenings a week, 4 hour shifts)

meds i take working so it's fine

if meds not working i'd be f**ked (anxiety, negative thoughts, depression, etc), and wouldn't last long before quitting
