hi there,
I really need advice from someone. my mental health is a mess right now. but I cant talk about it with anyone. everyone thinks i'm fine cause i'm trying hard to cover my depression and anxieties.
I was offered a job as a translator in technical field for 2 months and I have to start work after 2 weeks but the problem is that I have social anxiety and also don't have any experience in that and don't know any terms so my anxiety gets much worse. when I think about starting that work I feel like I want to run away and i get so anxious that i feel like i have to throw up. but I cant refuse the offer cause my family really needs a money. what should I do?

you need to start to claim benefits x hopefully there will be a time when you feel able to work again but until then you need an income
do you know of a benefit adviser near you? xx

I agree with Fairy Lu. You need to put your health first. I know how hard it must be that your family needs the money, but benefits will still provide some income to your household.

I am not from Canada so can't advise unfortunately on the system you have there. Do you feel able to discuss your anxieties and health issues with your family? I think it could really help you if it is possible to do so. Working so hard to hide it from your loved ones will only make you feel more isolated. I think if you could open up, then it would be easier to access some sort of support that you desperately need :hug:

And welcome to the forum, I hope it will also help you in some way :)
