Isolation

Hi, my name is Amy and I am 25 years old. I live in the Wirral with my parents, brother and our 7 year old cat named Fluffy. It has been a while since I have been on this community, so I thought I would pop back and try it out again.

For a while now I have felt isolated at home. Don’t get me wrong, I love being comfortable and safe at home especially with all the things happening in the news etc. But I feel that because I don’t go out or have any friends who live close to me/in the same country, I am isolating myself. I don’t like to go out at night because it gets me all panicked same with new places I haven’t been before. But I would like to go out and meet people who will understand me.

I’m not working at the moment, as the last time I had a job I had a melt down and had to quit. I really would LOVE to work with animals but have no qualifications and I have no money to pay for animal courses for college. 
I just feel really stuck, confused and sometimes depressed on what to do next.

I don’t drive so I rely on public transport, and that’s what’s stopped be from going to an autism group because I couldn’t get there among other reasons. Does anyone have any ideas or can help me?

  • Hi, Amy. Welcome back :) I'm also 25 and I'm currently awaiting diagnosis. 

    If it helps, a lot of animal-related jobs don't actually ask for specific qualifications (I can see from the other comments that you have GCSEs). It's worth applying for a few jobs - you've nothing to lose by submitting an application. In the meantime, it might be worth volunteering at a local animal shelter to get some experience to add to your CV.

    Best of luck with everything.
