im seriously considering taking my life, I can’t go to work cos I don’t function well in work environment but I can’t afford not to. I’m on esa support but it’s not enough and I can’t get pip cos they don’t believe my issues. I’m causing issues for others and I’m a burden on family who also can’t afford to keep me so what’s the point! I have no quality of life and I’m ruining everyone else’s so why carry on
Can you find a job/activity you feel positive doing? I have an autistic son and he's started delivering pamphlets. He gets out in the daylight, walks for hours and earns some money. When you find a job you feel ok doing then you can spend time developing your creative self. I don't do well in busy work environments and I'm not even on the spectrum. Good luck and be patient with yourself.You're not alone.
Don’t think it makes a difference what the job is, it’s the act of actually working that’s an issue, I can’t even do life jobs, hygiene, cleaning, eating etc
Start filling your life with things or activities you feel positive about. Doesn't matter how small. I tell my son to fill his life with positive actions.
You are getting as bad as me. Sorry that I'm not much positive help. You can always hope your lottery numbers come up.
A long time ago I was advised, find out what you're good at or you enjoy doing. Then find someone to pay you for doing it.
The issue with that is it doesn’t put money in my pocket, roof over my head nor will it ease the burden I’m putting on others
Not really good at anything, I enjoy gaming, tried to make a living from it and failed
You write well. You can definitely put down your thoughts clearly. I hope you can find some support that can help you find what you need to support yourself.
Have you said all this to your GP?
No, don’t see the point. It won’t help my financial and living situation
It could help you start to feel better and that's more important. I've felt how you feel and it's awful. Please go see the gp first. Take each day as a step
