has anyone here taken work off cus of this dp? has anyone stopped working cus of dp? does working help u get through this, does it make it harder?

i just started working again about months ago and it got easier for me cus everyone just accepted that im a little messed up, kinda made things easier.. instead of questioning me, i feel like they understand and im not so judged now, so work seems a bit easier cus of that, but some still dont even think im messed up, its weird haha

but i started working hella hours and i think my anxiety and paranioa started building up again

one of my worse symptoms came back

makes me not want to work..

but it sucks cus i was getting so good at my job and was pursueing a career man, now i feel like i have to take months off again to figure my problem out

my problem affects others, i dont want to bring others down with me..

my weird problem is i give off a weird vibe and make people feel uncomfortable

it sucks man.. imagine everywhere u go u make people feel bad or something..

it might sound insane that thats even possible, but i swear man..

anyways, what do u guys think about working

since this dp i just decided to dedicate my life to a career, cus thats all i can do right now, now this shit is affecting that

like why wont god give me a break, what have i done man, im going through hell every day and now this happens again? come on man, just a fucking break man

I'm working but it seems like I just dissociate through the day. I function fine but I feel fake, I can't connect to people and I'm constantly involuntarily dissociating/thinking while stacking shelves etc.

It doesn't help that I can't connect to anyone or anything and my vision is clear but its like my ability to connect/focus has been take away from me.

I would suggest shorter hours, don't feel obligated to do more if you don't have to. If your employer/manager is aware of your condition they should understand and make space for your needs.

I work 40 hours a week and go to school but like FirstAid said, I don’t connect at all I don’t feek any reward for doing a good job and I feel nothing. Same thing with college. It really sucks. I’m trying a few things in the future.

Where do you work at?
I work in a kitchen at a restaurant and I think the slamming of pots and pans and shit really trigger my paranoia, well I know it does, I use to work at a tire shop and all the loud noises would trigger my anxiety and all that, made me go crazy, but 6 months into working, it just now is coming back harder.. the paranoia and anxiety is, and I think it's cus 1 of our workers had to leave for a couple weeks and I filled in, pretty much worked 6 days straight, practically lived there, didn't get great sleep, but maybe that trigger something, cus I was okay working 25 hours a week, even tho that's really nothing, but yeah now my problems won't go away.. sounds bug the shit out of me, I'm super anxious and paranoid all the time, I feel like I make people uncomfortable, it really sucks.. but yeah, that's my sad story :/
