I want to work a regular job

Malaysia
January 1, 2017 4:49am CST
But I am afraid to accept the circumstances like I am arguing with my boss and colleagues, and the most important problem is that I get bored in the afternoon 3pm-4pm cos I have depression and schizophrenia. I must do the regular job as I want to and if I don't do then I don't have sufficient income to survive. I know there is online job as alternative but depending on it cannot bring sufficient income. Thinking about the job also a problem, some paperwork has deadline and too much to handle, I am thinking of saving money for the rainy days if I don't work a job outside. But I think I am useless and disobey child as my mother always encourage me to work outside to meet more people to let my depression recover. But still I have schizophrenia to handle. What should I do? Thank you mylotters who reply this discussion, I appreciate it very much.

You should look into getting a part time job for a few days a week. Shorter days may be better for you. I wish you all the best.

Personally, I can relate to this post. I many times miss working for someone else and having the guaranteed income, but I also have a lot of Health issues to where it is impossible for me to do so anymore. Now I work from home, and have had very good success with a company I have been with for almost 3 yrs now. Not always the Best of pay but there are times it almost matches what I used to earn when I could work.

I miss working for someone else because I feel I am productive and contribute to the society when I work for someone. But now since 6 years I stop working for someone else, I always feel bored and unhappy. I miss the overtime and criticism by the boss and mostly earn sufficient salary. At home I can do what I want, the discipline is not there, and I have try to do call center job lately. But they need to do overtime everyday until 8pm. And from 9am to 8pm is a lot of hours for me. Moreover I had mental illness that prevent me from working like a normal person. I only hope one day I could manage to earn sufficient income online so I plan to sell silver925 accessories in facebook.

You could start with part time and if your honest with your employer about your condition, they might give you a light job and part time, who knows.
