I'm seriously considering trying to apply for SSI.
I don't know what to do. I can't hold a job. When I try to it just doesn't work. I get so anxious and I just leave. Or I stare at the clock intently feeling the pressure in my chest waiting to leave.

good luck with that. i've been trying for a year, and they always reply with "get a job with no stress" like it exists. you might save yourself the trouble and contact an attorney to see if you have a case.

What kind of job has no stress. I find that when I can get office manager jobs with too many tasks I stay busy enough to not freak out. But I definitely can't handle retail jobs.

the jobs i'm most qualified for are in food service, and that's a very stressful field. bunch of wankers working at ssi, i swear.

I would kill myself in food service. :/

i've chopped off the tip of a few fingers and knuckles. kitchens can be really hectic. i love to cook though.

Sooo you want free money because, like everyone else in the world, work stresses you out? Come on...

i think neko went that route and got like $86 a month or something.
life is stress. work is stress. dealing with it is adulthood.

not being able to deal with it can sometimes mean lots of medication that puts you to sleep for days at a time.

right, no one can live off $86 a month anyway.
2010-09-11 10:10:29 ET
i thought if you bummed around on people's couches you could totally have internet and drugs for less than $86 a month

oh true. see I'm used to paying for rent, utilities, food, car payments, insurance, internet, gas, etc., so I forgot there were people out there who mooched off others for a living.

i remember them every time i look at my pay stub and see that chunk of money missing.
2010-09-12 14:18:34 ET
I don't pay into social security...

Yeah, though, I can't collect on this period of my life when I retire, and I have to pay for my own Long Term Disability insurance, in case of the unforseen.
