Who would of thought that id randomly apply for a job and actually get it. Not only am i doing great, ive had three managers pull me aside and tell me that they want to start training me to have a position equivalent to theirs. I actually made the steps to be legit and get my drivers license too. Im not sure if im manic or something (im schitzoaffective) but i dont want to sink into another depression.
That seems like good news you got a job and your license. All you can really do is hope for the best. Depression and anxiety can come and go in your life. There’s no telling when it could happen. Staying busy, doing your hobbies, and another things you do for mental health is all that can be done. It’s never easy doing things when u have a mental illness. Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches. I do wish the best with ur job though. That can keep ur mind busy and away from thinking on other things.
my motto when dealing with such things is; “Don’t get excited”
maybe it’ll come to something, and maybe that something will be nice
maybe not, and that would be okay too
not getting too high while happy seems to help me not get so low when sad. That’s awesome that things are going well today, let it be that, it doesn’t have to be anything more, and it well may not be.
Concurred with the others…I’m happy for you, I can also relate in having my own successes in finding work, but also be ready for the flipside after.
Unless you have a job that truly makes you happy, eventually it’ll get boring or undesirable. Just ride out the downswings in emotion….most places do ‘extra’ things to make it fun for their employees.
While my last job was an annoying place, we also had a yearly boat cruise and other ‘parties’ that made it fun. Unfortunately many of the coworkers were crap and it was hard to make real friends…they were largely fake.
Additionally for me the work got so repetitive that it felt like prison, I was going a little crazy and I was so happy the day I finally quit.
So not to be a downer, just be prepared for the negative side also.
