Im personally not diagnosed with anything so im hoping that doesn't make me an imposter. To give you some details, im incredibly shy and definitely consider myself socially anxious, and feel this has turned into depression. Im now 30 years old and feel I have very little prospects, I have done various warehouse jobs in the past but have also had long periods of unemployment. I believe things should be taken one step at a time, so for now my main focus is to try and get a job. I suppose my question is if there is any support for people with depression to find work? not being diagnosed would obviously make this difficult, but maybe being going for counselling would be a benefit, like are there any organisations that can make going into a job easier.
There are other difficulties im facing, i've isolated myself from family other than immediate, my social circle has pretty much disappeared, im still living at home and to be completely honest I find it difficult to make myself accountable for my time at all. For just over a year and a half I have been clean of alcohol and cannabis so I atleast give myself credit for that, I just find it incredibly hard to see myself getting out of the rut i've created.
Apologies if i've rambled on or ask a silly question. I don't mean to write negatively as I actually do have a determination and a willing to help myself. As I say, any advice would be appreciated and hopefully i'll be able to return the favour.
