I'm just looking for a little advice because I feel completely lost. I suffer from severe depression and generalized anxiety disorder. I took some time off work and started seeing a therapist, which is really helping. Basically, I hadn't been in my job long, so because of my long absence they have just written to me saying they are terminating my contract as I didn't pass the probationary period. I was expecting this to happen anyway but it has made me feel so bad. I don't know what to put on my CV and I think as soon as any employer learns what happened they won't consider hiring me at all. When I told my doctor about it, he wasn't going to bother giving me a sick line, he told me to register for job seekers allowance. I'm worried if I do this I will be pushed into another call centre role, which contributed to my problems in the first place. And if I work full time then I wont be able to continue getting help by seeing a therapist etc. I have no idea what to do and it is making me feel a thousand times worse. I feel ashamed and worthless not working, but I also feel I need help in order to get better. I feel like I'm in a catch 22 situation because if I don't work then I'll have no money and then rent and bills and debt will just consume my life, but if I take on a full time job I cant handle, I will end up even more unwell. I'm only 24 and I feel like my life is heading no where. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thank you.
