I have been very forgetful for awhile now and it seems to be getting worse. I've also been going through a severe bout of depression and anxiety. I"m sorry if this post is confusing. There is a lot going on in my head.
To start, I applied for sec. 8 housing in a county that was still talking applications. This was 2 yrs ago. Today I got a form letter from them saying they are updating their waiting list. They list the things you're supposed to report. One of the things is job status and changes are to reported within a few days. I didn't report the part time job I had for a short time. I didn't think they would need that until I was called in for a review appt. I was on sec. 8 many years ago so I a different county so I've been through the process before. Boy, was that a mess. But that's a long and different story.
Now I'm very freaked out. I afraid I'll be taken of the list and I feel like dumbest person in the world. The office isn't open Friday's so I can apologize for my mistake and find out what they want me to do. I put it on my calendar for Monday to call them. Now I'll probably worry about it all weekend and continue to be miserable.
I think my brain is angry with me for forgetting something important so it's punishing me. I was trying to cheat the system or get away with something for nothing. I forgot because I was contraiting on my part time job after not working for several years.
It's hard to remember evening no matter how many reminders you put out. I know why they ask for the info. It's to make sure help goes the right people.
Also, I have an appt on the 25th with a neurologist because I developed Vertigo about a month ago and it hasn't gone away. The left side of my face feels like my Bell's Palsy came back and my that same side of my head there's a feeling of pressure. I thinking whatever is going on in there is contributing to my forgetfulness and frequent bouts of depression and anxiety.
I do have a place to but the rent just gone up so it's expensive to live here like everywhere else.
Has anyone experiences like these?
I've just been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of school work I have. I get frustrated because these classes are not even that difficult, I'm just not the best student. :( I'm trying hard to overcome these challenges but sometimes I just want to shut down and take a nap. I was almost in tears on the train home because of all the homework I have to do. I don't even know how to ask questions in...
STARTING TO FEEL LIKE “why did I ever get into the human services field”!!?? I KNOW MY INITIAL REASON WAS BECAUSE OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND WANTING TO HELP YOUTH LIKE ME, BUT NOW THAT IVE GOTTEN MY FEET WET A LITTLE ITS A LOT MORE STRESSFUL, EMOTIONAL AND ALMOST REGRETFUL. Between the way the staff members leave me hanging and the way the youth stress me out (usually when I’m alone to deal...
