Some who live with a mental illness may find it difficult to work at times. This isn’t uncommon and it is a definite draw-back to living with this type of condition. I, myself, have been in this situation many times and find myself both worried and frustrated. I seem to get so excited and “pumped” to begin a new job, but then I end up finding out that it is just too much for me to handle. Sometimes I feel that getting to work is the hardest part. Once I get to work, I am usually okay, but just getting there is strenuous. There are struggles I encounter at work too occasionally though. Sometimes I will feel overly emotional, anxious, and/or irritable which makes it terribly difficult to concentrate and perform well while at work. Also, I notice that I become overwhelmed incredibly easily to the point that I need a break or to quit.
With that being said, I began to look into other options for the times that I just simply cannot work. I thought I’d share some of these opportunities because I know many have encountered the same or similar issues. I have compiled a list of opportunities that may be a great option for those who live with bipolar disorder or any mental illness. The majority of these are work-at-home positions – thanks to PennyHoarder.com.
