Finding some part time work

Post by jaffakiwi on Mon Feb 28, 2011 11:23 pm

I had an appointment with Workbridge today. They help people with disabilities find work, and depression counts as a disability.

I might have a small cleaning job, a couple of hours each morning. It's not glamorous, but at least it would be a reason to get out of bed each day... and because it's only a few hours a week it won't intefere with my sickness benefit much.

Then we went round the corner and met another women who has an opportunity for me in recycling computers. This is more up my alley but the position isn't established yet so it would be volunteer work... with perhaps a small cut of any money made onselling the computers. At least it would give me something to do. The great thing is the lady seemed really supportive, and was full of understanding and advice on coping with depression. I think I'd like working for her...

I'll admit I'm hardly jumping over the moon about either of these opportunities, but I guess it beats lying in bed all day - which is where I've been at recently.

Well done JK, big ups.

They may only appear to be small steps but trust me they can lead onto bigger things.

Yip, what Poetry said, JK.

You might also find website development or maintenance opportunities come your way from some of the groups that they sell recycled computers to?

Mind you, the income from the other opportunity isn't to be sneezed at is it, because in itself, that may offer different opportunities to you when it comes to spending it.

If ya was schitzo I'd just say, 'Take both Jobs' but ya not, which is why making the decision is harder. Good Luck, mate.
