I quit my job due to anxiety/depression.

Probably the 7th or 8th time I've quite or dropped out of school due to this. I've felt worst in the past but things aren't all that good now either.

I'm looking for some kind of grocery store clerk type position or just stocking shelves in the mean time. My last job was retail sales related as well but it was computer hardware which is much more my type of things but the customer interaction and 1 hour commute each way was driving me crazy. A few years back when I was on some medication that was working and things looked really up I was working at a 7-11 as assistant manager / acting manager.

I'm on medication and see a psychiatrist, also have referral to a different therapist and group therapy group. I'm registered to go back to school this coming Sept and hope that by then things are better. They will have to be if I'm to take on the course load I have lined up. I HAVE to get myself some type of degree or another moving forward though. I'm living at home with my parents at 30 and they are about to retire soon so I NEED to get my own life started, or crash and burn trying. Would help me if I could get some friends or a girl friend but I've never managed to even get close to a girl let alone date. At least I have my smarts going for me and I've managed to save up about $70k in the past several years.

I wouldn't be surprised if a busy 7-11 corporate store with gasoline had a manager earning over $60K per year. These stores are fairly high volume businesses and there is rarely more than two people on the clock at any given time. There is plenty of real managing to be done at these stores in terms of staffing, merchandising, loss prevention, and even marketing. It's not like some other places where everything arrives in a packet and a third grader could do it, if he could get people to obey him.

I'm calling bouncy if not on all of it then certainly the second part.
Even sucking off of mom and dad living in the basement, 70k is a lot of scratch to be putting away particularly is you are paying for psycho meds and therapy.

..but curiously, he didn't talk about the reason for his depression. Was he depressed because of his commute, his customers, his boss? Newsflash, DUmmie, work can suck, but we do it anyway so we can provide for our family and ourselves with the pleasures of life.

Depression is a pretty ugly thing. It's not simply about being unable to deal with the world or with responsibilities. Much of it is about brain chemistry. Of course there are things you can do and ways you can train yourself to think more optimistically and not wallow in negative thinking, but again depression, based on brain chemistry can defeat even that.

I have to hand it to Locut0s, he/she isn't blaming the government or others about the situation. It seems like he/she is doing what can be done by taking medications, going to school, and continuing to look for work that he/she is able to do.

I hope it works out for him/her.

the guy is living at home, living off mommy and daddy while sitting on 70k, dependency is strong with this one.

Clinical Depression is a difficult thing to live with and he's something in the past about it, but it's not enough really. He needs a healthy situation and living with mommy and daddy isn't it.

He was an assistant manager/acting manager. So yeah, that is looking up. It's honest work.

As for his current situation, I hope he gets better.

But being depressed is the typical DUmmy mantra. Most often one of them is depressed and use it to gain sympathy so I take anything dummies have to say with a grain of salt.

I take depression very seriously and I don't think somebody with those problems should be kicked while they're down just because of their politics.

He's depressed because he is a DUmmy.

Liberals share this trait and are inherently depressing people. Everything is negative in their worldview. They have accepted and eagerly swallow the Koolaid of lies provided for them. They then feel obligated or worse, instinctively defend the indefensible, constant stream of liberal lunacy that has no logical defense. They know in the deep recesses of that small but not yet atrophied part of their brain cells, that they are wrong, but they cannot free themselves of the disease of liberalism that first attacked and destroyed the cells responsible for honesty.

Sadly, there is a known cure for the education deficency, we call it facts and logic. The trouble is that the cure (facts and logic) for the psychological disorder, require a modicum of honesty in order to take hold. Usually by the time a liberal is first diagnosed, the honesty cells have been attacked and the necrosis of honesty is too far gone.

Liberalism usually ends badly with the symptoms of terminal illness being constant orange stains on the hands and groin area of their underwear and a distinctive aroma of marijuana emanating from every pore.

All thumbs are finger, but not all fingers are thumbs.

All liberals are mentally ill, but not all mentally ill are liberals.

That sums it up.

You mean like the DUmp did to Tony Snow when he was dying and eventually died from cancer?:rolleyes:

DUmmie's just practicing the spiel for the disability claim. And 'Assistant Manager' at a c-store or a fast-food trough usually boils down to being beat like a rented mule since it's 'Management' and so it's FLSA exempt.
