i have lucked into a nice job where i do receive support but i will never tell them the entire truth about my "deal". because it is hilarious how much the description of my deal just sounds like "im unemployable"
@unsuspicious i think it's a smaller part of the thing where no one ever really stops being a baby, they just evolve a sort of simultaneous adult in their personality to take care of the part of themselves that can't emotionally regulate and just wants to lie around eating sweets all day. but it's wild to me that there are people in the world who can just show up to work every day and do their tasks and it's not a big deal!! it's bananas, to me
my coping strategies for getting work done are a ramshackle rube goldberg machine made out of guilt, fear, resentment and lies. every day i wake up and have to do the employment equivalent of tricking an increasingly wary feral cat into taking its kidney medicine, where i am both the cat and the cat's caretaker. every consecutive day that i manage to remain employed and pay rent comes as a fucking shock to me
The only 'pressure' on me right now is to keep up with my learning, but that's not a problem for me as I've always been academic (see also: a complete nerd)

I have a voucher for a free vehicle MOT at a Halfords auto centre to be redeemed before the end of May. It’s of no use to myself or anyone else that I know and it would be a shame to waste it.
The first person to send me a DIRECT/PRIVATE reply will get the voucher and I’ll update this thread publicly to confirm it’s been taken.
