Job for person with Anxiety

I want a job where I don’t really talk to customers. Like a fastfood place just gets me anxious. Ive worked at packaging bottles and it’s killing me( all the movements) I just cant deal with people THAT much. So what do you recommend me? I’ve thought about cleaning houses that kind of stuff where I’ll just be cleaning with no interruptions and be alone for the most part. But I don’t have a car. #jobsearch #teenjobs #Housekeeper #parttime #entryle

Mental illness and job stability

I had troubles with an anxiety disorder when I was 21 years old, and was told that I would have some lasting effects from that. However, it has been a long time since that has had any bearings on my abilities to get or keep a job. Pacil was an amazing discovery, thank god.

AMEN!! PAXIL is a blessing!
