I'm so sick and tired at the moment. I am overwhelmed with stress,but, at the same time sick of this endless loop of mundane job searching. Young people face so much pressure to conform to societal expectation.
To pursue a good education, secure a decent job, buy a nice house and have nice a career. Of course, anyone (including me) wants this. But the world is moving at such a rapid pace I'm overwhelmed, depressed and sick whenever I log into Facebook I see how great people's lives are (yes I know its an illusion).
We have great expectations to live up to, theres no wonder young people are killing themselves because they cant find work they want.
I too, am no stranger to mental health illness. I am a graduate looking for work and I am sick of the same old routine on my days off. Get up, check my emails- see there is no job emails, apply for more jobs. Work on my latest design project (voluntary) and spend hours to get nowhere. My work feels inadequate.
Of course, i am in employment, which I hate- part of the problem. I've had nearly 5 days off already and im still depressed at my job.
I can't switch off.
I go back to doctors tomorrow to review my medication, but even that doesnt help.
I'm so tired.
