    I know it sounds very precious and sad but I just can't handle a full time job. It's depressing and even though I don't mind the work that much it just gets me down. All i can think about is how happy I was before I started and even on my days off I have severe anxiety. Does anybody have any advice on where to look or where to start in the search for working from home? I've seen a few sites which can give you freelance work online but you have to pay beforehand before even seeing anything. It seems like a scam.

    Any advice is appreciated. There's always part time work available but its not really suitable for a long term career and doesn't have great pay anyways. My highest level of education is currently A levels at grades BCC so fairly average. I also have a year experience in an office both full and part time and other various positions in retail and bartending. I have been looking at some IT apprenticeships in my local area which are obviously full time and it has really gotten me down so this is an alternative I am looking at which is making me feel better about things.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

    I think the first thing you need to do is sort out your anxiety. Go and see your GP and get help. You need to look after yourself first and get to a stage where you're handing your stress and environment well enough to get a part time job and then work your way up to full time work.

    Unfortunately a long term career will need you to work full time or have a very focused part time job that will get you somewhere. You need to focus on one thing that you want to do career wise and work towards it.
