I hate that I can’t work. I started a new job and it’s so overstimulating that I’ve just been crying and having meltdowns constantly. It’s so unfair.

    I ended up quitting my job that I hadn’t even had for three months back in September because of the anxiety and overstimulating environment. I worked at a Best Buy. It was just too much, with all the TVs flashing different promotional crap, and lights everywhere. Who knew technology can get THAT overwhelming?!

        not only that, but there was so much stress and anxiety that I had a huge blowout and panic attack one day, and right then and there, I quit. Also, the management was not understanding with me having autism. (Like every other business.) 🙄

        This. You couldn't melt and pour me into another retail job. I worked black Friday at a Walmart one year. I was literally afraid for my life.

    I've just handed my notice in. I've worked there nearly 3 months. I have a partner who has CMT and a baby who is 1 on new years eve. Work was way too much for me. I'm now a stay at home mum so I can focus on my wellbeing and be there with my baby. If I'm having a bad day I can take it easy, if I'm really active I can take my son out somewhere x
