What you have described sounds more like depression, but you can easily get depressed if you are having problems dealing with the world. Is there any way your GP can send you for a diagnosis? It would help more to know what specific problems you have had in jobs. Can you list a few jobs you've had and the specific problems you had in them? It is good news that you have not been fired, but left of your own accord. This may mean the mistakes seem bigger in your own head than they actually were (depression). In terms of the kids, mine don't listen to me when I am tired/ depressed. They seem to know that I have zero energy to fight and enforce a boundary and so they push it and I don't have the energy to enforce it. It's always what you need the least but it seems to happen every time I am ill in any shape or form.
Hi thanks for your reply.i was going to phone the doctors today.
Another issue is a hate using the phone.
I don't know what to say to the receptionist.
Giving customers too much change. Giving refunds but giving them too much money. Forgetting how to log onto computers. Answering the phone with details of a previous company. Shutting the door with they keys still in but the door locks behind. Putting clothes next to a heater burning them. Sending wrong deliveries out. I could go on.
I need the money but I'm scared to go to work as I know I'll mess up.
My current job is only over Christmas. I'll need to apply again but I know I'll mess up.
Good ideas, Random. Google those things. Dyslexia can make you disorganised and also struggle with working out change, reading clocks etc. If you can work out what it is, with help from research and the doctor, you will be able to have strategies to help.
To be honest, the things you have done, if you did them over several years aren't that bad. Silly mistakes when your mind is elsewhere. If it was over a few months, a bit worse. Take any job you can, if I were you, do it to the best of your ability. Work and being productive really helps depression too.
My daughter is dyslexic but so is my husband so i assumed she ad it from him. In sure I am too but I've never been tested. Maybe it's dyslexia plus anxiety plus OCD. There is no help for me if that's the case? I'm already on tablets X
PS. I also hate, hate, hate phonecalls. If it's better to go to the doctor reception in person, then do that. They can't ask what the problem is unless you're trying to get an emergency appointment and even then I don't think they could insist.
