I’m 19 and have no job which is really hard. I have bad anxiety and I need a job so I can figure my life out but I can’t find one online. Anyone know of any jobs online

Without trying to appear sexist, would your anxiety keep you from being a waitress? My daughter didn't want to waitress but she got in at a Ritzy place, makes so much money that she might make it a career.

Yes it would keep me from doing that sadly. I want a job from home until I get on the right medicine and learn to control my anxiety. Thanks for the option though

Maybe do some part-time related to pleasant things you like, and go from there. I do think you can build up your strength in taking on jobs and stress as you get the hang of your anxiety. You'll get there! You can do anything. Just take it one step at a time.

I don't know if I'm allowed to promote the website but I write online and have off and on since 2009. I use the same site and have for years to find jobs. I used to just go on forums and websites and hit the "contact us" button and message and find jobs that way. It can be time consuming but it's cool to be able to choose sites you really like. Forums are a good place to start. The website is called Digital Point Forums. There is a Content section under Services (I believe) where you can view clients in need of writers to apply or you can create your own thread where you offer services (say, forum posts, blog posts or articles) and choose a price. I'm not sure if you can message on here but feel free to contact me if you're able and I can do my best to help you get started and stuff. I actually recently started writing for money again so it would be cool to have a writing buddy to run ideas by and just stay motivated and inspired with

You have lots of possibilities! I work in technology, and I'm blessed to work mostly from home. I go into an office when I want to, but it's nice that when the anxiety gets really bad I can hide out and still do my job. I say that not to make myself sound special, but to encourage you and let you know that anxiety doesn't have to hold you back from having a successful life and career if you want one. ♥️ You can go to school online these days for just about anything, and many jobs are available online. Writing is a great example, too - I used to take freelance writing jobs when I was younger. What are you interested in?

Currently I’m doing pennfoster to get my travel and tourism degree. I don’t graduate from that till May 19 but it’s good because I could be a travel agent from home and eventually when I get better I could go to an office.

online businesses like dropshipping can be a good alternative to the usual 9-5 stressful job. I’m trying to establish mine at the moment and hope that in maybe 6 months time I can hand my notice in and only work for myself.

ive always done merchandising. i go into grocery stores and do resets. ive done it for several years and its not hard to learn how to read planograms , set product, ect. if you like puzzles, youd love this job! and not all are done in grocery stores, there done in any kind of store. i chose grocery because i can go in at night when the store closes and work until i feel i want to quit. grocery always has a small night crew that works from midnight until the store opens, i never had to be around alot of people. thats another nice thing about merchandising, they usually let you work your own hours, you have a set amount of product that you need to reset for the week and you pick the days and hours you want to work, as long as you get it done in the week they want...they really dont care :) its normally only part time work tho. idk what your looking for. its a nice option for people that have an anxiety or panic disorder. but for me...my panic disorder has gotten so bad i had to quit :( its gotten so bad its hard for me to do anything. idk what im going to do?? but thats an option for you, they have positions in all states.
