Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I am not made for adult life. And I don't mean that in a fun-making, sarcastic, facebook-post kind of way, like "haha I don't know how to adult, like if you can relate". I actually mean it. I have a psychological disorder that makes me be afraid of practically everything you have to do as an adult. Make phone calls, talk to strangers, grocery shopping, informing yourself about things like taxes. And, what sucks the most: jobs. I am someone who needs a lot of alone-time, and an 8hr job (plus breaks, plus commuting) makes that mostly impossible. I've had 3 jobs so far, just tiny little jobs to finance college, and I quit all of them as soon as I could, even though they weren't even full time, because I couldn't handle the stress (partly because of my disorder, partly because I'm weak). I don't know if it's because I'm mentally underdeveloped (I've always been a few years behind everyone else), or if I'll never be a functioning adult. I just know that my life is going to go downhill very fast in the next few months, and that I don't know how to handle it.

  • Don't feel too bad. Just because you're not there yet doesn't mean you'll never get there. Look at how far you've come already!

  • I think a lot of people wouldn't do adult stuff unless they had to like taxes, I use TurboTax no shame in doing what it takes just to get stuff done. I recommend saving money anyway you can and look for places that will direct you to free help or courses to help you adult. Also try to find a job that will gradually try you in something. I work at the YMCA, they pay to train you in CPR and you can work in fitness or child care etc.
