Well, I'm back on disability starting tomorrow, I finally couldn't stand the social pressure from work, so yeah, have to take a definite break from work. It had been stressing me out lately, so my psychiatrist said I'll be back on disability for my mental well-being.
Why? Because I had relapsed due to some RL drama and my own OCD acting up again, due to some untamed triggers I have in life currently, I can't stand human relationships at all. I wanna feel free from everything and disability lets me do just that. Free from any financial stress. I'll be on it for life actually too. I had a 2nd medical certificate on my mental conditions not improving so yeah.
Anyways, at least I have tried working but have failed! But what matters is I have tried! Thus I'm not a quitter but a winner and a survivor in life. Too much social pressure and tension daily even with 1 person at a time only. So yeah.

At least you've had some form of long-lasting employment. Me, on the other hand, I've been searching for a permanent part-time job for nearly twenty years. I think I'm best suited to office admin. I'm good at filing, photocopying and data entry, though I sometimes find it difficult to deal with customers. However, I've faced discrimination. As soon as potential employers see or hear the words 'mild intellectual disability', they seem to automatically assume that my reading and writing skills are poor. I'm actually very good at reading and writing. I also have a small number of physical issues that prevent me from doing certain tasks.
Another thing I've noticed whilst job hunting is that businesses seem reluctant to employ multiple people to do different parts of one job. Especially in office admin, employers want one person who can handle finances, organise meetings, deal with customers, order supplies and do various other things. They don't want to employ one person to do half the job and another person to do the other half.
