Work With Mental Health Issues

So as many of you may know I have a lot of mental health issues. However i work with these mental health issues. Now, I wouldn’t say these are negative as they define who I am and what I am. One of my conditions is that i have Tourette’s Syndrome which is a neurological condition which causes my brain to function more than it should sometimes. It also causes my brain to function less than it should sometimes. The other day i saw a great video online on Youtube with someone trying to explain how it feels to have tics.

Now it doesn’t compare greatly but if you were to try to keep your eyes open, they would go dry. Now you need to blink. Don’t. Now keep holding your eyes open. That is similar to the way we feel when we need to tic except more extreme and all over our bodies.

Mental Health and Work

I also have depression, anxiety and psychosis which obviously doesn’t help. This means that not only am I rarely motivated to do anything, once I am I get scared and anxious to do it and then hear voices telling me that I can’t do it. The voices are wrong.Fast forward to now and I am currently building website and doing SEO (search engine optimization) from my own home. That means that I am in a comfortable environment and work when I want. I am able to work despite my hindrances. I can work with mental health issues.

If you have read this far I hope you realise that it is ok if you can’t work a 9-5 job. You can work if you want. There are so many things you can do. One of the websites I work on designs nightclubs and bars all over the world. That’s pretty dope. Hope you enjoyed this short read and confidence boost, just remember, to be unique and yourself. You can do anything you want.
