I said “Oh, shit!” when I saw the question “are you disabled, such as having depression” when applying for a job on-line.
Didn’t expect that to happen.
Thoughts ran through my my head. What if I answer yes? Will they hire me? What if I get the job and then they change their minds? What if I get the job and depression hits me hard again?
Crap! How am I going to handle this?
One day at a time, I guess. Statistics claim that one in five people in the United States has depression. While at the grocery store last week I counted “one, two, three, four, he’s got it.” Out of twenty five people waiting in line (including kids) five of us had depression.
Because I’m not alone, I shouldn’t be disqualified from having a job.
I guess I can stop being afraid now.
Wish me luck!
