i was just wondering where everyone got their sources of income from, considering its very hard to hold a job for a solid period of time given feelings of depression and lack of motivation. personally, my depression, social phobia, and physical disability make it virtually impossible to get a job. I currently have no source of income sadly, as i am often deemed as being lazy and a quitter. Well, i went to school with near perfect attendance up until grade 11, so that shows I'm not excessively lazy, at least no more than the average person. Plus the fact that i attended, and took the bus everyday shows that i did try to overcome my feelings of social anxiety. despite this, i still always feel guilty, like I'm two totally different people, a motivated person, but too much of a coward. I tried to apply for welfare or "income support" but just because i don't have a doctors authorization stating that i cant work, I'm not eligible. they flat out tell me that i CAN work and that I'm not trying. one last thing, theres this thing called AISH, it stands for assured income for the severely handicapped. i applied for it and was denied, i wasn't surprised. But later on i discovered that a friends brother received aish and he was perfectly physically able of working, but had depression. another person, whom is a member of this forum receives aish, and they are also perfectly physically able to work. Now I'm not saying these people don't deserve the money they receive, but shouldn't i be receiving it as well? every person i talk to about this is shocked that i was denied, i used to think nothing of it, but I'm now realizing the injustice that Ive have been dealt. anyways, sorry for that unnecessary extension to this topic. so, where does your money come from?
