Hello I know I asked this question before and due to my autism and mental health issues etc, I repeat questions mainly for reassurance etc.

I'm feeling really guilty for only working paid part time jobs on permitted work with the support group on esa, one lasted two months and the other lasted a month...

I've tried volunteer work in the past but haven't been able to sustain it due to my anxiety and autism.. I really want to either work from home or work for myself one day..  but I feel that volunteering somewhere may help me get some structure and routine, I'm not well with my autism and mental health by any means.. but..  I just want to have some kind of purpose.

Should I feel bad for not working and my situation? Is there anyone like me too?

Many thanks.
