I’m currrntly struggling with anxiety which is preventing me from leaving my home. I’m currently looking for jobs working from home. Any advise?

    Thanks for the replies. I am currently meeting with my GP regularly and we are exploring treatment options. Unfortunately they have not been much help so far. In fact it was my GP’s suggestion to start looking for home based employment. 
    I am currently employed but have been signed off as I cannot get to the office. I was working from home for a while, however my employer was not happy for this to continue. 
    I have experience in administration and have worked in the NHS for 7 years - this year. 
    Work will give me a purpose and help with my treatment however I am struggling to find lagitate home based work. 
    I am looking for administrative or customer service work. Although I am very open minded.
