Thanks @LaLa and @Victimorthecrime I did get the job and accepted, it's full-time work, pay is minimal, but it does come with health coverage I was pleasantly surprised to find out. Most importantly I

Well just a quick update. I am still there and it seems to be getting a little bit better just from working hard and getting better at doing the job. Still not counting any chickens but grateful thing

Fingers crossed but I may have a min-wage work-from-home job. This will to two things if I get it: 1) pay my bills and 2) keep me in the labor force with an established large company.

Congrats, @Klingsor!!! I'm so happy about this news! You'll have an income, a good addition to your CV, and "something to do without the need to go to a collective of annoying, potentially infected people"!!!

I hope this luck you're not used to won't force your subconsciousness to some form of self-sabotage. I believe that you'll cope well. Even if it's not a job that could "make you happy", it's undoubtedly a step forward that allows you to get rid of the dangerous feeling that there's nothing to do (to move on from the dark place you'd been in for some time).

And, please, don't have high expectations of yourself, don't think you should be perfect and / or please everyone. I don't know if you have these problems, but if you had, it would explain the attitude and behaviour that I saw in the short video (of the overly anxious man) you posted with the comment that it describes you. And it could cause you unfounded problems in the new job. I hope you'll share your worries, complaints, ... as well as any everyday experiences anytime you'll feel like it. :)  

God luck!!

Haha; it seems I might have been too influenced by my own experiences in my new job! :D But in fact, here, I was thinking about your past bad experiences with coworkers.

Thanks @LaLa and @Victimorthecrime I did get the job and accepted, it's full-time work, pay is minimal, but it does come with health coverage I was pleasantly surprised to find out. Most importantly I won't have to move, my routine won't have to change all that much and it will even add some much needed structure to my days. That all is good for my mental health. I might talk more about it in my blog. Thanks for the well wishes and kind words.

Good to hear.  Can you say what field of endeavor?

Prefer not to. It will pay my bills for now and that’s enough to get me through the rest of this hellish thing called 2020. Also you can tag people which triggers a notification without quoting their entire post by typing an @ symbol followed immediately by their name. Example: @Klingsor (It didn’t turn blue here because I didn’t actually select my name from the menu that pops up, so the editor is reading it as just a text string). Some of us have anxiety issues with our posts and often delete or modify them. I am aware the admins can likely see the originals and all the edits, but they won’t share it publicly without immediately compromising the trust of their members on a mental health board. Just FYI because I always feel like I’m on trial when it’s done to me continually. When I quote somebody I try to strictly confine it to the pertinent sentence (or sentences if it’s verbose).

Unfortunately, they can't. They can see hidden posts, but when you edit your post, the original is forever gone. :( Only people who have e-mail notifications for new posts (if it's possible here - I'm not even sure, I just know it works for private messages) can probably see the original post in their e-mail.
