Yesterday I got an e-mail inviting me to an interview for the job I applied for, and my first thought, honestly, was "great, one more fucking thing."

That's the same thought I had about the last one. It is so inconvenient having depression, it really is.

Yes. Yes it is.

Would you like a virtual hug? And/or pictures of cure fluffy animals?

I've definitely found it useful to positively reassure employers that, yes, I can deal with taking instructions from people who are both younger and less experienced than I am, that I know that's what I'm letting myself in for.

(I'm guessing the younger people aren't colleagues in this context but I figured I may as well mention anyway!)

That makes sense. Maybe the opportunity to expand yourself in that way could be part of what attracts you to the position! Good luck.

:) Yay well done for arranging a Jen visit already. Hoping that enthuses you a bit and is able to kick the depression a little.

Congratulations on the interview and commiserations about the depression - There's a job I really want, I'm relatively likely to get, but I can't get my arse in gear to apply for because the depression and fatigue are kicking my backside.

Congratulations on the interview. Even though it feels like one more stressful thing to deal with right now, I hope it goes well. Also, even just getting called in for an interview means that you've already made a positive impression; that they're interested in you in a good way. Good luck with it!

Holy moly that's a good tag.

One more is (surprising, to me) on Reddit

has pictures of one beast/human touching another on the nose, gently.
