When covid hit, I had to start working from home.
- I had to work in an office every day before covid and it was difficult for me to be around people.
I feel a lot of anxiety and often have panic attacks when I am around several people. When the boss suggested that we were going to work from home, I was very happy. I work for a cannabis timekeeping software company. The Cannabis timekeeping software company has several different clients and I provide it services. Sometimes there is a glitch in the software and those problems need to be fixed right away. I can access the program and each individual client. This allows me to fix any software problems or bugs in the system that might be occurring. Working from home was a lot of fun. I got to spend every single day with my dog. My dog was used to me going to the office for 8 hours and then I was home all day long. When the boss called and said that we were going to go back to the office for good, I was very hesitant to go back to the same job. It’s really hard not to feel a lot of anxiety every day. I do love my job at the cannabis timekeeping software company. It’s hard to say no and find another job. I have worked for a couple of other companies in their IT department and this particular company has some of the nicest owners. They really offer great benefits and a salary that is in the top range for a software IT person.
