    I am 18. At 16 I left school with no qualifications, I have mostly U grades in GCSEs other than an E, D and F, I do have entry level 3 functional skills English and maths and now doing level 1 but I'm worried about my future still, I want to work with animals and it's competitive so I want a good level of education and just to prove myself and everyone wrong and that I can do it, I do have severe anxiety, depression and low iron which caused me to fail but I haven't given up, I just constantly worry that I will end up in a horrible job of crappy paid one with no chance of getting anywhere. My other jobs that I wouldn't mind doing are office work, receptionist in a vets, painting or photography.  I really want to be able to drive and afford a car soon and I know I'm going to have a hard time finding a decent paid job without a decent level of education, I just really want a career, I know animal jobs aren't paid much either but it doesn't bother me too much. I'm considering pre access, access then maybe uni but if not uni access is level 3 so I'm happy to just get that qualification and I'm going to volunteer in a few more animal places, I already do doggy day care.  I want to travel, have a good life, have a career, eventually rent an apartment, have a car, things like that really, things you can't really do on minimum wage and at crappy jobs.  Just need advice on how to get here. I know I made a big mistake by getting Us in GCSE English and maths.

I also have some itchy dry skin between my fingers, only on 1, also both hands by my wrists I've got very dry itchy skin and I think it's eczema, I have suffered with it my whole life but my face breaking out is new and so is the random itchy redness inbetween my fingers. Anyone know what this could be? I don't want to go to the doctors as it could be nothing, it's Christmas so could be very busy and they're not very good in my area, just need some advice on what to do, I also have a lot of contact with my cats, 1 of them licks my hands all the time, never my face though, I also have done volunteer work recently in a zoo, could it be related to animals or is it some soap allergic reaction or just winter, or my eczema?

    Okay so I have an anxiryu disorder and it's mainly physical now rather than emotional but I know what it's like to have it bad, like really bad to the point you don't or can't leave the house, I failed GCSEs after cracking under pressure and going through hell in school and had 0 help with my anxiety, I was treated very badly unlike some other people who did get help, that stressed me out even more, I had issues with it in college too, but now I'm working in a restaurant/fast food place and had barely any anxiety issues, it helps knowing I'll be paid but also I've also done volunteer work and not had a lot of anxiety issues, so I know it can be done, I never gave up and now I have a job, not a very good paid one but at my age with no paid work experience it was hard, it's hard for a lot of people even with a lot of qualifications, I passed entry level 3 maths and English too, so my question is do you think it could be classrooms that really set my anxiety off? I have it outside of the classroom too but not even close to being as bad as it was during college and school, bare in mind I had a lot of issues ever since I started school from nursery. Also I do need to go back to college to get more qualifications as I can't find any apprenticeships for next year to do with animals, what shall I do? I'm hoping to stay at pizza hut for as long as I can as well.

    Why are people so quick to judge minimum wage workers? Thousands of people including those with degrees can't get jobs so why blame education? Why judge fast food workers who are older than 30? At least they work instead of sitting around not even looking for jobs and getting benefits when they're fully capable of working.
