I'm currently in grade 12 and I have to balance my DD life with studying. My mom's telling me to get a job to work part time on the weekends. I've had a job before but it was only in the summer where I didn't have to balance DDing with studying. Although that job was everyday, it was only for a few hours and I didn't have to constantly socialize with coworkers and deal with custormers(I worked with kids). In this current job, I'll be a cashier, I'm not sure how many hours I'll have to work but along with MD I have social anxiety. I often don't even like being around friends. Although I like hanging out with them once in a while but I'll have to recharge right after. I'm scared doing this job will trigger my social anxiety and will take away my DD time. And as a result I may not do that well in school either. If I choose not to do it however, I'll feel unproductive and feel like I'm not contributing to my mom enough. Any advice?

You may find that the job reduces your DD and I do recommend taking the job because you have to get started balancing it out sometime. The best way to handle your social anxiety is to expose yourself to as many different situations that make you uncomfortable and eventually you will get through it. Keep your head up and good luck. :-)
