Avoidant Personality: Good jobs

I have what probably is avoidant personality disorder and much more. I don't want to work with people. I'm willing to work the best that I can and as hard as I can but I can't keep jobs well and I do not want to work with people. What job would be good for a person like me? I need a good job to support me and my baby and get a good house one day and make good money but what can I do where I don't have to deal with people every day! This probably sounds strange to most people but I have intense social anxiety and many other problems. I can't hold a job especially customer service types and ones where I have to work with others! But I need something secure and make good money. Please help... what should I do or get a degree in? Atleast I can still get a degree in something if I know it will be right for me.

Re: Avoidant Personality: Good jobs

A lot of computer jobs enable you to work from home. Not sure what you would need for education or what specialized training is required though.

Re: Avoidant Personality: Good jobs

It would be really cool to find out which ones. I keep looking through career guides and books but really... I just want to work by myself and not worry about anything else. There's no career book that says "for people who don't want to work with others" ya know!

Re: Avoidant Personality: Good jobs

I was thimking about this last night as with my disorder it would be better off if I could get a job I could do from home and one of my cousins husbands runs his own web design company. I remember that comercial where you can access your work computer from home so that brings up dome more opportunities that would limit the amount of time you would actually have to go into the office. Just some ideas
