Should I get a part time job?

Before I start, I'd like to point out that I'm not spoiled or lazy. I've been dealing with the very real problems of depression and anxiety for most of my life, and for the past five years I've been working from home.

I could make just as much working from home as I could working part time. However I realize that having employment outside the home would boost my self esteem, get me socializing with other humans again, and give me a healthy routine to follow. I feel like I would be well enough to do this.
However I'm afraid that if it's the wrong job for me it could make things worse. I've heard enough tales of nightmare supervisors, difficult coworkers, etc. Those types of things could send me over the edge if they got bad enough.
I'm weighing the pros and cons but it would be nice to get some input from people who've been in or witnessed a similar situation. My other alternative is to volunteer somewhere and continue to work from home. Overall my goal is to get myself out of the house and doing something productive on a regular basis. Thanks guys.
