I have suffered anxiety for a few years but in the past month it has become increasingly bad. I can't bring myself to get out of bed, go to work or even call in sick. I only started this job 4 weeks ago and have had 4 days off sick due to the anxiety. It is just getting worse and worse. I don't know what to do. Part of me wishes I had a physical problem so at least people could see & understand why I'm bed ridden. I have awful thoughts of harming myself just so I have a reason for some help.
I don't want to lose my job or look bad to the company. But my anxiety is so bad I physically cannot force myself to go to work. What should I do? I have organised meetings with a psychiatrist that will last 6 weeks but they start in January. How can I explain to my work what is happening and how do I get past this?
