job worry

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hello, my anxiety has become very silly over the last year or so. I miss the times when I was carefree and didn't let things affect me now everything seems to affect me and particularly with work. I always worry I am not good enough and that my work colleagues think i'm rubbish. I have had five jobs in this year I don't know what has happened to me I seem to be fine at first and then I feel trapped like it is the worst job in the world. I am not feeling like that currently as much and I realise this is become I have finally started taking medication so I think this was mainly linked to depression. I suffer from acid reflux when I am stressed, Health anxiety, social phobia and depression/anxiety. I think i'm ticking all the boxes so far. I am sick of always thinking the worst, always worrying about work and my health/family. I cannot keep moving jobs forever I have a mortgage now and my biggest fear is that I will be so depressed that I cannot work does anyone else suffer with this? I was so depressed this time last month I thought I was going to have a breakdown and give up my job then where would I be!! I find it so hard to stay calm but I do sleep well this has never been a problem for me. I want to be fitter definately I don't eat terribly but I don't drink enough either and meds have made me very thirsty and tired but I have always been tired easily for years and years. sorry for the rambling on just scared that this will be with me forever and that noone will understand around me

    I got caught up in this situation when I changed job in Summer 2013. Can you get something from the GP to help you with anxiety ? Are you currently taking anything ?

    I so can empathize and I took the line to go self employed, taking control more of my life ?
