I don't feel so good right now and just realized that my anxiety is everywhere in everything I do. I recently and finally had the courage to tell my boss that I can't work anymore at my job unless I get help. I was proud of sending the email, then I waited for the reply and became so stressed and anxious, then when I finally got the email my anxiety came and I didn't dare to open it. I told myself I had to and opened it, my boss told me that it was unfortunate to hear and that they would try to help me. I became happy and stressed at the same time, one voice in me said that, "-yeey help". the other one, "- o no I have to try to co-op with someone else who doesnt work the way I do and, should I have sent that email in the first place."

Now Im waiting for work to begin and my anxiety is just with me all the time and I don't know how you can live with this. I try to meditate every day and do breath exercises but it just goes back to normal everytime.
Got dammit :(

Hello and welcome. I've suffered for many years and found to my surprise that I was not alone! At work I too got to the place where I had to say I could not cope and it was a relief because I found that some of the people I worked with also were suffering. We kind of created a self-supporting group who looked out for each other. Also these days companies take this more seriously. I know it is more difficult in these Covid days of emails and so on rather than face to face but help is around. We just need to know where to look. Take care.

Welcome to the forum. Make yourself at home. We all suffer from one thing or another. So you are never alone.

Hi. And welcome. No you are never alone on here. We all know and understand. Hesitation and procrastination are hallmarks of anxiety. 'Shall I shan't I?' Never refuse help if it is sincerely given. So may bosses just don't understand anxiety. This is totally different to just feeling stressed out at the end of the day. That passes with rest. Anxiety is ongoing 24/7, or it can be if we allow it. If your boss wants to help then co-operate. If it doesn't work out you have at least tried. So many people in charge don't understand anxiety and can be harsh when it comes to helping. Try not to be impatient. Anxiety has come about for a reason. Stress can bring it on and is one of the major causes, but what caused the stress? I know very little about you so it's difficult to comment. But when you are able sit down and look at your lifestyle and how you live. There may be a clue there. Also you can accept your feelings and emotions and not fight or struggle with them. That's a fight you can never win.
Good to have you with us. As you seem to see the value in a hug then here's one from me. :)
