  • Anxiety and concentration issues?

    I seem to really have trouble concentrating. When I sit down to study for example, it takes a long time before I get "in the zone" when reading. Until I get there, it's like my mind is obsessing about that I don't understand what I'm reading or that the work I have to do it too much, so I also tend to jump to one piece of text to the next aimlessly. I tend to do this with my thoughts as well. It's horrible for productivity and it even creates more anxiety. In a broader sense, I can also have trouble following a conversation because my focus is so fragmented. Anyone else experience this?
  • Career/Job and Anxiety

    What is a good career choice for a person with anxiety and/or social anxiety?
  • Do you have a high profile job. How are you managing day to day?

    I have a highly visible job. I am emotionally exhausted by the end of each day. My anxiety before a major deadline can be crippling, but I push through and burn out at the end of the week or month. I present a good front at work most of time, but it eats me up inside and I curl up when I get home and want nothing to do with the outside world. I've taken some steps, some I've been doing for years, others I just started and all of it helps. I know this is a lifelong personal journey and I'm not looking for a quick fixes. I'm curious how others have managed a position where they have to be "on" all / most of the time. Did you eventually change jobs? What do you think about while I work? How do you manage anxiety at work? Have you noticed how it shows up in your work, if it does? (mine shows up as perfectionism and OCD like rereading email I send several times)
  • Does anyone have issuees with Anxiety interfering with their work?

    Hi... I'm new at this but I've been struggling with anxiety and depression for years. It seems to come and go with how stressed out I am in my life, and I've recently come into a lot of stress with my health. I finally got the courage to go to my doctor about it, and there's a lot of things that he's suggested doing that are very scary to me and it's made everything flare up all over again. I'm starting a very strict diet that I am struggling with and it seems like everything makes me feel like I'm worthless, which triggers anxiety over how I'm going to end up alone with no one wanting to be around me because I'm freaking out all the time. I'm so scared I can hardly breath sometimes. My brain yells at me that I'm having a heart attack or that I have some weird disease no one can diagnose, or that I'm dying even though my doctor tells me I'm pretty much healthy aside from a few issues. I know it's a long explanation, but these attacks have started to happen in the middle of work where I can't necessarily ask everyone to stop what they're doing and let me take my meds and a breather and regroup. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, how do you handle it? Any help would be really appreciated, and anyone willing to lend an ear more so. I feel so isolated... like I'm the only one who doesn't have it together.

  • Tips for dealing with anxiety while in a job interview/starting a new job

    I've been looking for a new job since being made redundant from my previous job. I find that I get overly anxious about interviews and I have talked myself out of applying for jobs because the job description sounds scary and I'm not sure I could do the work, when clearly I could.
