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)
