    Oh yes!!! I went back to medical school and I am having the worst time finding motivation and focus. Whenever I do sit down to do it, I start overthinking everything and get overwhelmed and my anxiety gets worse 😵🙄😑

    I have the exact same issue. I jump from job to job in last 2 years. Once something happens in my world, I lose my focus and drive. I choose to run away from conflict or uncomfortable situations. Not able to take criticism or help from others at work as I look at myself as a failure. 😥

    Yes indeed, anxiety and depression, and I've had about 6 jobs in the past 2 years...

    Definitely I have never kept a job longer than a year until now it's been 1 year and 1 month since I started with my county job maybe the medication is helping

    Definitely. I've lost 2 jobs out of 3. Because of anxiety. & 1 out of three from depression. I try so hard & it doesn't seem to work.

      It's all be high pressure jobs like restaurant and fast food work but it's very hard to find anything else. But I start drowning so fast.

    My anxiety attacks made it impossible for me to get through a shift or rest at home at my last job. I haven't had one since (2019)
