does anyone else have anxiety and or depression and find it hard to work/keep a job?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Absofuckinglutely. I'm worried about my future and being able to maintain a steady income. 😥
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.
Literally just today I had a panic attack due to someone mentioning something to me.
I know all to well I lost 3 jobs that way
My anxiety and depression took over I couldn't stand to stay at work
I have anxiety and have trouble being in a big crowd and my depression is bad as well
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)
