Anyone got tips on how to hold a job with anxiety and depression? I can ace the interview, but when it comes to actually going to the first day and starting the job I can’t do it. I’ll pack my lunch, dress appropriately, and leave the house excited and ready to go. Halfway through the drive the panic sets in. There’s been times I’ve had to pull over and vomit on the side of the road because the anxiety was so extreme.
I want/need to work so badly. We have two kids and I can’t keep letting my wife support us all I want to do my part.
What do you do to make it through work? Any tips to subside these symptoms, or overcome them?
