Return of anxiety


Hi everyone. It has been several months since my last post, probably almost a year. I have severe anxiety and was going through an extremely tough time a few months ago, but I got my meds adjusted and things had been going very well. I graduated from college in May and immediately started my first adult job. When i first started, I thought I was really going to like it. Then, when I started to feel differently, I told myself it would get better. Now it has been six months and not only are things continuously getting worse every day, my anxiety has come back with a vengeance. I have breakdowns and cry frequently because this is not a career I want to pursue, and have found no other leads on jobs. This huge obstacle in my life has caused me to go back to my old ways and I am feeling extremely down and like I am very stuck.

I don't know what else to do except try to stay positive and continue looking for another job. I turned to this support group because back when I posted regularly, this community really did help me feel better and gave great advice.

Thank you for reading, and I genuinely hope you have a great day.

Oh dear. This is me at my job. I don't know what to tell you except that I totally understand. I think you are on the right track with trying to stay positive and looking for other opportunities.

Yes, stay positive and keep the job you have while looking for another, best time to find a job is when you have one and aren't desperate or down. To help w your anxiety, take magnesium (malate is best type) and ginseng, they will help calm your mind body and spirit and get rid of sticky negative thoughts that loop around and drain you. You've got this, you can do it and you can enjoy life again! =) Hang in there! Also, speak positive truths to yourself to counter negativity, you are worth it!
