Ok , so given that Anxiety Disorders are vastly different from person to person, both in terms of severity and symptoms, do people reading this hold down jobs or careers and cope?
I was diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, GAD....
NMo panic attacks, just a dull constant annoying anxiety state !
My personal story is that I luckily have a master of engineering degree, and work in field sales management, so Beta Blockers help with my fearless presentation skills, and if I look a bit tired and jaded management think I must be working hard!
As crazy as that sounds I have held down a well paid job for 10 years, paid off 40% of a mortgage on a 3 bed semi, married and am about to have a baby boy.
Have you guys and gals managed to find a part time or full time job which you can stick at?
(I appreciate that some anxiety conditions require hospitalization and are very severe).
