I hope I've got this right, so please bear with me being a newbie!
I've started a new job and looking back over the last 25 years of being employed, every time I've started a new job or had a big change I go through hell and back during the first few weeks. I feel very sick, very anxious, ready to cry and walk out of the job at any time. In fact, twice after 3 days and 8 days in different jobs I've done just that. Now I'm 47 its quite a senior HR job in a business, I've got to deliver very quickly and it is so stressful and exhausting just getting to work and existing never mind doing the work. I really don't want medication and I know it will get better over time but its the worst feeling I can think of. How can I make this tension and anxiety go away or at least manage it please? I would really appreciate your help in any way.
