Hello, first time here as i thought it might help getting other peoples opinions whilst remaining anonymous to everyone i know. Right, when i was just 13 i was in my town centre with friends and we all got beaten up by older people for money. This was the starting point for my anxiety. 7 years on now and its starting to be as bad or even worse than before. I work in a high responsibility job as an engineer and made a fault in one of my jobs. This lead to me being called into the office, having a telling off but eventually it lead to nothing other than that.But ever since then, every time i get a call from my manager - even if it is to just say hello - i have a mini panic attack and have to calm my breathing down. It got to a point where i was waking up every morning being sick as i was nervous to go into work just incase i made the mistake again. Ive been to see a councillor which helped a little but the times between appointments are too long to make any progress. Ive been given anti-depressants now as its made me so stressful it makes me break down and cry. I do like my job, but we do a 24 hour standby rota which makes my hours a week 55+ and I'm struggling to cope with it and i can't find anything to help. So what do you guys think? Thanks.
