I've always been an anxious person and a worrier, and with each new job I get it seems to get worse. I recently relocated back to my home town and after a few months off have found a job, and start in a few days. I seem to be fine at at the interview stage but as soon as I am offered the role and have to start I go into major panic mode and start worrying about everything and thinking that I won't be able to do the job. I think there is increased pressure with this job as we are looking to get a mortgage ASAP and I just feel so trapped. I have physical symptoms - bad stomach, racing heart, feel tearful, can't eat much as I feel so sick, and retching. I also woke up at 5am this morning with my mind racing. I'm forcing myself to eat small amounts and taking Kalms but they don't seem to do much. So far I seem to be worse in the morning. My boyfriend is very supportive but I have not told anyone else. I feel like I will never feel ok again at the moment. I am hoping it will feel better after the first few weeks. Does anyone have any advice or tips? I am considering CBT if it does not improve, but I want to stay away from medication. I usually exercise but as I have not been eating I have no energy to do this. Also we are currently living with my boyfriends parents and having to hide all this from them is exhausting! Help!
