Anxious about returning to work

I will be returning to work very soon. I've been off due to car accident a few months ago. I am for one extremely nervous about driving. The thing that bothers me most is not being able to do my work due to pain and anxiety. My job causes pain anyway and I'm afraid it will be way worse on my neck and back since the accident and being very inactive. I need to work. I hate having to force myself. I cry every day after work and sometimes during. I never know what day I will have energy and what day I will be totally full of panic and pain. All I know is I have to work I have no choice but am terrified to go back.

I'm also freaking out because my stomach is acting up. Can't get in to see a dr until I'm back at work. Everything keeps playing in my head at night. I cry and shake and wake up in the morning feeling extremely anxious. Doesn't seem to matter what I eat anymore. I thought I figured that out but no matter what my tummy bloats and hurts. I don't want to feel like this anymore. 😥
