I'm new here and want to say hi. Also, I wanted to get your advice on something. About one week ago I started getting anxiety about going to work. It happened after getting pulled into a meeting with 2 of my superiors, having a one-on-one meeting with my manager, and a follow up meeting with both. After those meetings I started to feel my manager wanted me gone.
The anxiety started to come in the morning right before work. I would get anxiety in my stomach and breath heavy to the point of light headedness and dizziness.
I've never had this happen to me in my life. I've been working steady for 5+ years and have never had this type of problem. It started because I felt as if my manager wanted me to leave the company. Since he has more power than me I felt anxiety. It's 4 days and I haven't had the ability to go to work. The weird thing is my company is known for its outstanding culture and has won a lot of awards for it.
I even had to go to the emergency room because I fell over after breathing too heavy and fast. Every time I think about going to work I get anxiety and my mind starts to panic. I have no idea if I'll be able to go back. I feel really helpless. I would love to hear what anyone has to say. Thank you in advance.
