for posting, and telling us about what has been going on for you. I'm sorry to
hear that your anxiety has gotten worse and that you're going through a a difficult time, especially when you are at work.
to follow on from jess334's post, and let you know anxiety is part of what
makes us human, it is a normal feeling. But sometimes it can get overwhelming,
and we experience anxiety when we shouldn’t! Feeling your heart rate increase
over little stressors, feeling tongue-tied and having a blank mind can all be
part of anxiety. But in saying that, it is normal to feel a little nervous when
talking in front of a group of people, I was wondering if you have been able to
talk in front of your team without nerves and mental blocks before?
this because there are ways that we can manage our anxiety. I'm very glad to
hear that you are looking to get professional support because those
professionals will be able to help you learn how to manage your anxiety. So
well done, it's not an easy task to reach out for help! In relation to telling
your manager, that is a topic that may be worth discussing with your mental
health professional, because they will have an in-depth sense of who you are as a person, and help you make the decision about telling your manager. I know you
have avoided this so far, but it talking it out can help you feel comfort in
you will write back and let us know if you have reached out for professional
help, as jess334 said, these forums are a great place to voice your feelings
and know that you're not alone in your battle with anxiety.
