I'm a newbie here. male in my late 30's
in theory everything should be going well but I started a new career just before covid hit and now working from home with a new team and less support - my anxiety cranked up and I am having really bad panic attacks about work (whole body shakes, poor sleep, no appetite).
Feeling guilty because my 6yo is at home so I am trying to help with his home schooling but my anxiety is making me feel useless (and a burden to my wife - who has been amazing, but now I think it's starting to get to her).
I am starting to feel some negative thoughts about my self worth (and a whole impostor syndrome kicking in about being found out and losing the job, and all my self worth).
Sorry about the ramble, but it feels right to just say it. I am taking a mild antidepressant but I don't think it's working and I've booked to see a psychiatrist as well. Feeling quite scared about how quickly this is escalating.
If anyone has any tips on how to cope, I'd love to hear. Thanks for the support
