30th May 18′ – Struggling with Anxiety and Work


Feeling – anxious

I’ve just got into work and I already feel like this is going to be another day of procrastination. It makes me feel lazy, like I’m ‘ripping off’ my boss. But I just can’t bring myself to actually work. I just try to cling on to the end of the day and let the anxiety run its course until it subsides.

I’ve managed to keep my mental illness secret from the workplace but days like this I really struggle and I struggle in silence.

    1. Hi Lee,

      Apologies for the delay in reply your comment went into spam for some strange reason!

      They certainly are – I find it a bit tricky because whilst I know my mental health is more important than my job, I feel that if I leave/lost said job then my mental health would suffer even more. Bit of a catch 22!


  1. I feel ya. I caved in today and came home early. The nightmares are back, I slept like shit, and that plus anxiety was just too much. Hope your anxiety goes away soon.

  2. Have had similar problems for many years but things much better now. In my experience (for now) best to keep things to yourself. But if it escalates you may be surprised that work can be supportive. As I don’t know your job can’t really call that one. Fully relate to anxiety impacting on these things. Reading between the lines it seems you have respect for your boss, in which case, they provably have respect for you. (John)
