managing

  • Do you have a high profile job. How are you managing day to day?

    I have a highly visible job. I am emotionally exhausted by the end of each day. My anxiety before a major deadline can be crippling, but I push through and burn out at the end of the week or month. I present a good front at work most of time, but it eats me up inside and I curl up when I get home and want nothing to do with the outside world. I've taken some steps, some I've been doing for years, others I just started and all of it helps. I know this is a lifelong personal journey and I'm not looking for a quick fixes. I'm curious how others have managed a position where they have to be "on" all / most of the time. Did you eventually change jobs? What do you think about while I work? How do you manage anxiety at work? Have you noticed how it shows up in your work, if it does? (mine shows up as perfectionism and OCD like rereading email I send several times)
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • Looking for new friends..

    I'm in Canada, would like to have some new friends in the area. Anyone else from here? I'm going insane without any friends and I feel extremely isolated..
  • Tongue Picking Problem

    I'm not sure if I have anxiety or ocd but am very skeptical that I do. I have an odd problem with picking/pulling off taste buds. Ive had this problem for as long as I can remember, i get so into it I dont even notice when I do it until my tongue is missing chunks and my fingers are bloody. Its so disgusting, unsanitary, painful, and just weird. I dont know whats wrong with me and i dont know how to stop.
