Yes. I can not hold a job because of anxiety. When I get really anxious the whole "fight or flight" mode kicks in and I usually end up choosing "flight". And at a job that does not go over too well. It's a running joke in my family that I have had so many jobs and usually only last a few weeks or months. Working from home seems like the only real possibility for me to hold an actual job right now. That's an area I need to do more looking into. But, yes, anxiety has been a major road block in me getting and holding a job.
Yes. I infact applied for a job. Application was an online one. So I got through, manage the interview then got the job. Only thing is, my anxiety rose and I freaked out I couldn't go through with it.

I lost my job about 15 years ago I was a youth leader at the local youth club, got on great with the teenagers, then I was told I had to go on a training weekend at a hotel in Manchester, I totally freaked out, couldn't go, so they wouldn't let me carry on, never been able to work since then, and now I've got Dystonia it makes work impossible.
