I find myself to be most anxious when i am alone and at home by myself and have to much time on my hands to think. As soon as I am working or even just busy with day to day activities I am much less anxious.

Yep, I am the exact same way. At work, even if I start to let my mind wander to my anxiety problems, I soon become distracted and too busy to let myself dwell on it. I am at my work (mentally) when I'm alone and thinking too much. What do you think this is telling us..? Over-thinking and over-analyzing is NOT a good thing and it really IS in our heads.

Awesome thanks for the replies, makes me think its not healthy to spend too much time alone and have a idle mind lol.....I know I'm a worrier no matter what and I need distractions. I just cannot be at home all the time like I am now.

I work as a paramedic.... So days are good others are just so heavy with thoughts, but in the end I win... I don't know what I'd do with out work, I feel i need that interaction and challenge each day. I'm also heading back to school.

I have a pretty physical job, so when work is busy....the anxiety is gone...surprise surprise. :happy0151: Lately, work has been a little slow so I have more time on my hands and guess what...my anxiety is out of control! On the weekends, I try to stay busy around the house or with my son and wife.

What's that saying about idle minds ......

I'm self-employed - have been for a long, long time.  I work with my husband, although what work I have comes from him, so it's not always full-time.  Down time to me generally means anxiety ramps up.  I know the drill, so when there is down time in work, I find other ways to occupy myself, physically and mentally.  Makes a HUGE difference.

See mine is the complete opposite, at home I'm not to bad but at work or out in general mine is worse, I do get it at home but its always been worse when im at work outside my comfort zone, it gets worse if I'm a certain distance from home.

I'm a telecommuter which has done WONDERS for helping me take control of my anxiety.  However... now that I've been doing this a few years - I'm finding myself thinking, "if something happens when I'm alone working.... would anyone know?"    And of course that brings on anxiety with every little twitch of pain or weird sensation...
But I'm handling it and battling it back!  I know being in the office would be MUCH worse on my anxiety.

Work is one of the reasons for my anxiety.

I am currently working and anxiety sometimes gets in the way.

Has anyone had to stop work because your illness has affected you greatly?  How did you come to that conclusion?

I ask because I have a stressful job where my decisions and actions has the possibility to injury people.  I'm worried that one day I'll have a panic attack and won't be able to make the right decision at an important time or I might completely snap and do something in a frustrated state that hurts me and/or others around me.

I am not able to work at the moment because of my anxiety. I am on disability. I haven't worked in years; at first it was because of my anorexia but when that got better, the anxiety was still there. I have social anxiety specifically around anything job-related. I go to school but I don't talk to anyone. I would like to work again; I'm working on it in therapy.
