Thought of going to work creates anxiety

Postby Hopeshines22 » Sun Aug 09, 2015 7:53 pm

I am otherwise ok with going outside, although, would love to stay indoors as much as i can, i have a certain weird sense of anxiety when it comes to going to work.

I have had this butterflies in stomach feeling when in school also. The thought of going to school made me cringe. But i couldn't avoid it somehow. I only loved exams. Because i was prepared well in advance and maybe because there were less interactions. I am an introvert.

After college, i haven't worked much. Since 6 or 7 years, i have been mostly home telling people that i am studying. But the real reason is that i am afraid to go to work. I tried. But i quit after 2 or 3 months. The anxiety build up is extreme. I do not know how to handle. I hate getting up early and then having no time for myself. I need a lot of time for myself. When i don't get any, i feel deepressed.

Also, a lot of interactions also make me feel drained. So i avoid talking much to people. But then i also feel bad when i don't feel the sense that I belong. Why does this happen.? I feel dejected that everyone ignores me and start taking to each other. I feel invisible. I feel as if i am boring. Also, i can't stand bossy and fake people. What i don't understand is that if i don't want to interact with people, why should i feel bad when they make plans without me? Why?

I want to be able to make a great career one day soon and i want to get our of my comfort zone. If anyone had suffered something like this, please enlighten as to how to avoid the feeling of anxiety of going to work. I don't want to take medications.

It's the only reason i joined this site . With a hope that i might get an answer to my issues.

Thank you.
