Anyone lost or quit their job because of SA?
I'm in a bad place at work. It's in a high stakes consultancy firm, and my boss is a la Glen C. in Devil Wears Prada.
Anyway, my anxiety has just gotten worse and worse, and I've made mistakes because of it, and because, hey I'm human and I'm trying to get a lot of work done for them. Well, I've decided to turn in my resignation on Wednesday because things are getting worse. I made a HUGE mistake today when I sent out an incorrect email, twice, to a group of potential networkers and clients. Oh boy, I actually felt nauseous when I realized my mistake! It was so juvenile, but I was using a new technology, and I was trying to rush through it to get to my other work.
Although I've been thinking about leaving for a loooong time now, I feel like **** about it, and I can't help but feel if I didn't have the SA things would have been a lot easier for me there. May be I'd still even be okay with working there.
Has anyone else found themselves quitting or being laid off because of SA related issues?
Just curious. I've got one job prospect lined up right now, and a little money in savings, but I'm terrified of trying to find a job in this economy if that other position doesn't work out. I listen to NPR obsessively and all the gloom and doom about the job market has just made my anxiousness even worse.
Can anyone relate?
