Not very well, lol. When I was working retail I basically got no sleep, felt nauseated every morning (so couldn't eat before work), was insanely stressed while I was at work, and thought for sure I was going to have a heart attack most days. I did that for 13 years and my anxiety was just as bad at the end of it as it was at the start. I wanted to quit every day but I didn't, because being homeless seemed like it would probably be worse. After I lost that job, my anxiety got even worse. To the point where I couldn't even go to the coffee shop and order a coffee.

Welcome to the forum.

It's tough, doesn't matter how long I've been in the workforce - everyday is a struggle. I think just taking things a day at a time and have a way to unwind outside of it helps.

I only just work enough to survive. I dont have to talk to anyone, I just pack mail. its still a bit uncomfortable being around colleagues. but its usually 3 or 4 hours and I'm out of there.
