I'm new here. I was finally given a shot at work, I managed 2 weeks, five days and now I'm burnt out and feeling our rubbish mentally and physically. I feel like a failure.
The annoying thing is I really enjoyed working but the effects it has caused is almost unbearable. My anxiety is awful. My mental health is triggered and I'm struggling to sleep again and feel tired all the time.
My boss has asked me a few times when I'll be back and I don't know when or if I will. My gut tells me I'm not going to go back again... My anxiety can't take it.
The first few weeks of any job is awful, for everyone. You feel like such a clueless outsider. But once you get used to the routine and things become familiar it gets better. If not, then yes, leave. But…
Thanks. I give up too easily at every hurdle, it's a habit I've got in to and I need to stop letting anxiety rule my life and ruin everything for me. The days I worked were successful, but then I was wrecked…
I have taken some time to think about a response to your post.
Personally, work has always been the most difficult thing for me and the thing I struggle with the most. I have had over 40 jobs in my life…
a thing i learned is to force myself to stay despite the urge to quit. i always have that urge to quit anything quite alot. but i develop and get good things if i beat that urge and stay. i found that by forcing myself to stay in martial arts despite the murderous insane fitness that even after years of it still made me groggy and almost pass out at each lesson. but staying despite wanting to quit always has been good for me and key to advancing in anything.if you can beat the initial quit wave it eventually passes and normalises your position. it does help you like the work, with me at my work i hated alot of the work as it was too much and the bosses were douches, so i had this urge to quit ongoing, constantly having to beat it back. i guess life is a fight against yourself, you beat yourself and this urge to quit and live constantly at that point and you can get through anything.
