Q: AnxiousAnne writes: Because of anxiety I can’t stay at a job for more than a few months. What can I do?
A: Many people with anxiety have a difficult time at work because their fear and feelings of anxiety interfere with their ability to do their job or interact with their peers. Anxiety can also be caused by the uncertainty of your job, worry about making a mistake and the lack of control you have on your situation. But having anxiety doesn’t mean you will never be able to hold down a job. There are many treatments available for anxiety, such as medication or cognitive behavioral therapy, that can help you through the excessive worry or panic attacks. If you haven’t done so yet, talk with your doctor about your anxiety and find out more about what treatments would be best for you.
