Anxiety threatening job 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
I work as a hairdresser, which is pretty demanding physically and mentally. I really love doing hair and I think it's helped me alot in some ways with my anxiety by forcing me to learn to talk to people confidently; however, the down side is when something doesn't go right and I start getting panicky then I'm more prone to making more mistakes in that state. Well my boss is freaking out on me lately and I understand why. I've told her I'm seeing a therapist and trying really hard to get a handle on my anxiety. I'm trying to get into a primary care physician so I can look into getting on meds but it's hard to get an appointment quickly. Many are booked out for months. My coworkers have been wonderful and supportive, but I'm still in danger of getting canned. This just makes me even more depressed. I can't just find another salon to work at in my area. I have a non-compete agreement (common in the industry)and I would have to go work about a hour commute away due to the agreement. I've contemplated giving up a career that I love to find a "regular job" or go back to school to do something completely different. I know I would just be sick if I had to go work a desk job. I would be humiliating to fail that bad at something I loved. Has anyone else had their job threatened as a result of anxiety? Not that they wanted to quit, but that they would be fired?

Re:Anxiety threatening job 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Hi, I can relate totally to your worries...I have a good secure job but am SO panicked lately that I am going to lose it...sometimes the worry is justified, as I have struggled badly this year with depression, and am in a customer service position in which having a bad day is not an option.
My anxiety at work never seems to quit, especially now as we have been asked to do a "non negotiable" task that I do not believe in and which I never do at home due to the anxiety it causes - something as simple as phoning people!
Add to that in my brain fog this year I have made mistakes and was subsequently put on performance management - humiliating, as someone who had always had promotions and even owned my own business!
BUT I keep in mind, and so should you...I quit a job a few years ago as I was emotionally struggling and finding the job stressful, and was in fear of being a "disappointment" to my bosses, a failure at the job, and just plain not good enough at it - I was scared they would just let me go...
It wasn't until I handed in my notice that they told me how sad they were, that they had been HAPPY with my performance - it was only my anxiety telling me I was not good enough.
SO...TRY not to panic - even though your boss may have to give you some performance counselling, it may not be as bad as it seems...unless you are turning up drunk, stealing, abusing customers, or totally inept at your job (Which I highly doubt, as you love what you do) most employers have no grounds to ask you to leave
Take a deep breath before everything you do - try to relax, think about one thing at a time at work - you'll be fine!
