I'm nearing the end of my rope.
I am incredibly stressed. There are things happening at my workplace that I'm not able to talk about, but really wish I could. It's eating me alive! Suffocating me.
I'm very tempted to take short term disability to remove myself from the situation because I'm not coping very well and have been ignoring my needs and self care and allowing myself to be consumed by the situation.
I've been having anxiety/panic attacks lately. My heart races, I can't breathe, I feel dizzy, my arms tingle.
I think it's a combination of the stress at work and the stress of my life. Actually I know it's a combination of it all.
Does anyone have any techniques they use to handle stress or anxiety attacks that actually work?
