When is too much anxiety bad?
I’ve recently been having issues with my job which causes me to have anxiety attacks on Sunday (due to the fear of being unable to perform at work which has been highlighted several times by my boss).
It started small like my hand trembles slightly when my supervisor is watching me do whatever it is we need to do and it has since evolved into transient hyperventilation and severe trembling whenever I’m at work being supervised.
I’ve been told that I’m just being a strawberry and that being anxious to perform at my first job is normal so I’ve just kept it bottled in but I want to know (in your opinion) when the tipping point is where it is no longer a matter of nerves but damaging to me in the long run.
Also, I’ve been considering resignation (already told my boss my intentions and shes been pressuring me to leave ever since) because of this but since its my first job and everything, I’m trying to hold on to it as long as I can until I find a suitable job (if not, I’ll have to explain why I left to my next employer).
- For me, any health issue that is able to significantly impact your quality of life and performance, you should get it check it out.
Since you have stated it affected both mentally and physically, you have already have cross the tipping point.
- I’ve always had issue with excess sweating on my palms. I’m 29yo and am currently working in my first mnc and white collared job. In the past, if I’m sweaty I can brush it off as my job being physical etc.
For the first 2 months in my current job, my palms will sweat so bad such the table will be visibly wet when I lift my hands up. It was so bad that I had to hold a serviette in my hand in case anyone offered to shake my hand (I shake the hands of 2 poor guy and they must’ve noticed how sweaty my palms were fml).
I pitied the person who called you strawberry. They often must offend people without realizing. These are also the kind of people who’ve no idea why they can’t get into deep bonds with their friends or family.
- have super sweaty palms too and feet. My feet is the slip off my slippers kind of sweaty. If there’s a need to shake hands just wipe your hands on your shirt or pants before. Mine isn’t due to anxiety though just happens randomly.
