Anxiety about work
I moved back home just before lockdown as my uni and work has shut. Before lockdown I really struggled to go into work I would have panic attacks that would make me physically sick before my shift and would feel so nervous if I went into work. After being furloughed for a couple of months we’ve received an email today saying that on the 13th June I need to go back to work. This means moving back to uni where I will be away from my family and living by myself. I’m so terrified, I haven’t really been around people since before lockdown and moving back means I’ll have to go and do my own shopping as well as obviously going back to work (in retail) where I will be around people. The company I work for has assured us of all the safety measures Theyre taking and I am slightly reassured by it as it seems to be well thought out. However I’m still so scared that I’ll end up having panic attacks again and I don’t want to be an inconvenience to anyone particularly at this time when everyone else is so stressed about Covid. Even now when I think about my chest gets so tight and I feel so nervous even though we still have a week and a bit to go. I’ve already tried to request a transfer back home but unfortunately they said at the minute they’re not allowing anyone to transfer, which I understand.
Thank you for reading my rant lol I just need some advice really on how to cope with this as I feel like I can’t really talk to my family about it.
Today is a great day for a great day.
