I wish I could go to work and not feel anxious...grrr...my feelings of anxiety are all related to the feeling of not being able to cope - even though I know I can (and do so) do this job and do it well!
My job has changed over the past few months and become more physical (I work in horticulture) - which is really good for me, coz I am kinda cuddly in all the wrong places lol..which leads me to paranoia about having a heart attack..which leads me to having chest pains - which are all anxiety related..having had all the tests etc. to prove it!
It's like I am having to constantly reassure myself that everything is ok..which is annoying and frustrating to say the least!
Anyone else have this prob?

We ALL have this problem - I just finished posting here about another health related anxiety I have and the heart attack one is VERY common to all of us too.  And I have the same anxiety about work too - I KNOW I can do the job but I'm always afraid my anxiety will get the best of me and everyone will find out I can't cope.  All you can do is keep doing what you're doing and constantly reassuring yourself, "I can", " I can" and "you will."  It seems that so many of us anxiety sufferers are pretty intelligent people but our emotions just get the best of us..  The thing is that even though we feel so awful inside, most other people don't notice.  I had had anxiety for over l0 years and when I finally told some close friends I worked with, they couldn't believe it - they said they thought I really had it all together - when all the time I felt like I was falling apart inside and that EVERYONE could notice.  Keep pushing ahead my dear, you'll get through it and there will be times when you actually feel okay...hopefully the "feel good" times will eventually overcome the bad.  Good luck.

I feel what you are going thru. Mine is worse on some days then other my meds seem to help a lot but of course there a mind thing too. I haven't been able to work due to other health issues but the anxiety is always there no matter what I try to do or how happy I'm feeling. Hope your doing better soon.

Thanx for your replies tongue nice to know I am not alone with this..

(((HUGS))) to you all

I was watching something on tele the other day...I think this really made me 'overthink' and they asked this lady who was way over weight 'what she was getting out of being soo big?' she replied she didn't know..and they said 'well you must be getting something out of this or you would do something about it!' For some reason this has stuck in my head...and it hasn't had a positive effect.. eyes in fact it made me feel 'blah'...however that's life eh..just have to let it go and get on with my life eh?
