Hey there Lorisanxious, and welcome to healingwell...I know what you are feeling now, as I lost my job in April due to anxiety. What meds are you on that you can't drive...if you don't mind me asking? Whenever you feel comfortable, post more about yourself, and people here will help you as much as possible.

Hi Lori,

I also take meds that at first made me so drowsy I would half the day away. It does get better. In time your body will be able to adjust. If it helps any, when/if you take meds at night, go to bed and let the meds help you relax and get a good night's sleep. This works for me a lot but everyone is different. It's not much but I hope it helps.

Why have people lost their jobs, if this is not too personal a question? Wouldn't an anxiety disorder be a disability that would protect people from losing their jobs over?

You would think so pf....but well, my boss put up with my anxiety issues for about 2 months, and then said enough is enough. I admit, I wasn't nearly close to my full potential, and I was missing time and stuff. I guess it depends on how much your boss is willing to handle, or is able to tolerate. I coulodn't do my job, he had no choice but to let me go...maybe if I were in his position, I would have done the same...who knows? I have never felt angry at him for letting me go, eventhough it did ruin my life, in a way. It took away income we as a family depended on and were use to having.

THis disease stinks!!!
