Hey Randy,

Welcome my friend.  I agree with Meg as I have both anxiety and depression.  Sometimes I am not sure what comes first the anxiety or the depression.

Try not to over analyze the situation at work, stay in the moment and deal with things one step at a time. Remember to be assertive and not aggressive.   a

Assertiveness includes rational thinking and the self-affirmation of personal worth, respect, and rights. wink
I am so happy to hear you are going to therapy...............kudos to you.

Sometimes anxiety is caused by our own negative self-talk. It may be that your situation at work is taking your mood and self-confidence down, and combined with your day-to-day depression, the self-talk "what am I going to mess up next?" seeps its way into your subconscious and follows you home. Just a thought, but I sure hope you find some relief. This forum is a fantastic support, as I'm sure you know from the others you're in.

Oh I am the king of the "what am I going to screw up next thought", or "now what could go wrong" mayor!
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

I like to call that kind of thinking "catastrophising"...everytime my brain starts throwing up those questions I try and mentally roll my eyes and say "here she goes again!" and try and laugh at myself. IMHO it's one of the best way to deal with negative thoughts. You really just have to laugh sometimes!
