Loneliness

I am busy during the day. I go out and play cards at the Senior Center. I attend church on Sunday.
I work during the day.
I hate coming home afterwards because my anxiety kicks into high gear
I see the dirty dishes and I hurry and get them done. I get panicy
and get mad at myself for leaving a mess.
I do not do many things to take care of myself. The reason is I am not financially able to get my hair done or get a pedicure
This is a strange time in my life. I am 64 years old . I do work because that is all I have ever known. Retirement is not a possibility however I opted to receive my social security benefits at the age of 62.

Workaholic

#Workaholic #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder

So I've recently gotten to the point where I'm able to admit to myself that I am a workaholic and I really need to stop overworking myself. The past two sessions I've had with my therapist have been pretty heavy and I'm starting to realize why I'm working so much and what is making me seek approval through working. I am very hard on myself and if I don't think I'm working hard enough the negative self talk is working overtime. I'm not really sure why I decided to post about this but I don't really have anyone that I can talk to about it other than my therapist.

Working too much

Does anyone else use work as a distraction? Then you work so much, you reach burn out, and then some how you keep going still. This isn't healthy, but it keeps one from thinking about the unhappy stuff you cannot change.#Workaholic

#DistractMe #Workaholic

Is that bad thst I preferred to work than be at home? It does help me mind off from things. My roommate asked me if I have time off so she doesn’t have to be alone for 4th of July. But I’d prefer to work over whatever. When my kids comes I’ll take time off to be with my kids. Other than that I’d prefer to work.

Self Date

I’m in a relationship that’s been kind of rocky recently. My last breakup was about 3 years ago, and when I was healing from the heartbreak I taught myself to enjoy alone time. Now that I’m severely #depressed and #anxious I don’t do much alone besides feel lonely, sad and try to sleep my days away. My current boyfriend is a #Workaholic and it’s really hard for me, especially now when I need more support. We have a lot of similarities, except I love film, cinematography/movies and he’s not much into movies; he likes documentaries which is fine, but I’ve been wanting to see a movie in the theatre for a while now. Tonight I bought one ticket.... I figured, I’m depressed and I need to get out of the house. I just got a little extra money so I am going to the movies alone. This actually makes me happy because even though I want my BF to keep me company, I know he wouldn’t enjoy the movie like I would. So, for the first time in a long time.... I’m happy to be going out alone. If you feel #lonely too, maybe take yourself out or order some food and stay in 😊

How do you cope with workaholism, overwhelm and perfectionism? How could someone else most help you with these issues?

I’m a reformed workaholic who nearly burnt out. Now I’m keen to use my coaching to help others with the same thing. I want to get a deeper understanding of how people struggling with workaholism and overwhelm cope and what they need help with. #Workaholic #Overwhelm #perfectionism #Work #Burnout #Anxiety

How to cope with work-related anxiety during vacation

I have very severe anxiety that has become worse with time; this happens when I travel for holidays / am away from the office. I feel like I’m missing out on important emails and deadlines. The anxiety gets so bad that I spend entire days worrying until I’m back in the office catching up on work. I need help to learn how to try to deal with this, because this condition is preventing me from enjoying what’s supposed to be my relaxing down time. Please help.

#Work #ChronicIllness #Fatigue #Undiagnosed

They fired my coworker this past Monday. Technically there are two people in my department, now I’m the only one. Last week I worked 62 hours and my only saving grace over the next two is we’re closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Working can be hard enough with a chronic condition but now I’m just tired. This is what happens when they know they can count on you, you become their go to. And I love it. I really do, I just wish that I could have some more time for me. #Work #Workaholic
