It is so frustrating when you worry all the time about how you may feel and constantly worry how you may look in front of others. Panicking about whether you cope, will someone criticise you. It takes so much time to do a job because you constantly check it’s done properly and you are never sure.
It’s draining when you feel tense all the time, you can’t face that job, test, person or situation and you are really not sure how you will control your reactions. Will you will cry, hideaway or worse still a full on panic attack kicks in?
It’s hard if you feel like many opportunities are not being taken because you are scared, or convinced you will fail anyway. So many things you would like to do, even simple things and you know you are missing out.
If this sounds familiar, then you are not alone!
