I posted here several years ago (on the work and employment side, I think)about waking up every day nervous about work. Waking up hours before my alarmwith my heart racing. Getting out of the shower with the gagging/dry heavinguntil I get into my car and into the parking lot. I have been in counseling, onmeds, but nothing has helped!
Last week I was hit while out to lunch. I am fine, my car not so much. I'venoticed, since the accident, I haven't worried so much about work! Like, amongeverything else in my life, work was "normal" and nothing to beworried about or feared! On the radar, the "work anxiety" is so smallcompared to other things in life (like a car accident). For 3 years, I guess Ihave been "lucky" enough not to have any life-changing issues such asa car accident. I am curious to see, once I get my car back and my the billpaid, if my work anxiety will come back. Has this happened to you? Have I founda way to cope.

never happened to me, but maybe your work anxiety decreased when you survived the crash and realized that life is so precious it's a waste to spend time worrying...sometimes it takes a close call before we appreciate what a good life we have...and it ain't so bad being alive. Glad you're OK, the anxiety won't come back unless you allow it to...and what for? it never helped you before did it?
