“It's finally happened. For more than a year, I have been suffering with GAD and panic disorder. I've also had other health issues that's only made it worse. My job has been really understanding: They let me take 2 months off and have been very lenient with my performance. But we're heading into a big project now, and my manager told me other day that I need to step it up or we won't make our deadlines. But I'm already doing the best I can! Anxiety is ruining my life. I might get fired.”
