“i've always struggled with anxiety around authority or higher figures than myself. whenever i'm at work & on shift with my manager i get this bad anxiety cause i feel i have to perform perfectly or i'll get in trouble since this persons in charge of my employment. my anxiety gets so bad i feel i may cry or throw up just at the thought of working with my manager. it also makes no sense as my manager is actually nice & isn't usually that strict when on shift but i can't stop the anxiety around it.”
