“This week I have my first day of work ever. It's a basic job at a supermarket, but it still makes me incredibly anxious since it is somthing new. My anxiety goes completely insane when I do new things and I have felt anxious the last three days, while I haven't even started working. My main issue is the feeling that I can't leave, without permission, which makes me feel very trapped. I'm scared it'll cause me to have a major panic attack.”
