|I was wondering if anyone else is in the state of constant anxiety, not only at work, but at home too. How do you cope?|
Here are the several contributing factors in my case:
- feeling of incompetence at work
- sole provider for the family.
- lost the will to code (I try learning new things but give up after a few days).
- I’m 43 and have not accomplished anything, not even financial security for my family.
- too scared to change the job I hate (gambling industry, corporate JIRA sweatshop, for 13 years) because I’m incompetent.
- social anxiety.
- racing mind, incoherent thoughts.
Edit: so incompetent I don’t know how to create a bullet list here
