Today, my anxiety has gotten so bad that I start to panic every time someone even approaches me. I'm a cashier, and I'm only halfway through my shift. FML

  • I think it's time to seek medical help. If you are panicking from people approaching you, you might want to see about getting an anti-anxiety medicine on board.

  • To clarify, I have been suffering from anxiety ever since I was a child. I used to not speak to people at all. I got this job as an attempt to break free of my anxiety.

    For the first nine months or so, it worked. I was much happier and could actually initiate conversations with people I didn't even know.

    Last year my grandfather was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and in December my mother nearly died. Since then my anxiety has been spiralling out of control.

    I realize that I should talk to someone and start on medication again, but I can't afford it, as I only make slightly more than minimum wage. I'm sure my family would help me, but I don't wish to bother them.
