    So, i accepted a new job and this is the cause of my anxiety and feelings of helplessness.

    the new job is 50 miles away from my wife and child, and while its only an hour away i feel like its 10,000,000 miles. I guess the anxiety comes with any new job. this one pays me much more than my current, but my current job is going away. So I must take a new one

    anyway, maybe you all can help with this. i dunno

    symptoms.

    -loss of appetite
    -some sleeplessness
    -can't think of anything else but this new job and what could go wrong.
    -feel like crying when hearing about bad news (hence watching the news is excruciating)
    -trembling from fear
    -nerves almost feel like a burning sensation in arms/hands (rare, but it did happen)
    -feelings of being useless
    -one time i couldn't stop moving. HAD to walk around.
    -don't feel like lifting weights anymore
    -my drive to succeed has evaporated. but it comes back sometimes like "i can do this shit, easy" but its mostly gone.

    so, what do you think i'm suffering from?

    whenever i start a new job i get paranoid about everything. what you are describing sounds normal to me, except for the crying when hearing bad news thing.
    i think about every possible thing that can go wrong/that i can fuck up and get all restless/cant sleep

    yeah, i guess its normal to have these feelings, but they're bad. I've NEVER had it this bad, where i think i need to go to the doctors. its fucking CONSTANT state of stress

    This does sound like depression, I would visit your doctor, sometimes it is difficult to think your way out of how you are feeling.

    if you get put on the right thing you shouldnt have side effects. it can take a while to find out what works for you though

    Major anxiety, not just a little. I only got that burning nerves thing when I was on the verge of collapse!

    See a doctor but deep breaths with closed eyes will help to stop it from paralysing you before you get there.

    Try to think of the positive aspects of your new job more often rather than focus on those causing you stress.

    I'm actually having quite a bit of trouble with it at the moment myself, at least you know the reason :hs:

    Life changes, we change. Sometimes it's really scary, sometimes we just fall apart. There's nothing abnormal about the way you're reacting.

    thanks for the help.

    going to my fam dr. at 3 today. positive effects? damn good money. thats about it.

    oh yeah, and my current job wants me to go to a different job that is 75 miles away. impossible, unless i move and that would mean wife would have to move, new daycare for my boy...

    its just too much to handle.
