Yes, Many people feel constant anxiety at the workplace. Just read some powerful executives biographies and even they will admit to feeling sick while driving to work in the morning. This ususally happens from tension and an unfriendly, competitive environment. Do not waste time if you work in an environment such as this, and find something else immediately. The trick, however, is to not get yourself in debt which forces you to remain at a job longer than you wish.
Some states have work bullying laws. Unfortunately, Fla. does not, but retirement fortunately did help. You need to weigh the pros & cons of your job. Every job becomes just that-a job. If you are able to find some position you are happy with, do so, if financially you can!
i think the first thing to do is ask the question,"Why,am i anxious?" What or who could be causing this? If you cannot answer the questions by yourself or with feedback from friends then i would suggest a shrink.
Yes, i to have a lot of anxiety from work, bad hours, unfriendly co-workers, bosses that dont know how to run the place, and lead men who don't have any people skills at all. My job keeps getting worse every year with rules and regulations. Dont get stuck like me, its hard for me to find a new job that pays as much as i'm making now. I hate it and all the deceitful people. Anyway my doctor has prescribed xanax and i have been taking low doses 4 times a day for 8 years now. Its the only way i can make it through the day without panic or anxiety attacks. Not many meds are good for you and this is one of them, someday i wish to be in a new job and able to get rid of them.. they are good to help u temporarily, just dont get addicted. Hope is good to, i play the lottery twice a week for 20 years and nothing yet, but the little bit of hope does help.. good luck !!!!!!!!!!

I understand what you are going through. About two years ago, I quit a job after having pretty regular panic attacks at work. It wasn't due to people being mean, or my boss being a jerk. It just got to the point that before I would go to bed, all I could think about was how much I didn't want to go in the next day. I couldn't even enjoy my weekends because I was constantly thinking about work. After I left, I ended up getting another position doing something I totally love. (Still occasionally have anxiety with it as well.) However, it isn't constant, and I don't mind getting up anymore.
However a new job, does not nesicarily mean no anxiety, in fact it can cause just as much because you are having to go through the learning process again. If it is something that is ongoing, I would really encourage you to talk to your Dr. about it. You could be suffering from anxiety brought on by depression. (To be honest, just say F*#&! it. If you don't like your job, then you don't have to worry about losing it. And a lot of times, that is where the stress comes from.)
