Cool Any Advice... - May 5th 2012, 11:05 AM

My anxiety have been running up for the past few months. To be honest I've been enduring my panic attacks for a year. After a year I really got myself medicated due to its severity and my panic attacks are accompanied by IBS. Now I've been diagnosed with OCD, GAD, SAD, IBS due to anxiety. The good thing is now I've been medicated. But the medication hinders my attention and thus my performance at school has greatly declined now I have failed 2 of my subjects but before my grades were above average. The medication is good but it only helps me relieve my anxiety and panic attacks not totally withdraw them.

My parents are very worried and has been very supportive in my condition.
they have given me some options to choose from namely

1. stop attending my studies for 1 term since my college university is tri-semestral and just stay home and rest. This is what my GP suggested. Rest and release all my stress and focus on my recovery. to be honest this is what I'd like to do. I've been constantly feeling edgy around school with a lot of activities.

2. continue studying even at my present condition with my mind floating due to the side effects of the drugs. This is the least option on my mind right now. I don't want to attend my school right now because of my medication.

3. stop school and find some work. I'm confident I could land a job as a call center agent but I'm a bit reluctant at my present condition as I am under medication. My parents suggested this. They said I should go out more and try to socialize since I'm always cooped up in my room and resting for 1 term (4 months) might not be able to cure my panic attacks. He said look for a job and enjoy myself.

I'm really confused on what to do. To be honest I prefer the first option but getting a job is not a bad idea too.

Why don't you take the term off, relax for some of it, and work for some of it? Or you could always find part-time or casual work - casual work may be better in your situation because there's no obligation, you get offered the hours and then you let the company know whether you can do them or not.

I think some work would probably beneficial, when you do nothing, it's easy to get bored, but it's also easy to become accustomed to doing nothing. Whereas if you work a bit and socialise a bit, then you remain used to doing stuff but without the pressure of study, meaning when you go back to study hopefully you'll be more prepared for it. That's just what I think.

I'm afraid casual work is not available at my place.
But, thanks for the idea I was thinking off taking a break and start working when I feel
like it. Well, since my parents told me to work not for the money but to enjoy myself I'll take a few weeks of break before formally apply for work.. I still haven't enjoyed my vacation yet.

No harm in enjoying a vacation and if you're not working for the financial gain, why not try volunteering somewhere in your area of interest or expertise? As well as being fun, it will look really good on your CV/resume later on.
