3 months of work, and still nervous? - August 14th 2009, 04:54 AM

I've been working at this bagel shop for about three months now. It's not a hard job, really. At first it was hard to learn all of the different sandwiches and where everything was, but I'm fine with that now. Where I'm not fine, though, is the social aspect.

It takes me a long time to warm up to people, but it's getting easier and easier to be myself around these guys.

What I don't quite understand is why I get so nervous the night before I have a shift. I don't mean just the butterflies. My anxiety peaks to the point at which my heart is racing and I barely sleep at all.

Oh, and when I do sleep, I dream of work. I get so nervous that I have bad dreams about this place.

what the heck? any ideas on why this happens?

Might be some sort of panic attack? idk.

Seems like you panic and think about work to much, every time you get worried, try saying to yourself ''it's ok. im fine''/ 'iv'e worked there for months now, its chill''.
Sounds silly, but somewere along the line, your'e mind got used to atoumaticly freaking out about work, so just try and reverse it.
Well done on working through your problems and staying there though.
I mean, three months ago, it might have seemed impossible.

Having sleepless nights isn't good, try finding out more about panic attacks?
could help

Oh I had this when I was a waitress, I could barely take orders from customers or give them what they ordered. I tried to avoid it as much as I could by clearing up rather than anything else. There's nothing that I can think of that'll fix you in an instant, you've been doing this for awhile and you said that it's getting a little easier so maybe keep powering through or talk to a professional? If it's getting to hard, look for a job that has less interaction with people...?
