It does sound like your work situation is causing you enormous anxiety. I have contemplated switching jobs too, but I am afraid to do so when things are so unstable for me in my life and in therapy. I'm afraid I won't make a wise decision in this condition. I also in more rational moments realize that I need to confront these work problems because every job is going to have them and switching for me seems like running away from them. My father used to say, "The devil you know is better than the devil you don't know." Basically, looking for a new job and adjusting to it will be it's own form of intense anxiety. So, it becomes a choice between the current anxiety, which sounds just awful for you, and the unknown.

Then again, if the people you are around have toxic effects on you, you may want weigh whether it is worth getting out.

Like I said recently in Daisy's post about loneliness, if we became physically ill, most of us would have coworkers who would rally around us and help us out and understand until we were healed. But with our troubles, we have to hide it or run the risk of being dismissed, ridiculed, etc.

I'm so sorry this is happening to you.
