> I am on 1.0 Xanax a day because that's how bad my anxiety (99% social) got over the past couple of years. At the same time (on a healthier note) I joined a gymn this week and did a complete upper body workout & some Stairmaster last night. I am hoping that after 6 weeks of daily exercise I will get some of the old confidence back. I'm in the opposite situation as you -- going into 4th year at same job, and being denied any raise the entire time. So I get this panic feeling especially on Sunday nights, "Oh God, I have to face all of those jerks again, another week of degradation and humiliation."
***yes, I was joking about the vodka. :) That's great that you've started exercising. It does help...the hard part for me is being consistent with it. My previous job I felt the same. I hated going into work..wait, how is that different from my new one...lol It's hard when the people/environment at work is bad. There's no reason for people to be that way but they do and that's just sad. I think of it this way. Alot of times people treat others badly because they don't want put attention on themselves...their problems, their insecurities. So, when you think about it...you are more confident because you don't have to do that. But yeah, it still does affect your day.
