Anxiety Help

Is Your Anxiety A Result Of Redundancy?

At some point in your life, you will feel anxious. Whether it’s because you are going on a first date with someone, starting a new job, moving house or taking an exam. These are very good causes of anxiety and most people recognise this is a normal part of their experience.

Redundancy, however, can lead to many people experiencing higher levels of anxiety than they have ever felt before.

Anxiety symptoms:

  • Feel nervous and anxious
  • Find it hard to relax
  • Regularly in flight or flight mode
  • Find it hard to sit still
  • Constantly on the go
  • Worry about the future, past and present
  • Fear something bad is going to happen
  • Frightened by the lack of uncertainty in your life
  • Feel insecure
  • Worry about the
  • Lack of stability in your life
  • Little problems seem huge
  • Experience intense emotion
  • Feeling or being sick
  • Feel no one understands your plight
  • Stomach pain
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Panic attacks
  • Loss of appetite
  • Overeating
  • Difficulty in sleeping
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Lack of concentration
  • Depressed
  • Stressed
  • Feel agitated
  • On edge
  • Fidgety
  • Afraid of change
  • Scared of the unknown
  • Avoid public transport
  • Avoid social situations
  • Feel safer in familiar surroundings
  • Worry what people think and feel
  • May seem defensive but really want help
  • Feel lonely even in company
  • Feel you are not normal
  • Feel you are not in the real world
  • Feel something is wrong with you
  • Feel an intensity
  • Feel you are about to explode

If you find you have experienced more of these symptoms since being made redundant, then it is likely your redundancy has triggered these reactions through cause and effect.

If you experienced almost all of these symptoms on a regular basis before you were made redundant, it is possible:

  • You have experienced trauma in your life that is still affecting you either consciously or subconsciously.
  • Your lifestyle encourages these symptoms
  • Your work instigated them
  • Your personal situation fuels them
  • You may have an anxiety disorder

In which case you are not alone.

Treatment for anxiety – What can you do?

  • Consult a Doctor or Medical practitioner to get a professional opinion
  • If you think you may have a disorder, ask your doctor to be referred for an assessment
  • Get some counselling through your doctor or by self referral
  • Face your fears and problems. Tackle them head on, get as much support as possible
  • Speak to other people who have been made redundant and share your experiences
  • Speak to family and friends
  • Read self-help books
  • Stay positive
  • Spend time doing things you enjoy and which make you feel relaxed
  • Get creative, try to take your mind off your problems with distractions

Anxiety and depression can be closely related as one can lead to the other, and as such, it is possible to experience symptoms of both.  Everyone will experience varying degrees of anxiety and depression depending on their own individual circumstances and each should be treated for anxiety and depression accordingly.
