Anyone in this field struggle with social anxiety? I have a pretty severe case and am constantly uncomfortable and anxious at work. Any advice?

Reporting what a friend of mine told me so take it with a pinch of salt (NOT a psychologist!). Write down on a notebook (to keep at home, not at work) what you do not like at your job. It could be "do not like my boss" to "the coffee machine is always broke" or "xyz frustrates me when..." etc. Every evening write down everything that made you sad/anxious/pissed off during the day. Repeat the process for about 3 weeks - 3 months. If you read it all you should start seeing a pattern of what makes you uncomfortable, you are trying to pin point the problem. Once you find the core of the problem(s), start looking how you can solve them. Depending on the seriousness or topic it would helpful to talk to some expert in the field. EXAMPLE: You find out that you feel inferior to your peers because abc. You may talk to a psychologist, then to HR... You feel lonely and the job is stressful (in a toxic way). Try to revive an old time passion (music or sports works great), try something new (new activities, new friend from a different background), start reading, join a local religious community ... I know this answer may not have helped you much but without much information it is the best I could do. If you have any kind of question do not hesitate texting me! :-)
