Has anyone else really struggled with compulsion and anxiety/doing things impulsively? My entire life I’ve always gotten away with doing things by the skin of my teeth and feeling a rush from getting away with things. For example, it started with waiting until the last second for assignments and still getting decent grades. As a 24y/o I feel it’s manifesting in toxic ways and I’m now stretching myself to my last dollar or being compulsively late just to feel that rush. I think I need help.

I'm really struggling. My company just furloughed some staff and I'm beating myself up about it. I keep thinking maybe there was something I could have done better to get the right kind of leads or maybe I made the wrong call on a pitch that could have brought in enough business to save people's jobs. Anyone else have these feelings? I know its survivor's guilt, but I feel like I've let my coworkers and their families down.
