I’m really depressed I can’t even handle a simple task. When I can’t complete the task, I panic and get very anxious. When I get anxious, I hyperventilate or just shut down for the day. This sucks.

You're doing an amazing job by posting this and recognizing what's happening to your mental wellbeing. Try to find the trigger of your anxiety and step away from it for a while as you recuperate and learn more about yourself. If it's triggered by work, then consider taking a break to give yourself room to breathe.

Go see a therapist. Sounds like you just have to recognize your anxiety and move forward. It’ll take time in a fast environment.

Thank you all for listening to me vent. Honestly yall made my day a tad bit better.

And yeah... it seems like I really do need to go seek a professional help, I just hope my insurance covers mental health as well

I’ve dealt with something similar. First, seek support from a therapist to see what issues you can work through. Next, when you get a task just put ANYTHING down. Starting is the hardest part. I know it sounds silly but once you put elements on the page you have something to go off of, like a springboard. Also listen to something that makes you feel better. I used to stream the office because it weirdly comforted me. I hope things get better!

Try to talk to someone- in the meantime sometimes playing music or an old movie in the background is a comforting distraction (enough to get something done)

Who says you can't compkete simple tasks? Sometimes, getting corrected constantly is a form of mentorship. Try not to take it too personally, and see that whoever is constantly telling you that it's not good enough sees a bright future for you.

You got this my friend!

But yeah... a therapist is also probably a good idea 😋

Already some good advice here. Take things and break it down into smaller subtasks. Make checklists of those subtasks and check them off. One thing that helps me through out the day is to get up and take walks. Helps clear the head.
