WFH helped me hide so much about my social anxiety! I love consulting because I feel it works so well with my ADHD (I don't check the time at all). I am rocking my role like crazy and I enjoy every second of it. But social anxiety is killing me AF.

I don't want to use meds, but at the same time, social interactions can easily make me depressed! I am always scared to fail.

Have you talked to someone about your anxiety? I’ve been seeing a therapist remotely through the pandemic.

I booked a session with a CBT doctor for next week. This will be my first to ask for help.

How did you get through the case interview? Genuine question. The firm I work for did not case me due to my work experience. To your point, I have always crushed technical work and have a ton of leadership.

I am neurodivergent and have failed all of the timed case interviews (BCG x2,Bain, EY-P x2). Do fine in practice and have worked with a coach but I take longer to process ambiguous questions so 25 mins for a case is just not really feasible...

Sorry about that! I failed a lot before landing Bain. For a year, I was obsessed with case interviews and I was practicing a lot before applying. If you can have a peer to practice with, it will be very helpful. You got this 💪

Practice helps a lot. I think many of us become socially anxious when we’re not around people for long periods of time. CBT workbooks help you work through scenarios of evaluating your thoughts and re framing how you think in certain situations.
Are you really “always scared to fail”? I suspect there are times when you’re not. Ponder that …

When I was in college my anxiety diminished because I was involved in many extracurricular activities. Now I have none and my socials skills expired :(.

For the fear of failure, unfortunately, I go through many episodes of rejection-sensitive dysphoria. That's what is killing me the most. It happens at the very crucial moments of my life.

Anyway, that's why I think to see a CBT doctor to help me cope with it.
