Depends entirely on country in my opinion.
In countries with social welfare - take a timeout. By timeout I mean 3-6 months depending on how fucked you are.
Find out what you like, find out what your next job should be and regenerate in this time. Look for a therapist.
If you live in a country without welfare... A timeout will be close to impossible, unless you have some savings... try to find a mundane job and try - if payable - to find a therapist.
Demolishun1840940dExercise and socialize. What are your options here? Being isolated leads to mental illness as you are experiencing. Can you be around people? Find a way to do this.
ryios940dWhat country do you live in?
I've been in this boat and just never found a good place to work, but I've found them now and am super happy.
Additionally, I got into some active hobbies, like mountain biking, four wheeling, hiking etc and endorphins really helped me!
We don't have social welfare. But I have been doing some introspection and I think I should take 3-6 months break and hopefully will figure out what to do next in that time. But I don't have enough savings to take time off.
So, I am looking for a different role where I won't need to crank out code as much.
I have developed a bit of social anxiety being cooped up at the house for most of the time. But I do hang out with my girlfriend and friends. But that leaves me even more exhausted sometimes.
Since I dropped the resignation letter. I have been doing nothing but playing video games to keep my mind oppcupied. All I am trying to do is not have another panic attack
Yeah, even though the pay is really good and what I always wanted. company culture is not at all suited for my work style.
I think I work better with smaller startups.
I am thinking about accepting an offer at a smaller company with almost half the salary of what I am getting here. Also, maybe working from office will help with my anxiety.
just stop working and they will fire you :)
hardCoding15338dMental health is serious business. Do take it seriously.
If you need less stress, you need less stress. Go live with your parents for a while if you have any, and if that's what will help you.
