I am new to this website and I signed up to specifically ask this question, recently I have been debating my career and whether or not it is right for me (I am only 22 so I have time to change my mind and I have a degree). I am single, I have been for two years and haven't been on a date in a very long time. Lately (over the past month) I have been having the feeling (bare with me) that you get when you lose a relative or close friend, that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, but now I get it every day, what is it? Anxiety? Depression? Worry?

Sounds like anxiety to me. Is there something in your life lately that is causing you excess worry or dread?

Hi! Welcome to the post. It sounds a little like anxiety or your body telling you something. I assume you have worries also that go with the sick feeling hence looking up this website. Good on you for recognizing this sensation and proactively seeking some advice. Talking with people about your concerns/worries can actually be one of the best medicines. It might be that you have a choice to make in regards to your career as quite often anxiety can essentially be a subliminal message from the subconscious that you need to change some things in your life but the problem is the things you need to work on are never obvious and that's where the talking comes in because you can often stumble over the cause. Maybe take a deep look inside and see if you can find anything bothersome floating around in there and address it, failing that try stay concious/aware of what internal dialect is going on to see if there any troubling thoughts flying under the radar. Peace, love and best wishes. There is plenty of support here

My job/future/career. I am a uni graduate, I'm hard working, I want to do well and progress but I can't seem to find anything, there are many jobs I'd love to do but I can't seem to get into them.

I can see this is very important to you, and it’s only natural to feel anxious and nervous about your future. I don’t want to downplay your feelings, but It’s easy to overthink things. I wouldn’t worry too much, you’re young and you have time. And if you end up choosing a path and happen to later on change your mind, you can always just pick another. Try not to put too much stress on yourself. I’m sure you’ll figure things out. Best of luck.

Thank you, that is genuinely helpful, I am a rational person and know I have time but I feel like I am more than capable but still can't find anything!

It sounds like you have a lot on your mind. I know when I have a lot on my mind I can feel it in my body. Sometimes I feel sick or like you said like a sense of loss. I'm sorry you are going through this. Sometimes it take a while to find that right job. Someone once told me that you have to make finding a job a full-time job. Maybe consider writing down things that you like to do then match it up with a profession. Maybe it will take some of the pressure off of you. Maybe consider returning to your school and speaking with an employment/placement specialist. Maybe they can point you in the right direction to finding a job. If you are not feeling better, maybe consider seeing a professional counselor. They would be able to talk to you and find the root of why you are feeling this way. Wishing you the best.

Welcome to the forum! :)

It would be wrong to self-diagnose because the only person who would be qualified - ad experienced - to help is your doctor. Tell me though, does this feeling in your stomach go away or lessen when you drink tea and / or have breakfast?

Sometimes anxiety can be associated with low sugar in one's bloodstream, but a good breakfast will make one feel better. Again, ask your doctor.

When we work really hard, forgoing social media and social activities to instead, study, then we get to achieve excellent qualifications: The fruit of our hard work and dedication!

You will be proud of working hard, so give yourself a mental pat on the back. Because I believe we don't praise ourselves enough, and I think we need to more and more. These days a degree is almost always desired by employees, but during seasonal recess like summer and winter holidays, do consider voluntary work overseas as this will give you extra experience and good info for your CV.

I wish you all the best!
