Having panic attacks

Got a letter from HR telling me I either return to work or resign after six months of being out. I am in the SSDI process, so will not be returning. Anything having to do with my job sends me into panic mode.

I was okayed by the long-term disability insurance company to receive monthly payments. I'm concerned that resignation will effect my LTD insurance payments and health insurance, which I'm paying fully now

I'm calling HR tomorrow. Just so worried, I didn't sleep last night. Trying to stay calm, but it's hard not to be anxious.

Thanks for reading. I really don't have anyone to vent to

11 years ago today I got laid off

From my good-paying dream job. One I worked so very hard to get. It still makes me angry and sad, but it hurts less this year than usual.

It was then my life started spiraling out of control.

Feeling claustrophobic

I'm off work on disability. I spend time at home. I'm a homebody, but I get anxious and feel a bit claustrophobic at times. My apt is about 900 sq feet.

Just wondering if anyone else ever feels this way. I don't have a garden, unfortunately
