I find losing myself in my work frightening.

I find losing myself in my work the only escape from this ever increasingly strange & troubled world.

I have an extremely dysfunctional relationship to my work. It regularly causes me anxiety attacks during which I worry I am going crazy. No amount of professional help has addressed this to my satisfaction. I used to have a doodle from my psychologist in a frame that spelled out how anxiety undermined me, but it left out the part about how to make the anxiety go away. Working should be a chance to put in order something thoughtful, or beautiful, or to just get something done, but I always stall at seeing what I do in terms of something worthwhile... when very clearly there is a grade attached which I require to pass my course.
