Hi everyone,

I got a job back at McDonald's back in May as I figured it wouldn't hurt to earn some extra money to save up for material for my college course and just to have some extra spending money in general. Being 19, I also wanted to be financially independent from my parents and I was feeling really happy to have to the opportunity to do so.

In 2013 I had a very bad time with anxiety, it resulted in me leaving school a year early and not leaving the house except for the countless trips to the doctors or to receive therapy. I didn't enjoy school and after many months of pent up stress and anxiety that was the result.

It took me a long time to recover from this but gradually I've became more and more confident and anxiety hasn't been much of problem! This lead to me getting a job. There was some initial nerves about starting but I figured they would go away, however they never did. Working here has been really unpleasant, I'm picked on by a manager, I'm constantly being shouted at by co-workers and customers for petty mistakes, my availability and holiday requests are often ignored despite how many times I say to the manager and I am scheduled for more hours than I want to work.

I feel miserable. I cry and get anxious before every shift. I'm so upset with myself because I was doing so well with my anxiety and now I'm back to square one. I want to quit very badly and my parents are supportive of this decision but I don't want to seem like a coward and I feel it's really embarrassing only lasting three months at McDonald's but I really don't feel cut out for it.

I guess I'm wondering if it would be giving into my anxiety if I quit? Should I tough it out a while longer? I have no idea what to do!
