How Does Anxiety Affect One’s Ability to Work?

Published on August 25th, 2020

Did you know that anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders in the US? There are many reasons as to why your anxiety can hinder your ability to work. Diseases such as obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder all fall under the broader category of anxiety and come with severe side-effects that impact your daily life. Our team at Rabin and Associates knows how these diseases can affect your ability to work, which is why our disability lawyers in Chicago, Il will be your biggest advocate.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive compulsive disorder, also referred to as OCD, can severely impact your day-to-day tasks and hinder your ability to complete tasks in a timely manner. With compulsions that you are unable to control, you shouldn’t have to agonize going to work.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

With PTSD, your brain suffers from repeated emotional responses due to an event that has severely affected you. This response is often frightening and prevents those with PTSD to go out into certain public places as even the smallest things like specific noises can be triggering and lead to panic.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder can happen to someone repeatedly throughout the day and comes with dreadful side-effects such as trouble breathing, increased heart rate, and severe nausea. This will make going to work much more difficult when having to wonder when your next panic attack may occur.

It is important to remember that mental illnesses are just as impactful as a physical disability. Many mental illnesses often cause physical side-effects which takes years of therapy and the right dosage of medication to treat.
