    so i suffer quite badly with anxiety and i worry about everything. I'm 19 and currently have a part time job but it's really bad hours and pay. The only reason i've stayed so long is because i love everyone there so much and couldn't bear to leave them. I've been applying for other jobs and recently got an interview for a shop with really high pay. However a few hours before the interview i had a panic attack and couldn't stop crying and decided not to go. This happens every time before an interview and idk what to do. I'm too scared to get a new job and be the new person and i don't want to leave everyone at my old job. should i just keep my old job even though it's crap pay or suck it up and get a new one although i feel i won't be happy if i do?

    Are you getting help for your anxiety? I think you need to work on that first and then maybe sort out the work situation?
