Which Jobs Could Ignite Anxiety?
Dr. Rachel Rohaidy
According to recent studies, nurses are more likely to suffer from anxiety because of their work. Psychiatrist Rachel Rohaidy says they’re dealing with “very serious issues daily and then have to go home and deal with whatever issue they have in their own life. It can become quite overwhelming.”
Another study from Nurse Magazine suggests that nurses suffer from depression at twice the rate of the general population. Psychotherapist Teresita Calero mentions they’re giving a lot of themselves and, although there are some boundaries, the feelings are there. “We are caregivers,” she adds.
