Depresion and anxiety in the workplace

Hi Guys,

Ryan here, it is 40 degrees I am laying on my sun lounger, not a thing to stress or worry about beside the kids attempting to kill each other in the pool. But every now and then something will remind me of work and the strangest thought's pop in my head like 'did I get that part right', 'did I inform any one of certain tasks', and so on and so on. Is this my curse, so I thought, but while catching up on some reading I stumbled across a conversations on one of the motor forum I visit.

Personally I just hope it teachers people to park better ..
