I was born with a heart condition called SVT, Is it safe to stay at work ?

I am 21 years old and was born with a heart condition called SVT. Recently I have been diagnosed as suffering from anxiety because of an enormous amount of pressure and bullying at work. Ultimately my question is can this anxiety affect my SVT and if so, how badly? I probably should have mentioned that i m being bullied by the senior partner at my works. they ve known about it since march. although they now appear to be trying to solve the problem I don t think they will actually help me.

Are you my neighbor?!?! My neighbor and good friend has this problem and ended up rushing to the hospital because of stress and bullying at work. The mistake she made was that she did not report the bullying or CLEARLY tell her boss when they condition limitations were being ignored... no one took her condition serious and she was 'forced' to do work that was not the best thing for her condition.. she overexerted herself.. collapsed at work and had to be rushed to the hospital. Your work NEEDS to know that your problem is very Serious.. if possible bring a doctors note in stating your problem and what you can and cannot perform at your job.. that way it is on paper if you have any problems with the job later down the line.. They need to be informed of what is going on.
