Anxiety and panic attacks
Basically, fear is a natural emotional response triggered by perceived threats, and it serves as an important survival mechanism to respond to danger.

Burnout and depression
Burnout is a state of emotional, mental and often physical exhaustion caused by prolonged stress and excessive demands, particularly in a professional context. It is characterized by symptoms such as lack of energy, disinterest and reduced performance, often accompanied by a feeling of hopelessness and ineffectiveness at work. Depression is a mental illness that affects mood, thinking, and behavior and is manifested by persistent sadness, loss of interest or enjoyment in activities one once enjoyed, and feelings of worthlessness and fatigue.

Compulsions are recurring, unwanted thoughts, impulses, or images (obsessive thoughts), as well as repeated, ritualized behaviors or mental actions (compulsive actions) that a person feels to reduce fear or discomfort or to prevent feared events or situations.

Compulsions are behaviors or mental acts that a person performs repeatedly, usually according to strict rules or in a ritualized manner, often in the belief that they will avert harmful events or reduce anxiety.
