Stress at Work

I'm quite a paranoid person and every time a boss says "let's have a chat in the office" I think I'm going to get fired. Way to go anxiety!

My boss and I have such an awkward relationship. I can never tell his mood or how he is feeling. It makes me anxious because I can't figure out if I've done something wrong. It's making me feel worse and worse everyday.

Building a startup has been a challenge to say the least. I'm also lucky enough to be getting married this summer, but it provides an added amount of stress that has been difficult to handle at times. What has kept me grounded is being able to acknowledge that negative thought is just that; it isn't based in rational thought. Sometimes those thoughts take hold and it's hard to pull away from but every time I do it helps me acknowledge just how lucky I really am.

I work as a supervisor at a local pet store. I love my job and the ability to help people learn new things about pet care. I am damn good at my job. But some days, the rotten rich people, the awful coworkers and stress of trying to keep our numbers up gets to me. It's hard some days to bring myself to come here. I wish this wasn't the case as I want to be here and help out rescues. I try my hardest on those days to remember why I am here.

I am struggling with work, and I don't know why. Its difficult work, and I deal with people constantly. But I mess up, I put the wrong drink down, or I make someone's drink wrong, and when I make one mistake, it makes me anxious, and that anxiety makes my proformance worse. I work better when my boss isn't there, but when he is there I am anxious. I'm trying to be more confident, because I work better when I'm confident, but its very hard. One day at a time.

My boss told me I wouldn't be closing the restaurant all week. She lied, I close everyday for 2 weeks. This is why I have trust issues.

I work with my husband and after many years working together we're having a lot of difficulty balancing life and work. Plus having a baby in the mix is creating so much stress. We're being very distant because we can't separate work from family. I've decided to stop working together to save us. But now I don't know where I belong. Redefining myself is more difficult than I imagined.

Lack of work stress. Six months of constant job applications is making my anxiety so much worse. Each cover letter seems more and more meaningless. It really makes me feel terrible about myself and my abilities.

I have so much work to do in school. I can't do any homework without wanting to cry. On top of that, I never do well in school

When my stress was on its worst, I would get anxiety attacks just from checking my mail, to see if I forgot to do some homework.

I'm trying to juggle so many things at once. 40 hours of placement a week, exam study and working when I have a free minute. I can't remember when my chest didn't feel tight and I didn't feel like I was drowning.

Currently making the decision to switch to part time from full time due to all negative energy/work environment I deal with on a daily.(bad management/short staffed) It's so hard because I need the money to support myself but then again my mental sanity is more important and but then I always remind myself, I need to not worry about what others think of my decisions. I'm living MY life for ME. I've been doing great managing my depression but right now I need a new job or at least less hours. :/

I work from home and set my own hours. Not having anyone to keep me in check is really hurting my productivity, and I'm so afraid that I'm going to mess something up that I can't even look at my computer some days. The fear of doing it wrong is keeping me from doing it at all!

My boss told me today that from Monday I have to find somewhere else to sit. I couldn't believe it. I get no say & I feel like I'm being punished.

Every few years I have moved for my job and it is driving me to madness. I hate packing so much and I struggle with feeling overly sentimental about the littlest things, so much so that I keep accumulating more stuff to move. The amount of random crap I have is depressing, but I am always worried about not having something when I need it (I grew up poor) and not being able to afford to buy it new. So yeah, I hate moving.

I think I have an offer from a job I really want. They lead me on to think they would pay me above the avg wave. They're not, and I think I may have screwed it up already.

My work stress has gotten out of hand. I'm young, I was taken advtage of an older coworker. Rumors began to spread and he began telling people a lie just to save his job. His story made me look absolutely insane. Nearly every girl doesn't like me and every boy thinks I'm desperate and weird. This work environment is not good for me. I see this man every day and have to act like nothing has happened. My stress has reached uncontrollable amounts and I can't cope with my own thoughts
