Stress at Work

I got lunch with my co-workers. I'm very socially anxious and I (think) it went well :)

So much to do *sigh* It's like I am always freaking out worrying about all the things that need to be done

I want critiques so I can be better at my job, but constructive criticism always sends me into an anxiety attack.

My last day is Friday. I'm a little nervous but mostly relieved. Quitting is the best thing I could have done for my sanity, health, and relationship.

Had two panic attacks at work today. Now I have to try and explain to my questioning staff what the heck happened. If only I could explain it without getting the eye brow raise and the "oh really" and then the pity look.

I hate having to coach myself to actually go to work everyday. It's hard not calling out or going back after a day off.

I am exhausted by anxiety and my fear of failure. My fear of failure zaps me of any energy I might have to try and work to actually succeed. Where does this fear come from? My parents lived like they were failures and they wanted very much the opposite for us, kids. Yet all their fear has enveloped and paralyzed me. I'm too scared and tired to move forward. I want very badly for things to change.

I finally got an interview for a new job after searching for months and messed it up. My anxiety ruins everything.

Everyday it gets harder for me to go to work, because my boss screams at me every day about something. Wished I could quit without fear of not being able to find another job.

I'm 1 of 3 assistants in a busy law firm. One of us is leaving in a week, and the lawyers have decided not to replace her. My workload is going to be 1.5x what it was with no pay raise. I'm so stressed about the extra work and mad about the lack of respect. Too scared to quit tho, because what if I can't find anything else?

School ends Friday, and Saturday morning I start training for a full time job when I've never worked before. Super overwhelmed and scared of how it will go

I feel I make no difference to anything in my current job. This makes me feel worthless at times. It really makes me value my free time, but the feeling still persists

I actually love my job, but struggle to deal with the high levels if stress it causes me. I can't seem to internalize the positive and seem to give people the impression that I don't like it because I'm a venter. Many times venting helps me process and come up with solutions for diffrent issues, but I'm sure that it's becoming a burden to my family and close coworkers, and just seems to perpetuate my negativity. I'm not sure how to get out if this frustrating habit.

I love my job but it's busy season. I'm working from 8:30 am until 1 am every day this week. I'm away from home for 3 months for work and all I need is to be with my family. I'm always anxious early in the morning about my boss and things that he needs. My job is two positions and part of it is his assistant. How many 23 year olds work as much and as hard as I do?

I'm starting a new job, which I'm excited for but yet it gives me so much anxiety.

I'm finding it more and more difficult to get out of bed for work. I have no motivation to do anything when there's no work waiting for me and thinking about applying for a new job makes me super anxious. I hate being in this rut

So today I was working and I had to get up at 5 am to get there and be ready to work by 645 and I got up at 630 made it just in time and then a few orders in I had to make tea and I spilled it everywhere in front of the customer and my coworkers laughed at me and it just made me feel really shitty. I was so tired and I haven't been feeling well. ALSO MY "FRIEND" AT WORK DECIDES TO TALK ABOUT ME BEHIND MY BACK AND I CANT STAND PEOPLE LIKE THAT.

A task I took over for the first time for my supervisor today took me 6 hours. I never took a break or a lunch. I had tons of problems with it and felt anxious because my supervisor wasn't there to help. Of course the moment she leaves the office for the summer is the moment I need the most help. I nearly cried because I thought I made a horrible mistake. I hate doing other people's jobs when they're the ones who were deeply involved with the task and have way more background on situations.

Sick of working long hours until 11 o'clock in the night on college days for crap pay

So I started a new job recently and it's super stressful bc I have bad social anxiety and it's a retail job where there's a lot of confrontation and interaction. I'm barely making 20 hours a week and I need more to save money to pay for my rent and school in the fall and I can't find a second job so I'm panicking daily. Life can be so difficult and I don't know what to do. Plus my manager asked me if I was pregnant in front of coworkers and humiliated me and I'm not so now I hate going in. Help

I was suppose to go work today but i couldnt wake up like always. Aside from having a hard time to get up, i would always feel stress and scared about bad and embarrasing things that could happen at work, in the end when i finally got up frm sleep, and its already pass the time to go for work, i felt like a failure because i used to do that back when i was still schooling. Never got up to do anything productive, always a failure.
