Stress at Work

Sometimes I get so stressed out about going to work that I end up having a panic attack. I will look for any excuse I can just to get out of going. Every time i set foot in what place I can feel the panic set in.

Every time I actually try to take ownership of my tasks at work (which was an issue addressed in my 6 month review, and basically means that I need to make the decisions rather than deferring to others), one of my coworkers bypasses me and loops my supervisor in because they think I was mistaken/shouldn't have done X task the way I did. How do I win? This is why I constantly check in and am always so anxious to not ask before doing something. If this keeps happening I'll never gain confidence.

I used to stress a ton about working, and thought I could never handle anything more than part time. Now I've been working full time for 4 years and am very confident in my capabilities.

I've just been diagnosed with anxiety. I've gone from a high functioning professional at one organisation to another where I have been put on performance management. Thanks Anxiety. I thought I was going insane. They say I'll my old self again but I'm not sure. The simplest of tasks seem so hard and they're only few aspects of the job that I struggle with. One day at a time I guess.

With a dissertation due in 6 days I'm finding it hard not to stress out all the time. I keep remembering things I haven't done and I end up being quite unproductive. Any advice to keep motivated would be great

I have a guy at work who doesn't respect me because im a woman. Im the assistant mgr. he cussed at me the other day. I wrote him up for the 4th time and my boss won't get rid of him still. she's also a woman. Now my overactive imagination kicked in and im worried that im the one who's in trouble somehow. I know I didn't do anything wrong though.

My work stress is that I don't work. I can't seem to get a job anywhere near my house, and my license is suspended... Need money for a bus pass (not that my city's public transit is even helpful). Need money for a bike. Need money to go to school.... It's just a never ending circle of hopelessness.

I ve been off for the week and will be returning to work Monday. I am dreading Monday. I don't know what to expect. I don't want to feel like this any more.

Everything finally caught up with me. This year I got married, moved three times, moved to a different state, bought a house, having a baby and started a new job. I'm constantly thinking about the wife because of complications, I'm thinking about the baby and how she's being affected. It's starting to affect my job performance and I'm the new guy. My confidence is shot, two of my coworkers doesn't have patience to teach me, I have no clue what I'm doing on some days.My resilience is being tested

I get bored with any task very fast always. I try to find reasons to motivate myself, but it doesn't work for much time. Am I a failure?

I'm quite new to my job and I only could really talk to one co-worker because of my anx. I knew my manager and 2 other co-workers were a week or two leaving me to be the only person who isn't new, but tonight apparently the one girl I trusted to go to and everyone else decided to leave. No one said goodbye and im panicking because I now have no one I can go to with questions with out freaking out. I don't know how to do enough to function without help yet.

Both my dept manager and the store head at my job have essentially said my education doesn't matter as long as I can come to work. My manager tried to get me to skip my first day of college just to come into work, and the store head said if he knew I was going to change my hours for school he wouldn't have hired me, even though I stated numerous times during the interview that I would have to do just that. I told my mom and she wants me to find a new job even though the first job hunt was hell

I just applied for my first job today and now I have to wait for a call whether I got the job or not. I'm really anxious. Anybody on the same boat?

My boss is moving to another department. We just started working on how to improve our communication so he stops treating me like crap, and now they are moving him. I don't do good with unknown and this is making things worse.
