Stress at Work

I just started this new position and I feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water. I've got to help others and be perky and solve everyones problem while doing my work and learning new things and how to read new people. Was I really cut out for this?

I did it! I survived one whole day at work without panicking and having a nervous breakdown. It went well just can't believe i made it, but thinking i have another 1 month to go makes me nervous and worried again. If i can make it for a month then i should continue working. Slowly...step by step... I'm sure i can do this!

Sometimes I get anxious even venting about work stress and problems as the venting brings to mind just how much is wrong at work.

I felt myself getting sucked into depression yesterday. I felt myself turning inward and avoiding the others in the office. I left the office and went for a 20 minute power walk. When I returned, I was able to openly engage and chat with others without feeling overly self conscious!

I finally got a job, its nothing much but atleast now i have one but then i'm scared. Starting work tmr, what if i can't wakeup ? What if i do it halfway and quit like my previous job? I don't want to panic in a middle of doing some work. Why is this so difficult for me? Ugh! Please, hopefully i can wakeup tmr!!! 😔🙏🏾

Start work tomorrow. I'm not freaking out as much as feeling REALLY insecure. I KNOW I can do this job, I just know I can, it's a matter of finding a place. Once I'm familiar with it and confident, I know I'll be able to do everything expected of me with confidence. It's this damned anxiety and negative self talk!! I'll be fine! I know that. So why are my guts completely twisted?? Gonna read over my cognitive therapy sheets again before bed. And tea. And meditation. Then, I hope, sleep.

Quand je n'ai pas toutes les bonnes données pour réaliser un travail de précision, ça m'oppresse car je n'aime pas les erreurs !

I feel like my boss doesn't respect me. I start to doubt everything I do because I fear I'm not good enough.

I know I shouldn't let me boss stress me out the way he does, but as soon as he shows up to work my mood plummets. I know logically that it isn't something that should bother me and isn't my fault, and yet it still does.

I got a bad review at work. I try so hard and work so much. I felt like I was doing a good job. I even thought I was about to get a raise and a promotion. I feel blindsided and ashamed. I feel like a failure.

I know the next two weeks are going to be ridiculously stressful at work. Trying to keep it from infecting every other aspect of my life. I've not been successful in that in the past but I have to keep trying.

I did not go to work today. I just can't take seeing everyone at work today especially my horrible boss.

I just started this job with a group who has worked together for 15+ years. They work so well together like a well-oiled machine and the best I can do is just fumble around blindly. They also complain about how I never talk, but I'm just too scared to even think about engaging them in conversation. I don't want to mess up anything and get fired. I NEED to pay off my student loans and I live in a horrible job market. This is the only place that would even look at my resume.

My workplace just adds to my anxiety and depression. I work in the quietest office where no one cares to ask how you are. I have asked them simple questions like "how was your weekend?" No answer. I sit for 8 hours in a room full of people in utter silence. I'd prefer to be alone instead of constantly ignored like this.

I love my job passionately but dont get paid enough. I've already gotten a raise and am actually making more in my field than others. The stress of lack of money is making me uncomfortable. But, I don't want to quit either because I love my job. I wish there was a job I could love and get enough money in

My boss promised me on several occasions that she would not leave me alone to tend customers until I was ready and well-trained. This was literally my sixth day and I was left completely alone. I don't know the order of how to do things and I had several customers come up to me at once. I messed up every order and was the cusp of a panic attack the entire day. It is so difficult being on edge like that. I didn't even get a lunch break and I worked a seven hour shift. I hate this place.

Started my new job today and it seems to be going well. Much more comfortable after day 1 because I've been welcomed and greeted well. But wow. Some of the side looks I catch because I was brought in and didn't work there! If looks could kill. I've had several doubts about my suitability. A couple of them even kind of talked quietly and looked at me occasionally. That ramped up my anxiety wondering how much they hated me. I decided I couldn't care. I have a job to do...but ugh...

I start work at a new job tomorrow. In some ways I'm feeling calmer about it the closer it gets. Maybe it's becoming a concrete thing instead of an abstract fear. I'm not sure. I'm highly anxious about things surrounding the job. I've also been happy about getting it, but my fear and anxiety has been overriding the positive feelings. More income solves so many problems and will be a source of confidence, I hope. I'm trying to focus on the happy, and not on the fear. Emphasize trying.

Hasta el año pasado no aguantaba mas, hoy en dia estoy mejor en el trabajo mas allá de mi ansiedad.

I'm so bummed about the new job. I feel useless and stupid. The employees know my job, I don't k ow what my job is even FOR! I'm supposed to manage, but they manage themselves. It's set up so the staff has maximum responsibility. I'm expected to do their jobs plus my own plus be in conferences and all this other crap, so they end up doing more than I do. I have no purpose there. I'm so confused. I expected to have more work, but what work? I don't know what to do.
