Stress at Work

I'm frustrated with constantly having to pick up the ball that coworkers drop. Slackers get away with slacking and the good employees constantly have to do twice the work to make up for it. The managers say they understand but they don't do anything to fix it. They just always ask for more from their good employees. It's exhausting.

my social anxiety has gotten me to such an isolated place where it's hard to be my old jokey self. Now I am scared of people and physically recoil when I see someone coming my way, not to mention, I avoid eye contact whenever possible. I'm afraid all this together has made me look unapproachable and aloof. I find my coworkers for the most part fun and energetic and I'd love to get to know them but give off such a negative self-image that I make others uncomfortable. I want to get rid of this

I am so fed up with my management not communicating with me. I ALWAYS let them know things that are going on that they should know about. And they don't tell me nothing. It's so frustrating to hear things tbrough my coworkers instead of through my managers. Isn't that why we have managers?! I mean good grief people. I feel like I'm the one running the show in our department. I don't get paid to act like a boss because my management is crap.

There are people at work and in my personal life who make me feel so inadequate and like I'm not good at anything. They always have to know better or be right. I know it shouldn't get to me because inside I know I'm right sometimes but I'd like her to accept she isn't always queen bee and others can be right or better than her.

I can't stand my job right now. All of the managers (like me) are treated badly, the GM can't even handle the owners anymore, and we've already had a lot of people, crew and managers, quit. I can't handle being there but I keep staying cause i feel bad for leaving them short even more people. It's affecting my health and I'm so depressed with insane amounts of anxiety. I don't know how to just put in my notice and quit. I'm too scared... I need help... I don't know what to do anymore.

My job is stressful and I do not enjoy it. I make excuses not to go. Its not that I'm lazy but corporate life isnt for me. I don't suit the greed and attitude needed for big business. Its taking a toll on me mentally.

I have an interview today for a really good career opportunity and I'm so nervous and anxious that I'm afraid I'm going to mess up. I've spoken with the owner of the company and he is very excited to have me, so the interviews are really just a formality, but I can't help but worry I'm going to mess up the interview and a chance to really change my life. I don't know what to do to calm myself down.

I've been at my job for a month and I love it, but it's also overwhelming me. Everyone else in the small office has known each other so long and I feel like I'll never fit in. I also really like my direct boss and have spent the last month bending over backwards trying to impress him and I feel like he either doesn't care or just doesn't like me

I'm starting work placement in a hospital tomorrow. I'm so nervous and anxious about it as I will be assessed on my competency and worry whether I'm good enough.

I have been at my job for going on two years. I am also looking forward to 2016 and what I want to do. I am stuck in between transferring to another department, or putting in my two weeks notice. Getting a degree is on my to do list and I'm wondering if work is really important to me as much as my eduCation. So much on my mind right now. So that is all .

How to deal with a person that takes pleasure on gossiping about you? I'll now have to work with someone like this and I'm afraid all I do or say will be used by her to jeopardize me with my boss and coworkers. I can't run, but I'm thinking about closing myself on a shell of impassivity, but the very thought about her harmfulness makes me anxious

No jury trials this week. Trial is so stressful and I hate the way I feel during trial. It is exhausting and takes me days to recover. **sigh of relief**

My coworkers know I have GAD, but can never tell when I'm freaking out -- like no, for example. I'm supposed to smile and be okay for my 12 hour shift today. I'm 3.5 hours in and have already secretly cried twice. I love my job! I love my coworkers! Why is this so hard today

I'm exhausted... I work "full-time" hours but am considered part-time so no benefits... Am being thrown into different areas that am not use to or comfterble in and the department manager makes me feel like an idiot for not getting things right away, and the icing on the cake is we are sevearly understaffed so I'm pretty much on my own for the first 6 or so hrs of my shift...

Mi trabajo a estado muy cargado en estos días, mucha presión por terminar, junto con un ataque de ansiedad que intente aguantar pero al fin me gano. No me siento mal por eso, creo necesitaba sacarlo pero me hace sentir un poco disfuncional y me gustaría cambiarlo.

I'm good at my job and am moving up but know that I am wasting my potential as an office drone. But I'm too afraid to look for something else and have no idea what I would do anyway.
