Stress at Work

I'm so anxious about not having a full-time job. I'm struggling with the guilt of not making more money, putting a burden on my husband and family. I want to do better, but I also feel trapped, like I don't have a lot of options. Also, my anxiety makes the job search worse because I don't do so well meeting new people, doing new things. I hope I can find a way to relax and have more confidence in myself.

I'm so worried about work tomorrow I can't even imagine forcing my legs to walk voluntary toward that building, through the doors, and into the land of hostility and belittling. I'm going to be judged - evaluated not just by my superiors, but by my peers as well. I am their meek little doormat and they are the all-powerful loudmouths. My inner monologue starts off strong, reminding me that I'm a good person with a strong work ethic, but by the end I'm left feeling useless.

My boss likes to micromanage and when she thinks your not doing something in the exact way she does it she "honks" at you. While the customer is in front of you. Like a fog horn. It's humiliating. And she keeps saying she is going to get a red and green circle of paper so we can see when we are allowed to talk to her or ask her questions. But she didn't train us so everyone is confused. I was so excited for this job but it's only been a month and it's degrading.

I work in Customer Service for 2 years, I hate it. I have had Cancer wished upon me, I have been called the C-word so many times just due to the way our company works. I am now looking for a role further in the company perhaps a more senior one purely because these customers put the fear of God into me If I could pass information onto anyone to try and make my life at work that bit easier, please remember when phoning or live chatting to a support agent, they are human, they have feelings. ta x

I recently lost my job after only six months and I truly believe it's because Inwas vocal about rampant nepotism and other corrupt practices within the org. I am so angry right now - I would run over my ex-boss with my car if I saw him walking on a street. He is 60 and I hope his final years on this earth will be that of suffering.

At my job everyone has a group of friends or a clique, I've never been in any of them because I don't fit in with any of them particularly. The new girl who was working with me made me feel like I actually had a friend but now she's just helping everyone but me, even though she was hired to help me. I just feel really rejected which is probably stupid.

Help! The girl that bully's me at work is being really nice to me and it's making me more stressed. I keep thinking she's setting me up for something. I'm trying to be friendly back but I'm scared. She only picks on me because I can't handle confrontation. I've even gotten permission from management to tell her off. They won't put her in her place but they encourage me to do it. How warped is that? I keep hopping one day will have the guts to stand up for myself.

I interviewed for a job and thought it went really well, but I didn't get it. I feel stupid and sad.

I forgot how to properly create a Wordpress database and my boss got very short with me. I took care of it eventually though.

I'm now stressed I may have lost one job and one I was promised. It's not my fault, but getting any other is going to be almost impossible. It took me 3 Year's to get what got. And now everything may have been blown away.

I had three interviews with one firm and didn't get the job. I feel so defeated. It's been a year of searching and I feel like I have so few options.

I started a new job last Monday and even though I love what I do, it's stressful. So much responsibility and people lives are in my hands. The attention to detail and being able to multitask are key. Everyone else was done so quickly and here I am so slow at everything... Such a learning curve and I go back tomorrow
